University of Leicester researcher Dr Kate Loveman, who found the recipe, has since tested it by successfully freezing hot chocolate with snow she shoveled from her garden in winter.

She said that freezing food required cutting-edge technology in 17th-century, so these ices were seen as great luxuries.
