  2. Blend the milk and cocoa for about 1 minute.
  3. Scoop the ice cream into the blender. Blend it up for about 2 minutes until it's nice and frothy.
  4. Make a garnish for the glass. First, grate the frozen chocolate bar (or crush if using chocolate chips) and place the shavings on a small plate. Then, pour a bit of the shake onto another small plate. Dip the rim of the glass into the shake, then dip it into the chocolate shavings.
  5. Pour the frappé into glasses. Top with whipped cream, a mint leaf, and a few extra chocolate shavings. Mmm . . . enjoy!
