Frozen Hot Chocolate

“I can resist anything except temptation.” Oscar Wilde

As an English major in college and an English teacher these past 12 years, I have read my fair share of great classic literature.  Oscar Wilde wrote my favorite play, The Importance of Being Earnest, and if you have not read it, I suggest you do.  I dare you to not laugh out loud as you read this!  (Don’t ask me about the movie adaptation as I haven’t seen it.  This is mainly do to the fact that I may not like it and then it will forever taint my view of this beloved play. Please tell me this isn’t weird.)

This quote is not from that play, but every time I read it I laugh.  Out loud.  And quite honestly, I can resist many things, but this dessert…Nope. Nada. Negative Ghostwriter.  I have been making this for 6 years now, and every time I offer it to others, they can’t resist it either.

The best way to describe this dessert is that it is a cross between a slushie and a milkshake.  I make it in summer; I make it in winter. I make it when I have have a craving for chocolate; I make it just because.  And you should too. Enjoy! xoxo
