How to Make It

Step 1

Set four tall glasses in the freezer to chill.

Step 2

Melt chocolate in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, just until completely melted. Remove from heat. Stir in cocoa and granulated sugar to blend.

Step 3

Slowly stream in 1/2 cup milk, whisking constantly. If chocolate begins to seize up, return saucepan to low heat, whisking again until melted.

Step 4

Off of heat, stir in remaining 1 cup milk and the rum. If needed, chill mixture in freezer about 15 minutes until cold (this prevents separation when blending with ice).

Step 5

In a bowl with a mixer, beat cream and powdered sugar to medium peaks.

Step 6

Put ice and chocolate mixture in a blender and whirl until smooth but still icy. Pour into chilled glasses and top with whipped cream and shaved chocolate.

Step 7

* To shave, set chocolate on a piece of waxed paper and microwave until slightly warm, 10 to 15 seconds, then shave with a vegetable peeler.
