Godiva Frozen Hot Chocolate

4 cups whole milk
12 tablespoons Godiva Classic Milk Chocolate Cocoa *
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Warm the milk in a small pot over a medium flame. Stir in the cocoa and whisk constantly. Do not boil.

Remove from the stove and cover with foil. Let cool for 15 minutes.

Pour the hot cocoa mixture in to ice cube trays or a metal bowl. Freeze. Remove the chocolaty mixture from the freezer and allow to soften for approximately 20 minutes. Drop the slushy cubes or chunks into a blender. Pulse intermittently until smooth and slightly icy. You may have to add a little fresh milk to help with the process.

Immediately pour into a large glass bowl. Top with fresh whipped cream and milk chocolate shavings. Sink a straw in for everyone at your table. Sip and enjoy!
