Longing for a glass of something icy cold this summer? Or maybe a scoop of ice cream? Have both in one glass with this unusual treat — vanilla-flavored milk with chocolate "ice cubes" that slowly melt and swirl into the milk.
It has the sweet creaminess of ice cream, and the icy cold quality we are looking for in the summertime. It's sort of like hot chocolate, but for the summer.
The chocolate ice is especially interesting — it's not just frozen chocolate, but a mix of milk, instant coffee, chocolate, and sugar. It freezes into icy little cubes of chocolate, perfect for swirling into cold milk or even iced coffee.
