Summer Drinks Recipes

While it's never too hot for hot chocolate, there is nothing better than a cool refreshing iced chocolate in the summer months. We have some mouthwatering summer chocolate drink recipes for you to try at home, including a Salted Caramel Iced Chocolate created by our good friend Emmy, aka @the_hotchocoholic.

🌟 Emmy's Iced Chocolate TIP 🌟 … Make your own hot chocolate ice cubes using 50 - 100ml milk and 2 tablespoons of chocolate flakes, to keep your iced chocolate cool through the sipping adventure … this is a far better alternative to water as it will keep your drink creamy and chocolatey! 

We say, make a couple of trays of these delicious hot chocolate ice cubes at a time, and keep them in the freezer ready to use any time you want. 

Salted Caramel Iced Chocolate

Salted Caramel Iced Chocolate

With the weather warming up this is a perfect Summer alternative to keep you cool and hydrated but with the same delicious, smooth and chocolatey taste that we all love from a hot chocolate! 

Ingredients:
- 3/4 pint (425ml) Milk
- 7 Tablespoons Salted Caramel Drinking Chocolate
- Whipped Cream
- Salted Caramel Sauce

Method:
1) Make your hot chocolate iced cubes a couple of hours before serving your iced chocolate. Make a hot chocolate mixture with the flakes and milk (you only need about 50 - 100ml of milk) pour into a tray and freeze.
2) In a separate glass, using 5 tablespoons of the flakes and 2 tablespoons of hot milk, stir the mixture until all of the flakes are melted. You can then pour in the rest of the (cold) milk and stir again.
3) Line your glass with salted caramel sauce and pour in the iced chocolate. Add in several of the chocolate iced cubes and serve with whipped cream and a dash of extra flakes.
