Tatamagouche Ice Creamery Melted Ice Cream Hot Chocolate

This unique twist on a classic is perfect for any hot chocolate lover. Featuring Tatamagouche Ice Creamery ice cream, it’s creamy, decadent and sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.


Serves 2

500 ml Tatamagouche Ice Creamery Very Vanilla ice cream, softened*
2 cups Milk
1 cup Cocoa powder
1/2 cup Sugar
1 tbsp Espresso or strong coffee
Pinch of sea salt
Marshmallows (bonus points for homemade)
Chocolate shavings


  1. Remove ice cream from freezer and let soften at room temperature for 10-15 minutes.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk together milk, sugar and salt until dissolved (approximately 3 minutes).
  3. Whisk in cocoa powder until fully incorporated.
  4. Add ice cream and continue cooking over medium heat, continuing to whisk, until mixture is hot.
  5. Add a tablespoon of espresso or strong coffee. This will be enough to amplify the chocolate flavours without tasting like coffee.
  6. Pour into mugs and garnish with marshmallows and chocolate shavings.

*Very Vanilla helps the chocolate flavour pop while also rounding it out. Try going full-blown chocolate by substituting with Tatamagouche Ice Creamery’s Chocolate Moose ice cream or add a touch of Canadians with their Salted Maple.
