"Hot cocoa that freezes your taste buds! A terrific snack for hot days, with a wintry twist. For variety, use chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla, and use chocolate chips as a garnish after blending."

1 1/2 scoops
vanilla ice cream
1 1/2 cups
instant hot chocolate mix
chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed
I used chocolate creme sandwich cookies and chocolate ice cream. The results were tasty, but far too "liquidy". Perhaps more ice cream could be used to thicken it.
Uh...isn't this just a...milkshake?? That's what it's called where I come from. Too much milk as written - makes it way too liquid. Cut milk back by about half and you should have just about the right texture...for either a milkshake or a "smoothie."
This was kind of a disaster. I think if I were to play with the recipe, it could be good but as is.......noone liked it.
I used frozen light fat-free cool whip,
non-fat milk and splenda to make this healthier.
It worked and was pretty delicious!
Great tasting recipe, although I made a few minor adjustments due to what I had on hand. I subbed dutch pressed cocoa powder for instant hot cocoa mix since I don't buy instant hot cocoa. Also I reduced the milk to 1 cup because I didn't want it to be too liquid like and I increased the whipped cream to 1/2 cup. I used homemade vanilla ice cream and homemade whipped cream in this recipe instead of store bought. It served two and had excellent flavor. Great to dip Oreo cookies into just as you would with a glass of milk. By looking at the ingredients this is more of a liquid milkshake than a smoothie.
The recipe wasn't bad, but it also wasn't a "smoothie" either. It tasted more like really cold malted milk. However, it did taste better than I expected. I did 1/2 the recipe and it filled a sundae style glass. I used half and half in replace of the little bit of whipping cream. After I mixed it I realized the recipe called for cookies. I didn't add them, but it wouldn't have changed the texture of the milk part. I topped with chocolate whipped cream and garnished it with chocolate sprinkles.
Oh man! I'm sipping this now enjoying this treat. My husband asked for one too after seeing mine. Great way to use up hot cocoa mix I had sitting in the pantry. I didn't have whipped cream so I used whipped topping and it was still great. Thanks for the recipe!
