You know how something catches your eye in the grocery store and you slyly put it in your basket because you just have to try it? Yeah, that happened with me. My local grocery store has a rewards program and they give you a pint of ice cream free (from a particular Vermont distributor) for your birthday. Not one to let something free go to waste, I quickly made my way to the freezer section to check out my selection. I have my favorites in Blue Bell and Tillamook so I wasn’t expecting to find something for myself. I thought I would get it and give it away. Well, lo and behold I saw one that called to me – chocolate covered waffle cones and caramel in the ice cream. Say what? Genius. Yes, and please, thank you. I immediately knew what I was going to do with it; make an over-the-top milkshake for my niece, Sydni.
My niece is a foodie and I couldn’t be happier about that fact. I’m always texting or snapping her foods that we have to try or something I’m going to make her. She (and her mom and brothers) recently spent a week with me for my birthday. Yay!
S’mores are my baby girl’s favorite thing ever. She will always take a s’mores whenever the opportunity presents itself. So as I was thinking of what kind of shake I wanted to make her I knew it would be a s’mores version. Then I saw this ice cream in the store and I knew it would be perfect for her shake. And it was! It was scrumptious on its own but throw it in a chocolate shake and we are on a whole other level.
Go ahead and get messy and make this over the top milkshake. You will not be disappointed.
Waffle Cone S’mores Milkshake
1 rectangle (4 pieces) of Graham Cracker
Pint of your favorite ice cream (try the one with chocolate covered waffle cone and caramel in it)
1/4 c milk
2 Tbsp chocolate syrup + more for drizzling
Chocolate icing (or peanut butter)
Waffle ice cream bowl
Chocolate candy bar
Caramel topping sauce
Prepare s’mores by preheating broiler on the oven.
Break apart the waffle bowl to get your s’mores bottom pieces. Add pieces of chocolate candy bar to the waffle pieces. Top with a marshmallow. Place on a baking sheet and broil for about :20 seconds (watching very carefully so as not to burn the marshmallows). Remove from oven.
In a blender, add ice cream, milk and chocolate sauce. Blend until you get the milkshake consistency you like.
Place graham crackers in a plastic baggie. Seal then take the back of a knife and crush the crackers.
Spread chocolate icing (or peanut butter) on rim of a mason jar glass. Sprinkle Graham cracker crumbs over icing.
Optional: you can drizzle chocolate sauce down the sides of the jar if you’d like more chocolate.
Add milkshake to glass. Top with whipped cream and drizzle chocolate and caramel sauce on top. Sprinkle remaining Graham cracker crumbs and place s’mores on top as decoration.
Enjoy with a plastic or metal straw. My niece’s only complaint was that I gave her a paper straw to drink it with.
