Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater (pronounced "steve-otter") inspired all kinds of tasty frozen treats. This recipe for frozen hot chocolate tastes like a gourmet Frosty(you know-from Wendy's restaurant). I think it fits: the dessert is icy cold like the milieu of Shiver, but has a hot premise, like the book. Enjoy!
6 pieces (1/2-ounce) chocolate (I used Dove dark chocolate)
2 teaspoons store-bought hot chocolate mix (I used Steven's Gourmet Hot Cocoa)
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
3 cups ice
Whipped cream (I used lite cool whip, I think it will cancel out the rest of the calories)
Chop the chocolate into small pieces. Place it in the top of a double boiler over simmering water (I melted this in the microwave instead. It turned out ok, but a little grainy). Stir occasionally until melted. Add the hot chocolate mix and sugar. Stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and slowly add ½ cup of milk until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
In a blender, place the remaining cup of milk, the room-temperature chocolate mixture and the ice. Blend on high speed until smooth and the consistency of a frozen daiquiri. Pour into a giant goblet and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
