Halloween Chocolate Milkshakes

Halloween season is here, and I’m all for making as many spooky desserts as possible, but this time I wanted to create a festive drink that combines my love of Halloween and milkshakes! These Halloween Chocolate Milkshakes are rich, creamy, and icy cold, which makes them perfect for any Halloween when it’s still as hot as summer.

The thing that takes these Halloween Chocolate Milkshakes to the next level is the rim of chocolate frosting that’s dipped in loads of Halloween sprinkles. It makes the milkshakes look extra festive and is absolutely delicious. It’s the perfect thing to scoop with your spoon in between sips!

To make these festive milkshakes, you’ll first start by making the chocolate frosting. Blend the butter with a handheld or stand mixer until light and fluffy. Add in the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and heavy cream and mix until combined.

You’ll want to use an offset spatula or butter knife to carefully spread the chocolate frosting around the outside rim of each glass. Don’t worry about it looking perfectly smooth since you’ll be covering it up with sprinkles.

As far as sprinkles go, you can pretty much use any type that you like! Jimmies, nonpareils, and quins all work great. Once you choose your sprinkles, spread them out on a small plate.

Carefully roll each glass in the sprinkles, ensuring that they cover the chocolate frosting completely.

Pop each glass into the freezer to chill until you’re ready to assemble your milkshakes.

Next, you’ll need to make your whipped cream. Combine the heavy cream and sugar in a small bowl and mix on medium-high until somewhat stiff peaks form. Pop the bowl into the fridge while you get started on making the milkshake. Add the chocolate ice cream and milk into a blender and blend just until combined.

Now comes the moment you’ve been waiting for…bringing everything together! Slowly fill each glass with the chocolate milkshake mixture, being careful to not let it drip down onto the chocolate rim. Top each milkshake off with a dollop of whipped cream and more sprinkles and enjoy!
