Notes

*I often do this step ahead of time, then place the chocolate milk into the refrigerator to cool. This helps keep the frozen hot chocolate as cold as possible. If you do this step, stir the chocolate milk before you add it to the blender because some chocolate will settle at the bottom of the cup.
