Serendipity 3’s Frrrozen Hot Chocolate

If you don’t mind long lines or mingling with tourists, put Serendipity 3 on your list of places to visit. Their Frrrozen Hot Chocolate is over the top and always a hit among kids. Part milkshake, part slushy, it blends 14 different kinds of cocoa. It’s also served in a bowl that is big enough for the runt’s whole gang (and, of course, one hungry parent). Don’t have the patience to wait for a table? Order the mix online and make it at home.
