Recipe: Frozen Hot Chocolate

I don't know anyone who loves milk more than I do.  We go through gallons a week and in the winter time even more because I love hot chocolate.  Seriously, I probably drink one every night once it starts to get cold.  When I was browsing pinterest and found this recipe and I just had to try it.  Why not have hot chocolate in the summer? 
When I first tried the recipe it wasn't sweet enough for us [or ice-y enough] so I altered the original recipe and added more chocolate chips and ice.  Below is the how to for two large glasses:

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons of sugar
1 package of hot cocoa mix [about 3 tbsp]
2 tbsp of butter
1 cup of chocolate chips
3/4 cup of white chocolate chips
12 ounces, fluid can evaporated milk divided
5 cups of ice
whip cream

Combine the sugar, cocoa mix, and butter in double boiler and stir often until melted and a smooth paste forms.  Add chocolate and white chocolate chips and stir.  When the chips begin to melt, slowly stir in 1/2 cup of the evaporated milk.  Stir until smooth and let it cool.

Place the chocolate-y goodness mixture, the rest of the evaporated milk, and ice in the blender and let it rip.  Blend until smooth, pour into glasses and top with a sky high pile of whip cream.

It is really good and it surprisingly tastes just like hot chocolate, except cold and sort of like a shake.  A recipe worth trying and one that is in our family cook book.
