I LOVE to celebrate EVERY holiday I can and made up as it may be, I am all in this year on celebrating Christmas in July! And what better way to celebrate than with a Frozen Hot Chocolate and breaking out your favorite Santa mug.
I also love to plan a couple of fun “Christmasy” activities to fill the day with too. Even adults need a little Christmas fun sometimes too! Grab yourself a pack of these awesome no-melt snowballs for a little indoor snowball fight!
This Frozen Hot Chocolate reminds me of the time I was in NYC and has to seek out Serendipity 3 and have one there! And since they are currently closed due to COVID (BOO!) this is the next best thing to having one at the iconic restaurant.
If you want even more Christmas Goodness, take a look at my Christmas Advent Calendar from the 2019 season. Maybe you need a good Christmas Cookie to accompany your Frozen Hot Chocolate!
What you need!
Just a couple ingredients and you will be on your way to enjoying a Frozen Hot Chocolate even Serendipity 3 would be proud of.
The key to a GREAT hot chocolate is FAT! So you want to use at a minimum, Half and Half. But I like the mix of mostly heavy cream and some whole milk. The richness is what makes hot cocoa so good.
1 C Heavy Cream
3/4 C Whole Milk
6 Tablespoons Hot Cocoa Mix
12oz cup of Ice
I use my Sugar-Free Hot Cocoa Mix for this, one because I always have some in the house, and with the little bit of kick it has from the cinnamon and cayenne it makes it just a little extra special!
Frozen Hot Chocolate
- High-Speed Blender
- 1 C Heavy Cream
- 3/4 C Whole Milk
- 6 Tablespoons Hot Cocoa Mix
- 12 oz cup of Ice
- Place the cream, milk, and cocoa mix in the blender. Blend on low 60 seconds to dissolve the cocoa mix and get it well dispersed. Add in the cup of ice and blend on high until you no longer hear large pieces of ice being blended, 30-45 seconds. Serve in a Christmas mug with a spray of whipped cream on top and enjoy!

Here are a few links to some of my favorite kitchen tools! You get a car, YOu get a car, YOU ALL GET A CAR…in my best Oprah voice
These Rösle Silicone Tongs are a little pricey but they will last you the rest of your life and are the softest in your hand. This is important for someone like m that cooks so much. It reduces strain, I have 4 sets in my kitchen!
These are my FAVE Nordic Ware Sheet Pans, every kitchen should have at least 2 sets of these! I think I have at least 4 of each of these.
This is my favorite pressure cooker, the Fagor is the same concept as the “Instant Pot” but easier to use in my opinion, if you don’t have one you NEED one, it will be your best friend in the kitchen!
A sharp knife is the most important tool in the kitchen, these Japanese steel “Shun” knives are my favorite! And this is a great starter set to build on. Once you try them you will be in love so use this as a foundation you can build on for years to come.
This Scanpan 11″ skillet is just the right size for almost anything you will need to cook and my best friend and a real workhorse in my kitchen, it’s also a great deal at $99. Scanpan is the best in the world for healthy cooking. It is coated with a proprietary ceramic-titanium coating that is durable while allowing you to use fewer fats and oils when cooking. It is a coating only they use. I could talk all day about my love for these pans, message me if you want more info. Here are some other sizes that are available if you are looking to outfit your kitchen with some new goodies. 8″ & 10″ Skillet set or 8″ Skillet, I still need this one for my kitchen Also, I don’t really know how to cook small so the 12.5″ is my other fave!
This giant vat of olive oil is my favorite, I decant it into a smaller bottle for my counter. Or put this spigot on top of a wine bottle!
My favorite baking dish that is so easy to clean even burnt on cheese slides right off!
This Tovolo jar scraper has to be my single favorite kitchen tool, it is definitely the most used tool in my kitchen. If you are NOT a gadget person, this is the only necessity I say is a MUST beyond the wooden spoon.
A great wood spoon is essential, this Olive Wood one is my favorite, I have more than I can count. But can you really ever have too many?
A food scale can be a very important tool in your kitchen, this one is the one I use every day!
