This is a great drink for any time of the year! In the winter, it can bring you the great taste of hot chocolate and the feeling of a nice warm day. In the summer, you can cool off with this refreshment and still get the same hot chocolate taste that normally only comes in the winter. This was derived from my own original hot chocolate recipe, which is the best that I know. However, I will make this drink even more! Top with whipped cream.

However I didn't think the ratio of ice cream to liquid was quite right. I ended up doubling the ice cream and it was the perfect consistency. Read More
