Better Than Snickers Milkshake Recipe

Autumn Giles

This extra-thick milkshake has all the flavors of a classic Snickers bar: caramel, chocolate, and peanuts.

Why this recipe works:

  • A generous serving of caramel ice cream yields an extra-thick shake.
  • Crunchy chopped peanuts on top are a textural match for a Snickers bar, while smooth peanut butter blended in the shake makes for rich peanut butter flavor.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder works to add a punch of chocolate flavor without amping up the sippable dessert's sweetness.

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