Frozen Hot Chocolate

  • Total Time: 5 minute
  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings 1x


Rich, chocolatey, and frosty, this Frozen Hot Chocolate is ridiculously good and so simple to make! Some might think it’s only for summertime, but we love it year round!


  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa (I use Hershey’s)
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (Mexican vanilla is the best to use)
  • 5 to 6 cups ice
  • 1 cup whipping cream, sweetened and whipped


  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together sugar and cocoa until smooth and no lumps remain. Add cream and half-and-half a and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  2. Let mixture cool completely. *While mixture is cooling, I like to whip the cream and stick in in the fridge until I’m ready to use it.
  3. In the container of a blender combine 1 cup of the cocoa mixture and 1 to 1/14 cups ice. Cover and mix until well blended. Pour into glasses and serve. Repeat with remaining cocoa mixture and ice.
