I found this recipe on the Real Simple web site and made a couple of changes.

This is too good to have every day but I wish I could.

3 cups whole milk

1/2 cup heavy cream

3 ounces dark or semi-sweet chocolate

3/4 cup chocolate malted milk powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups ice

whipped cream

chocolate shavings for a topping

Put the milk in a saucepan with the chocolate and heat on medium high until the chocolate has melted.

Add the cream, vanilla and malted milk powder.

Stir till it is hot.

Pour into a mug and top with the whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

If you want it frozen like the best slush you have ever had follow the next steps.

Let the chocolate mixture cool.

Place in a blender and add the ice.

Blend till it is smooth and serve in a glass with a straw.

Of corse we have to top it with whipped cream and chocolate.

Hot or cold this is delicious.

In the Real Simple recipe the milk was much less but I thought it was too sweet.

If you want it sweeter decrease the milk especially if you are going to freeze it.
