A creamy, easy ice cream recipe, this one means you can get your cocoa fix all year long, whatever the season. Our No Churn Frozen Hot Chocolate Ice Cream is the warm weather counter part of your favorite Winter treat.
This post and recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.
We love hot chocolate. It’s a serious Winter staple in our pantry.
If we happpen to run out of it, it’s a real-life crisis around here. No movie is complete without Dad brewing a big old pot of the chocolate good-stuff.
Just because the weather gets hotter in the middle of the year, well that doesn’t mean we still don’t crave a big old batch of the good chocolate-y stuff.
In case it wasn’t already clear, we do.
There’s still a bit of a conundrum though because, well, it is hot outside.
Most people don’t crave hot things when it’s hot outside. Especially not a hot drink.
Creamy cocoa is delicious, and while it’s comforting in the cold weather- it’s not exactly refreshing when the daily temps are over 95+ outside each day.
Thankfully, we’ve found a way to get our fix all year long. When the weather warms up, we cool our hot chocolate down and turn it into a creamy dessert.
We lovingly call it Frozen Hot Chocolate Ice Cream.
Rich, creamy ice cream that tastes just like your favorite hot chocolate AND that doesn’t require a churn? That’s a win in my kitchen play book any day.
Studded with mini marshmallows, this Frozen Hot Chocolate Ice Cream version is like a dream by the scoop full.
Don’t miss another sip of your favorite creamy chocolate dessert drink in a cup, ever again, even when the seasons change. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy it cold!
