Frozen Hot Chocolate ♥

Hello Friends!  

How are you all doing?!  Mid August already and I can smell Fall in the distance.  It's coming....but not yet.  These last weeks of summer are always my favorite because we are getting closer to my favorite time of year (crunch leaves and cozy sweaters). 

 It's still TBD as to if John will return to school.  We've been told to prepare for it, so that's what I'm doing.  I have mixed feelings that I am trying to sort through regarding the issue, but that's for another post. Today I'd like to talk about something I don't have mixed feeling about.....chocolate. 

One of John's favorite summer treats at Dunkin Donuts is frozen hot chocolate.  A few years ago I found a recipe to make them at home.  I could not believe how simple it was! Ever since, this frozen treat has become a summer staple for us.  We are still in the middle of a heat wave in my corner of the world, so anything cold and frosty sounds good to me! 

Wanna try it?  You'll be glad you did.... 

It's so easy: 

2 cups milk
3 hot cocoa packets
3 cups ice

Mix all in a blender until smooth.

Top with whip cream!

This makes 3-4 servings or cut the recipe in half and make 2 large mugs! 


(good to the last drop : ) 

Speaking of John.....he turns 13 this Sunday!

I can't believe my little boy is going to be a teenager.  How did this happen?!

Unfortunately we can't celebrate the way we normally would, but we will still have a lovely family day....all about him.  There will be cake, ice cream, and lots of love.  Until then I will be cherishing these last few days of NOT being the mom of a teenager : ) 

Happy Wednesday my friends! I hope you all are happy, healthy, and COOL! 


  1. Happy Birthday, John! I can't believe he will be a teenager- I became friends with you when he was just a little boy!! Can't wait to try this frozen hot chocolate- one of Alice's favorite treats is a frozen hot chocolate from the Lindt outlet store in Lee, MA. I'm excited to try this and see if she enjoys it as much.
