Magical Peanut Butter Moon Pie Ice Cream Milkshake
1 chocolate Moon Pie
1/2 cup half & half
2 tbsp. peanut butter (I used the all-natural, ground-on-demand stuff because, you know, milk shakes are health food, right?)
2 tbsp. chocolate syrup (I used good ol’ reliable Hershey’s!)
1 cup vanilla ice cream (get the good stuff, not the ‘churned’ full of air kind!)
(Note: I made this in a food processor because, well, because I seem to own a ninja blender. When I don’t need it, I sometimes think I see it out of the corner of my eye, but when I turn around? – WHOOSH – nothing! Gone without a trace. Needless to say, when I actually need it, it‘s probably hanging upside down in the attic rafters meditating on the fleeting nature of alternating current or something… ummm, oh yeah, I remember now: the food processor worked out fine. Just so you know.)
Chop or break up the Moon Pie into small pieces. Set your food processor on ‘annihilate’, or if you don’t have that setting, just pulse it until the Moon Pie is ground up into nanoparticles. Add the half & half, peanut butter, and chocolate syrup. Whip it good! Then add the ice cream, bring it lovingly into the fold using the ‘pummel’ setting, pour it into a tall glass, and decorate it with whipped cream.
Gaze on its beauty. Stare longingly at it. Meditate on the fleeting nature of milkshakes. Or take a picture – it’ll last longer. A lot longer. Cause after you take that first sip? That milkshake won’t know what hit it.
5 tbsp. chocolate drops
2 tbsp. vanilla sugar
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
2 tbsp. chocolate ice cream
1 pint of cold milk
Cool chocolate milk shakes (serves 4 if parents are making them
or 2 if grandma is...)
Place the chocolate, sugar, cocoa and a little milk in a saucepan and gently heat until the chocolate melts and the sugar dissolves.
Remove from the heat and whisk in the ice cream and remaining milk.
Pour into glasses top with the cream and adorn in the most fanciful ways with straws, umbrellas and chocolate shavings.
Aren’t they yummy or what? Start collecting them and put them into your recipe book for the summer’s last minute plans.
Which one do I want to try first, I’ll say the Chocolate Peanut Butter! I’m wondering if it taste like Reese’s candy, ya know?!
