Blake Lively’s Met Gala After-Party: Frozen Hot Chocolate For Two

Sometimes a Monday evening after the Met Gala turns into a sundae evening.

At least it did for Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds, who skipped the exclusive event’s post-parties in favor of a calorie fest at N.Y.C. restaurant and dessert parlor Serendipity 3.

“I ate hot fudge sundaes,” the star told ExtraTV. “That’s what I look forward to [after the gala], because you’re just in a corseted gown all night. Just give me a hot fudge sundae. I went to Serendipity. Frozen hot chocolate, extra peanut butter sauce on the side. I closed that place down!”

The Frrrozen Hot Chocolate, Serendipity’s signature dessert, is basically what you’d get if a hot chocolate and a hot fudge sundae had babies. The chilly treat is made with milk, ice, sugar and a secret blend of 14 types of cocoa, and is sipped through a straw burrowed into a heaping layer of whipped cream.

And, of course, if you’re Lively, you need a little peanut butter sauce on the side — an order we’ll definitely be stealing. We’re just impressed she managed to keep the whipped cream off of her Gucci Première gown.

Indulge with this at-home version of the famous dessert, given to PEOPLE by Serendipity’s chef.

Usually this comment comes up in articles such as this and it is one of those things that never used to bother me, but when I read the title for this, it made my skin crawl.
Nosh is a terrible word. There has to be some other way to describe eating something, I don’t care how, but for the love of all things good and beautiful in the world, can we not make ‘nosh’ a thing? Or remake it a thing, because I was reading something from a few decades back and they used it, but that’s an entirely different thing.
