This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Sweetworks in order to make my Candy Crunch Milkshake. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.
Am I the only one that loves milkshakes more in winter than any other time of year? It sounds a little counter-intuitive, I know, but it’s true. But when the temperatures drop I start craving them.
Most of the time my go-to choice is a good ol’ fashioned chocolate shake. Sometimes I get a little crazy and go the cookies and cream route. But when the generous folks at Sweetworks sent me a big box of chocolate and candy the other day, I started to get an idea.
As my husband can attest, when I get an “idea” it can sometimes be dangerous. But this time it was delicious. My idea was to mix some Sixlets into a shake which resulted in a cold, creamy vanilla milkshake with just a hint of chocolate and candy crunch. So, so good.
Candy Crunch Milkshake
- 4 large scoops vanilla ice cream
- ⅓ cup whole milk
- 2 oz Sixlets candy (roughly half of a movie theater-sized box)
- Whipped cream
- In a blender combine ice cream, milk, and Sixlets candy. Pulse until milk and ice cream are combined and candy has crushed slightly.
- Pour into a glass.
- Top with whipped cream, then garnish with a few extra Sixlets.
- Serve immediately.
An easy and festive drink that would be a great surprise treat for your guests this holiday season. Everyone else will be doing hot chocolate and you will be the one everyone remembers as having those “awesome winter milkshakes”. Trust me!
