I’m so ready for cooler weather and flavors like pumpkin, cinnamon, and hot chocolate. There’s just no way for me to enjoy hot chocolate right now. The weather is hot and humid here in S.C. and there’s no sign of cooler weather for many months. I’m sure I’ll still be wearing shorts and a t-shirt at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s definitely been known to happen. With all the summer heat, I’ve been looking for ways to keep cool. I even did the ALS ice bucket challenge so I could get a little relief from the heat (don’t worry I donated also). I think this Frozen Hot Chocolate is a really nice way to enjoy the flavors of hot chocolate without any of the heat. Nice and refreshing on a hot day!
