Chocolate Lover’s Coffee Shake

August 23rd, 2017 by

Have you noticed the monstrously huge milkshakes all over Instagram that seem to explode out of their glass? Either you find them a little much or you accept the challenge and dive in as we have. Have fun with the recipe and add whatever you like, but please read the tips section and learn from our (messy) mistakes!

Ingredients

For the milkshake:

1 cup strong coffee, chilled (we used French Roast)

4 large scoops chocolate ice cream

Toppings (as pictured):

Chocolate Fudge

Marshmallow creme

Cookie pieces

Chocolate whipped cream

Chocolate covered espresso beans

1 ice cream sandwich

1 chocolate bar broken into pieces

Instructions

To create a swirl effect, use a knife to spread some fudge on the inside of the glass. Next spread a band of the marshmallow creme around the outside at the top. Stick on cookie pieces, candy, or sprinkles. Keep it light here, or things will slide! Then pour your milkshake into the glass, leaving some room at the top, followed by whipped cream. Add your straw and pile on whatever you like; we added a chocolate bar, chocolate covered espresso beans, and an ice cream sandwich. We’ve seen doughnuts, cake slices, marshmallows on a stick, etc. The sky is the limit (if you work very quickly).

*TIPS*

Once the outside of the glass has been decorated, stick it in the freezer until you are ready to add the shake. About ten minutes should do the trick. If you’re adding especially heavy candy or cookies to the outside, keep the rim of the glass clean and turn it upside down on a baking sheet to keep things from relocating themselves before they firm up in the freezer.

Make sure your shake is super thick! Add more ice cream if necessary.

Leave a half-inch or so of room at the top when pouring the shake. Otherwise it might overflow when you add your heavier toppings.

Serve with a spoon, and maybe a fork and knife as well. The straw is mainly decoration.

On a hot day, things will start to slump quickly, so dive in immediately!
