Established in 1954, SERENDIPITY 3 is a New York institution best known for its decadent desserts, particularly its infamous Frozen Hot Chocolate!
The chocoholic dessert-drink made even-more popular by Jonh Cusack's movie (with Kate Beckinsale) with the same title has tickled my fancy, thus I'm sharing with you an easy to make, home-version (not to mention tummy-friendly) of this masterpiece. Come to think of it, the timing is simply apt with "heart's day" just around the corner.
