Dairy Queen’s Frozen Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate is the most amazing beverage to ever pass through my lips. That’s a bold statement, but it’s true. DQ’s FPBHC strikes the perfect balance of icy to creamy and manages a perfect blend of peanut butter to chocolate. I’ve tried Serendipity3‘s famous frozen hot chocolate several times and I can honestly say that DQ’s version is better. As promised, I continued to obsess about it until I tried to remake it at home.
I’m not going to claim that my version is as good as the original, but it is good. And it does have fewer calories and fat grams for a larger serving.
I highly encourage you to try mine out, but I still think you should make a summer pit-stop at Dairy Queen.
Frozen Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate; yields 1 large serving
- 1.5 Tbsp good quality unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
- 3/4 cup skim milk
- 1/4 cup fat-free sweetened condensed milk
- Heat 1 cup water for 90 seconds in the microwave (or to a simmer if you’re using the stove top). Whisk cocoa powder into water until fully dissolved. Let cool 10 – 15 minutes. Pour unsweetened hot chocolate into an ice-cube tray and freeze for a minimum of 4 hours. You should get 5 – 7 cubes depending on the size of your tray.
- Place frozen cocoa cubes into your blender. Add the remaining ingredients and blend on high until smooth.
Have you been to DQ yet this summer? Have you ever tried frozen hot chocolate?
