This cold drink is like a lighter version of a chocolate milkshake. In this video, you’ll see how to make chocolate egg cream, a favorite New York City soda fountain drink starring chocolate syrup, cold milk, seltzer water, and absolutely no egg! (No cream either.) Why is it called “egg” cream? Possibly because it has a frothy head that looks like a cocktail shaken with egg whites. But who knows? Be sure to have bendy straws for this one. Get the recipe for Chef John's Chocolate Egg Cream.

I used chocolate fudge instead of syrup. It came out very rich. Very good!
