Although there's a bit of ice cream in this recipe, the ice makes it lighter and less rich than a typical milkshake. To keep the syrup visible on the sides of the glass, put the glass in the freezer up to 30 minutes before adding the syrup.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 2 cups premium vanilla ice cream
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Garnishes: whipped cream, shaved chocolate

How to Make It

  1. Combine milk and sugar in a small saucepan, and cook over medium heat, stirring often, 3 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Remove pan from heat, and add chocolate and cocoa powder. Let stand 5 minutes; whisk until smooth. Let cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes.

  2. Combine ice cubes, milk mixture, and ice cream in a blender, and process until smooth and slushy. Pour chocolate syrup down the insides of 4 glasses; pour in iced chocolate. Garnish, if desired.
