Equipment needed for this hot chocolate freeze:
- Blender I like to use my large blender to blend up all the ingredients that are needed for this hot chocolate freeze or frozen hot chocolate. A blender is nice to have for more than just drinks and works well for making sauces, pureed foods and more.
- Measuring cups A wet measuring cup with a pour spout is needed to accurately measure out the milk, heavy cream and Hershey’s chocolate syrup needed in this recipe.
- Measuring spoons I like to have a set of measuring spoons on hand for measuring out ingredients. Sometimes I’ll just use a teaspoon or tablespoon from my silverware drawer, but have found they do run bigger in measurement than the measuring spoon sets do.
- Ice cube trays If you wish to make some cold brew ice cubes to toss into this hot chocolate freeze, or even if you don’t have an ice machine attached to your freezer, then having ice cube trays are a must have item for your kitchen.
- Glass cups Nice glass cups make serving this frozen hot chocolate, to guests or your family, even more special!
