Frozen Pecan Pie Hot Chocolate Recipe

Part hot chocolate, part milkshake, part pecan pie, this incredible drink is almost too good to be true. Combine your favorite brand of butter pecan ice cream with whole milk, instant cocoa mix, cane syrup, and toasted pecans to make a rich, creamy, frozen take on hot chocolate. Most people would stop there and simply add a straw, but we took this dessert even further by drizzling the insides of each glass with chocolate syrup and topping each serving with crispy shards of golden piecrust "cookies". (To make, simply bake store-bought refrigerated piecrusts until brown and crisp and break into large pieces.) Top each serving with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream and more chopped toasted pecans. Like any milkshake, be sure to serve this frozen hot chocolate right away so it does not melt. We recommend straws and spoons so you can enjoy every last delicious drop. Whether you're enjoying this drink in the winter or summer, you'll be glad you tried it.

3-D Hot Chocolate

This hot chocolate is dark, decadent, and delicious, but it gets its name from three "D" ingredients: dark chocolate, dulce de leche, and Drambuie liqueur (scotch whiskey flavored with honey and spices).
