Frozen Hot Chocolate ::: Project Pinterest

Things are moving slowly over here folks.  Which is not a good thing.  Although I have been pseudo-following the rules of project pinterest for a couple of months, it has only been about a week since I began posting on Project Pinterest so I kind of need this motivation even more--to keep me going on my list of "fun things to try".  I have to keep in mind that project pinterest shouldn't be a daunting task.  Projects and Recipes are really fun to try and PP will do the job at keeping me accountable for trying new things consistently.

This week I'll highlight the Frozen Hot Chocolate treat.  

I've always wanted to go NYC's Serendipity where they serve up the nations most famous frozen hot chocolate so when I saw these on Pinterest I thought I'd give it a try!  

We put the kids to bed early and I quickly made a batch so Tom and I could enjoy them outside on our patio with a game of cards.

The recipe calls for a can of evaporated milk and I thought, "I have that!".  But it turns out I had sweetened condensed milk at home.  I still gave it a try despite that and it turned out okay.  It was entirely too sweet for us.  I had a hard time drinking a fourth of the glass.

I know it was probably from milk switcheroo that it turned out too sweet but I'm sort of turned off by the concept now and don't think that I'll try it again.  I think I'll just wait until I take that long awaited trip to Serendipity to try Frozen Hot Chocolate again! ;)
