Hot Chocolate Ice Cream Float

Last year my son begged me to buy the super-duper-extra-mega box of cocoa at the warehouse club. I did. I thought that there was absolutely no way we could go through the box in one teeny, tiny winter. Wrong! By the end of the season, the box was empty. I don’t drink coffee, so I turn to hot chocolate as a substitute. That said, I’m always trying to jazz it up a bit. So….

Take the root beer float for a twist and throw in a holiday feel. What better way to warm up a chilly winter day than with a cup of cocoa? Ok, so this one also has a cool down factor too. The hot chocolate ice cream float makes the most of both worlds. The ice cream adds a frothy vanilla flavor to the cocoa as well as a playful feel.  Add a touch of graham and make the dessert into a drinkable version of the campfire classic – s’mores!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Hot chocolate mix – You can use the instant kind or make the milk-based version.

·        Vanilla ice cream

·        Graham crackers

·        Red and green sugar crystals

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Crumble a graham cracker into a bowl. Use your hands or the back of a spoon to make the graham into what looks like a pile of coarse sand.

2.      Make a cup of cocoa. You can do this on the stove or in the microwave. Don’t fill the cup all of the way up. Leave about one-fourth empty, for the ice cream.

3.      Spoon a scoop of ice cream into the cup.

4.     Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbles and sugar crystals on top.
