Delicious. ‘Nough said.

Serendipity’s Frozen Hot Chocolate

  • 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. hot cocoa mix
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter

  • 12 ounces evaporated milk, divided
  • 4 1/2 c. ice
  • Whipped cream, to taste
  • Mini marshmallows, to taste

Combine first 3 ingredients in a double boiler that is set over gently boiling water (or just use two different sized pans and hold the smaller pan on top of the larger one). Stir until melted and a smooth mixture forms. Add semi-sweet and white chocolate chips and stir. While chips melt, slowly add 1/2 c. of evaporated milk. Stir until smooth and then cool to room temperature. Combine the chocolate mixture, the rest of the evaporated milk, and the ice in the blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and top with whipped cream, marshmallows, chocolate chips, etc. Makes 4 servings.


Grilled Bruschetta Chicken

Grilled Bruschetta Chicken
This is a simple healthy recipe if you are good at grilling chicken. It was my first time grilling chicken myself, so I am sure I can use some more practice.

*** Recipe requires an overnight marinade

4 small boneless chicken breasts
1/2 C sun-dried tomato salad dressing
2 tomatos finely chopped
1/2 C part-skim mozzarella cheese (I recommend shredded)
1/4 C fresh chopped basil or 1 Tsp dired basil

Place chicken (I recommend slicing them smaller) in resealable plastic bag. Add 1/4 cup dressing and seal bag. Turn bag over several times to evenly coat chicken with dressing. Refrigerate 10 minutes (I marinate it all day if I remember in time). Remove chicken from bag; discard bag and dressing.

Grill chicken for about 6 minutes. Meanwhile, combine remaining 1/4 dressing, tomatoes, cheese and basil. Turn the chicken over and place cooked-side up, on the grill. Top with tomato mixture. Close lid. Grill 8 minutes or until chicken is done.

*Can add a splash of balsalmic vinegar to give it a bit more zip.

Homemade Chocolate Poptart
2 Frozen Pie Crust
Melted Symphony Bar

Defrost the pie crust, fork the edges, and pierce the center. Add chunks of the candy bar to the pie crust and fold the pie crust around so it looks like a poptart. Bake according to pie crust instructions. Meanwhile put the rest of your candy bar in a ziplock bag. Melt your candy bar in the microwave. Cut the edge of the bag and drizzle it on the pie crust. Voila! And Enjoy!
