While in college, I visited New York and we went to the famous cafe, Serendipity. They are most famous for their Frozen Hot Chocolate dessert. I bought the cook book while I was there and have made them once or twice since. I decided this would be the perfect dessert for our Heart breakers party. They were just as good as I remembered. Make them for your sweetie on Valentines Day!

In a double boiler (I don't have one) slowly melt chocolates until smooth.
Stir in hot coco mix and sugar. Stir until blended and remove from heat.
Whip milk into chocolate mix.
Stir until blended.
Blend chocolate mix and ice together until smooth.
Spoon into pretty glasses! (I made this recipe time 1 1/3 so it would make enough for 3 glasses)
