Frozen hot chocolate has always confused me. I thought it was just a chocolate milkshake with a fancy name and I couldn’t figure out why everyone went crazy over them. So when Nicole and I decided on a chocolate theme for this week, I knew I had to make one.

It is so not just a chocolate milkshake! I used a salted caramel hot chocolate mix and it tasted just like a salted caramel hot chocolate… but frozen. Amazing how that works, right? I was so excited with how it turned out and it really couldn’t be easier. If you have hot chocolate mix and some milk, you can make this.

Nicole made a hot chocolate mix which would be perfect for this! Just use 1.25 ounces of the mix in place of the packaged one!
