The Frozen Hot Chocolate is a must-have at Serendipity, the base is a partially frozen hot chocolate and in the middle of the gigantic parfait bowl is a huge dollop of sweetened, indulgent whipped cream. Top it all with chocolate shavings and let it drip over the edges, and you have a chocoholic's dream. You can order the mix directly from Serendipity's website and make it at home....or you can do what I did and used my favorite recipe search engine, Recipe Puppy!
