Frozen Hot Chocolate
September is the month that bridges us from summer to fall. Temperatures are starting to cool, but we haven’t started to see chilly mornings yet. For some reason I think of cherries in September. We live near a town called Mt. Hood that has several cherry farms. You can find everything from sweet cherries to tart cherries – and more.
We picked up some dark sweet cherries a few weeks ago. We ate a bunch of them, but I also was able to freeze a few bags for late night sweet-attacks. Cherries are not only good for snacking on, they also make amazing shakes, smoothies, and are super tasty in Frozen Hot Chocolate.
Cherries are packed with healthy vitamins. You’re not only enjoying a treat, your fueling your body with much needed vitamins. My family prefers cherries dipped in chocolate over cherry pie. I like them both, but cherry pie is my favorite fruit pie.
When we dip cherries in chocolate, we use Enjoy Life Foods Mega Chunks. They are allergy-friendly and they melt well. You can use your favorite chocolate chips or chopped chocolate for this frozen hot chocolate recipe.
