  • 1/4 C unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 C water
  • 2 C Whole milk
  • 1 C heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla or 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 peppermint or other extract


To make in the ice cream maker

  • Mix the dry ingredients in a medium saucepan.
  • Add the water, whisk and cook over medium high heat until it boils.
  • Let it boil for 1 min then add the milk, cream and vanilla and stir well.
  • Pour into a glass container and refrigerate until cool
  • Stir it well again and pour it into the ice cream maker and turn it on.
  • Leave it until it's the right consistency (about 30 mins I've found)
  • Top with whipped cream and serve!

To make in a blender

  • Follow instructions 1-4 above, BUT cut the milk and cream in half - so it will be a more concentrated hot chocolate mixture
  • Pour into a blender along with 3 cups of ice and blend until slushy
  • Top with whipped cream and serve again!
