Guest Blogger Friday {#6}

Hello, My Happy Place readers! I’m Shatzi and I blog over at Love and Laundry.  I’m a stay at home mom of three awesome kiddos and I love learning and experimenting with new things.  My favorite things are sewing, cooking, crafting and reading. I blog all about what I’m up to.   Here are some of the things I’ve been doing lately:

I’m so glad Sophie let me join you today. I love her blog – she is really inspiring to so many people. And I love her recipes! Especially her single serve desserts (who wouldn’t love a single serving of deep dish chocolate chip cookie? YUM!!)

If there is one thing I love, it’s chocolate.  Most of the time, if I have to choose between chocolate and something else, chocolate wins.  One of my favorite ways to have chocolate is a cup full of steamy hot chocolate on a cold winter night.  But it’s summer now and that won’t do.  So, today I’m going to share with you one of my new favorite summer dessert drinks. Frozen Hot Chocolate!

About a month ago, I took my kids to Dairy Queen for lunch.  I noticed that they had a frozen hot chocolate on the menu, so I had to try it.  It was yummy!  So good that I almost wished I never discovered it. I knew that my wallet was doomed to shrink to nothing by the end of the summer just from buying frozen hot chocolates.  That would never do, so I sought out to make an equally wonderful version at home.  In my opinion, this is way better than the DQ version. This recipe is really pretty fast and easy.  And a huge hit with my kids!

Here’s what you need:

frozen hot chocolate ingredients

3 squares of bakers chocolate (or 3 oz of chocolate chips)
2 teaspoons of cocoa (I haven’t tried it, but I’m sure you could substitute hot chocolate mix)
1/4 cup of sugar
2 cups of milk
About 3–4 cups of ice
{This recipe serves about 4-5 people}

First, melt the chocolate squares in the milk on low heat. When the chocolate starts to melt, add the sugar and stir well.

After all of the chocolate is melted and it looks smooth, remove from the heat and let it cool down. 

After it’s cooled off, pour the chocolate and milk into a blender. Add the ice and cocoa powder and blend.

And that’s it! Super easy and super delicious! It’s a perfect summer time treat without heating up the house.  And now I can enjoy the yumminess of hot chocolate all year long!

Thank you, Sophie, for letting me hang out here today.
