Serendipity’s Frrrozen Hot Chocolate

This summer has been so hot that baking is often out of the question.  Days like these, you are better off just cooling off with a cold beverage.  So, today’s post is a simple way to make your taste buds smile. 

Serendipity’s Frrrozen Hot Chocolate originates in Serendipity 3, an NYC restaurant.  I’ve had the original there and this famous recipe was released directly from the restaurant for their 50th anniversary.  No tweaks, no caveats, just make it.

    You totally read my mind. I just told my kids not one hour ago that we were making frozen hot chocolate this weekend. I found a recipe a couple days ago from Serendipity. : ) Looks delicious.
