Dunkin Donuts Frozen Chocolate Flavors
What I love about ordering drinks at Dunkin is that they have some flavor shots and flavor swirls available to customize your drinks.
If you’ve never heard about them before you are missing big time because they are amazing.
A flavor shot is a water-like addition that adds some extra flavor to your drink. I usually prefer flavor shots for water based drinks like a regular black coffee or a tea.
A flavor swirl on the other hand has a syrup like consistency. It usually has some milk or cream added and also some sugar so it’s better for mixed drinks or milk based drinks like this frozen hot chocolate.
You can get flavor shots or flavor swirls at a variety of different flavors like mocha or peppermint or French vanilla, so that menas you can get a:
- Peppermint frozen hot chocolate
- Mocha frozen hot chocolate
- French vanilla
You can also request it with whipped cream and sprinkles (and we all know that whipped topping and sprinkles make any drink better).
What ingredients you need to make a copycat Dunkin frozen hot chocolate
What I love so much about this recipe is that you only need a handful of easy to find ingredients.
Hot cocoa mix
This is the star of this recipe! The hot cocoa mix is what makes this hot chocolate a hot chocolate and it’s also what gives it all that chocolaty and creamy flavor.
I like to boost the chocolate flavor by adding some chocolate syrup to the mix. It’s also what gives it the sweetness. My only advice is using a good quality chocolate syrup.
Use any milk you like. I used whole milk because I like to make my frozen hot chocolate as creamy and indulgent as possible but you can also use skimmed milk, almost milk or oat milk.
A good frozen hot chocolate needs a lot of ice!
You can also add some vanilla extract or some caramel syrup if you want to customize the flavors like at Dunkin.
