It's famous, it's infamous, it's notorious. It has destroyed diets and led to love affairs. Marriages have been proposed over it, it has sparked romance, there's even a movie about it… yes, this delicious combination of chocolate can drive you crazy! Living in Las Vegas, I consider visiting Serendipity a real treat..now, you can enjoy this yumminess at home!
Supposedly, this IS the famous Serendipity recipe, if it’s not, it’s sure darn close to the real deal! Either way, your taste buds will be thanking me!
6 half-ounce pieces of a variety of your favorite chocolates *variety is the key, the more chocolate the better
2 teaspoons store bought hot chocolate mix (I like Ghirardelli’s)
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups milk (use the whole milk…trust me)
3 cups ice
Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place it in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring occasionally until melted. Add the cocoa and sugar, stirring constantly until thoroughly blended. Remove from heat and slowly add 1/2 cup of the milk and stir 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. Enjoy with a spoon or a straw. . . .or both!
