Frozen Hot Chocolate

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high. If your frozen slush looks more like slush, slowly add more ice.

When a thick stage is reached, pour into a grapefruit bowl [or similar serving container of your choice] and top with a mound of whipped cream, sprinkle with grated chocolate. Insert two straws for sipping and serve with an iced-tea spoon for devouring.
