1/3 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
6 oz bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
whipped cream (optional)
chocolate shavings (optional)
The recipe for frozen hot chocolate served at Serendipity 3 in New York City was once so carefully guarded that the owners turned down a request for it from Jacqueline Kennedy, who wanted to serve it at the white house.
