   This recipe come from www.sandrakavital.blogspot.com . A truely mesmerizing drink!  Why didn't I think of this! Oh so good!  Vanilla milk with chocolate ice cubes, what a concept!

If you follow this blog a little from its infancy, you know that if I'm a fan of the use of chocolate in desserts and pastries as I appreciate the vision of its smoothness once melted, it does not, however, part of my favorite dishes from a standpoint of taste.

But like any rule there is an exception in this case, it takes the form of hot chocolate before whom I have a hard to resist and which is also my favorite winter drink.
In reality, I say "drink winter" but you may know from last year that they are not the seasons that stop me to enjoy this delicacy.
How in these circumstances to resist the call of Chocolate Ice Summer Jean-Paul Hevin seen at Keiko , a simple chocolate milk reinterpreted in a fun and original in the form of ice that melt chocolate gently when mixing with milk deliciously flavored with vanilla.

A delicious idea frankly that you can add your button to raise the chocolate flavor: coffee, pepper, pepper, cinnamon ..  who can stop you?

 (For 4-6 people depending on size of glasses)

Chocolate ice
  •  200ml milk
  •  50ml water
  •  1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  •   1 teaspoon sugar
  •  1 tablespoon instant coffee (optional)
  •   70g dark chocolate (66%)

Milk with Vanilla
  •  600ml milk
  •  60g sugar
  •  1 vanilla pod

For chocolate ice (12 to 14)

 Finely chop chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl.

Pour milk and water in a saucepan, add sugar, cocoa and instant coffee and mix carefully to avoid lumps. Porter à ébullition sur feu moyen puis retirer du feu. Bring to a boil over medium heat then remove from heat.
 Pour mixture over the chocolate, melt 5 minutes then mix gently with a wooden spoon to get a cream smooth and creamy.
 Cool and pour into an ice cube tray and freeze.

For the vanilla milk

Pour milk into a large saucepan, add sugar and stir to dissolve.
 Slit the vanilla pod in the center, scrape the seeds and put them in the pan.
Bring to a boil over medium heat then remove from heat.
Cool, then refrigerate several hours or preferably overnight.

To serve, place ice cubes in glasses of chocolate (depending on size of glasses 3-4 ice) then pour over the cold milk with vanilla.
You can decorate this beverage serving it with whipped cream and chocolate or cigarettes into the gourmet dessert by mixing milk with the vanilla ice cream for a creamy milkshake: Mister Choc Summer, irresistible nugget of Chocolate  . .

Simple and effective!
