Hot Chocolate Floats

Category: Desserts, Chocolate

 Ingredients List

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 cups milk (I used whole milk)
  • 2-3 tbsp brown sugar, to taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch salt
  • 6 oz good-quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 4 oz good-quality milk chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 quart ice cream (vanilla, peppermint, and coffee all work well!)
  • Hot fudge sauce
  • Chocolate shavings or other decorations (optional)


1. Whisk together the cream, milk, 2 tbsp brown sugar, vanilla, and salt in a medium saucepan. Place the pan over medium heat and cook it, whisking occasionally, until it starts to simmer. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the chopped chocolates, stirring until they”™re melted. Carefully taste the mixture and add more sugar, if desired.

2. Place 2-3 scoops of ice cream into mugs. Pour hot chocolate on top of the ice cream, and garnish with whipped cream, fudge sauce, chocolate shavings, or other toppings. Serve with spoons for maximum slurping.
