I don't know why this isn't popular yet.
It's rich. Creamy. Dreamy. It will blow your mind.
I love making this. You will too, if you give it a chance.
I came upon it kinda by accident while trying to cool off a very, very hot cup of hot cocoa. It had burned my tongue, the roof of my mouth, and was thinking about my fingers next when I finally started looking for a solution. There was ice cream in the freezer. Ice cream is cold. Cold things can cool down hot things. It seemed logical so I dropped a spoonful of ice cream in. It melted into a velvety layer, and brought the drink down to a decent temperature. And I've been doing it ever since.
Switch the ice cream flavors up, you don't have to stick with double chocolate. Try something minty. Mint + chocolate is very tasty.
One of these days I'll also give you my recipes for hot cocoa. Remind me.
Hot Cocoa Float
1 mug of hot cocoa

Make the hot cocoa very hot. Pour into a mug and top with ice cream to taste. Drink.
