Enjoy a decadent dessert with these Amaretto Ice Cream Hot Chocolate Floats! I know I loved them! from #DietersDownfallThis was a first for me. I’ve seen hot chocolate floats online before, but honestly thought it was kinda silly. Who pours HOT chocolate over FROZEN ice cream? Doesn’t that just defeat the purpose of either treat?

The simple answer is no. The ice cream didn’t immediately melt and the hot chocolate stayed warm. It’s crazy, but it’s true.

Real Hot chocolate. Made with cream, milk, and chocolate. It's so good, who needs all that extra For this hot chocolate recipe, I wanted to use REAL chocolate and REAL milk. No sweetened condensed milk, no cocoa powder, no added stuff – just milk and chocolate. And that’s just what I did.

Heavy cream and whole milk make a wonderful rich texture and the straight dark chocolate gave it a strong chocolate flavor. The flavor was intense to drink straight,  but that was kinda the point. Pouring it over the sweet ice cream and adding sweetened whip cream cuts the slightly bitter flavor and tastes like real sipping chocolate. The kids may not like it, and that’s a good thing!
