Since I got out the magazine for the info on tempering chocolate I found a few recipes that I thought I would share. This one should be perfect right now with the heat wave we all seem to be having.

Since I got out the magazine for the info on tempering chocolate I found a few recipes that I thought I would share.
This one should be perfect right now with the heat wave we all seem to be having.

Chocolate Ice Cubes
1 Cup milk
1/4 Cup water
1 Tb unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp sugar
3/4 Cup semi sweet chocolate chips (or dark chips)
In a small saucepan bring all ingredients to a boil.  Whisk until all lumps dissolve.  Remove from heat and add chocolate chips and stir until chocolate chips melt.  Let cool for 5 minutes.  Pour into ice cube trays and freeze.


I think these would be great in an iced coffee.

In the photo in the magazine they do show the cubes in a glass and they are pouring milk into the glass.
I think these would also be a great way to make a milk shake without the ice cream.

Love this.  I can't wait to try them.  I am thinking a smoothie with coffee, bailey's and these ice cubes.  Thanks Nikki!

Nikki, thanks for sharing the recipe.  I agree, I think this would be great in iced coffee.

Unfortunately, I do not have any of the old ice cube trays since I have the new refrigerator that just spits cubes out the door.  Guess I will need to look for some trays when I get in the stores.
 
Any other suggestion of something small, ice cube size, that this could be frozen in?

i'm in the same position w/ no wish to buy any more-------i dislike them intensely----do you have any candy molds,       popsicle molds          or even the small mini-cupcake pans
you can buy 2 or 3 ice trays for a dollar at any of the 99/dollar stores
if i were going to make them---------i would go to sam's and buy the 1 or 2 oz condiment cups along with a sleeve of lids so that they would not pick up other flavors in the freezer-------------plus, once frozen you could keep them in a freezer bag for use--------------they can also be washed and re-used 

actually i wouldn't go to sams----------i have a wholesale candy/cigarette store on the way to my dr office that sells individual sleeves instead of cases------------and they sell to the public

Hi LORI G;
GRANA here;
Try looking for those old ice cube trays inTHRIFT STORES: Salvation army;ARMY Goodwill,St vincent dePaul or in some churches?!
I often ten find OLD HOUSEHOLD GADGETS for $.25 in those places.
In a pinch a plastic egg ray mightdo?(equal size indentations for eggs, would  make a different sized ice cube; yard sales, maybe? ;
Good luck finding them!Smile

Line a mini muffin tin with plastic wrap.  Pour the mixture into the muffin tin.  Freeze then pop the little chocolate muffins out and put in a zip top bag.
I made this last night and froze it in a gallon freezer bag.  It is thin enough to break the mixture into chunks but they are uneven so I will do the muffin tin next time. 
I tossed several chunks into the blender with some skim milk and a frozen banana and had a great chocolate banana milk shake.

Sound like great ideas.  Thanks Nikki!  I should try that and mix them in with my smoothies.  Can't go wrong with chocolate in everything lol.
