Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake Recipe

Smooth peanut butter and butter pecan ice cream create layers of nutty flavor in this sweet, salty take on the classic peanut butter cup.

Why this recipe works:

  • Butter pecan ice cream along with chocolate in the base gives an extra nutty boost.
  • A pinch of salt brings out the peanut butter flavor.
  • Adding just a bit of whole milk to a generous portion of ice cream makes things blendable while keeping the milkshake super thick.

Note: Allow the ice cream to soften on the counter for 5 minutes before scooping.
