Baby it is hot out there... I know, I know it wasn't long ago that I was complaining about all the snow that we have, but it is hot out there! I have never been one to enjoy the heat. At least in the winter you can pile on more and more clothes but you can only take off so much and if you are a blob like me, I know that I wouldn't want to see me in a bikini so I would not submit you to it.
Good news.... I have found the perfect way to cool off. This spring I went to a Dove Chocolate Tasting Party and then last month I hosted a party and got some way cool stuff to cook, bake and experiment with. If you have a chance to go to a party or else have a party yourself ~ Do it!
My first drink is all about strawberries, raspberries and chocolate... Sorry for the long name but I did want to get in that this is a non-alcoholic drink.
Strawberry Raspberry White Chocolate Virgin Daiquiri
This recipe is basically what it says on the package plus a little bit extra. I also had to add strawberries as I had no raspberries in the house, but I think the combination tastes wonderful.
7 oz lemon- lime soda
1 cup ice
1/2 cup fresh strawberries ( you could use frozen)
1 square Chef- Series Chocolate (milk Chocolate) melted
whipped cream for garnish (homemade or from the can)
Add daiquiri mix, lemon-lime soda, ice, and strawberries in a blender. Blend until smooth.
Melt chocolate. Add 1/2 the chocolate mix to blender and blend well. Chocolate will harden once hits drink, so add a little at a time and blend.
Pour into glass. Makes one 16 oz drink or two 8 oz drinks if you would like to share. Garnish with whipped cream and drizzle the rest of the chocolate over the whipped cream.
Perfect for these warm days.
Just be careful as the chocolate bits may plug up your straw. You may want to eat this delicious drink with a spoon so you get all the yummy smooth Dove Chocolate.
Keep a watch out for my next drink... It has mangoes in it and chocolate.
