I made us milkshakes!
Milkshakes with chocolate peanut butter fudge sauce….
It is truly as incredible as it sounds.
It is also the quintessential summer drink.
But I did not make these because it’s summer.
No siree, I made them with my dad in mind. He likes milkshakes, but only really good ones. You know the ones from either DQ or the really old-time diner restaurants. Why is that old-time diner restaurants rule? I mean seriously – good burgers, good fries, awesome milkshakes!
Okay, since it is Friday and my brain feels literally fried we’re gonna get right to it today.
Although, this is a SERIOUS milkshake.
The base of the milkshake is vanilla ice cream blended with some easy homemade butterscotch sauce, a little milk, a little vanilla extract and if you’re into it, a little splash of scotch or whiskey.
Can I just say, the milkshake alone is out of this world!! The butterscotch flavor is insane and SO good. Honestly, if you wanted to stop right there you could. Vanilla ice cream and butterscotch sauce all blender together is just, whoa! So good!
Oh and adding the splash of scotch? That’s pretty good too, very authentic!
So I said you COULD stop there, not you should.
No, you should definitely go on because it gets better!
Chocolate peanut butter fudge sauce.
Ah huh. Fudge sauce mixed with peanut butter.
Here’s what you do.
First, you have to make the butterscotch, but I promise it’s so easy and takes only five minutes. Second you gotta make the fudge sauce, but again this is SO easy and can be done all in the microwave or in one pot on the stove.
You take the fudge sauce and you drizzle it all over your tall glass, then you take the butterscotch sauce and drizzle that all over the inside of your tall glass.
Blend up that butterscotch milkshake and then…
Butterscotch milkshake, fudge sauce, butterscotch sauce, butterscotch milkshake, fudge sauce, butterscotch sauce.
Let’s make Friday milkshakes a regular thing. K? Cool.
