Chocolate Irish Cream Milkshakes

Saint Patrick’s Day is already next week, and I’m all for creating fun desserts to help celebrate. What kind of fun desserts, you ask? Well, these Chocolate Irish Cream Milkshakes are one option!

These Chocolate Irish Cream Milkshakes are rich, creamy, and decadent. They have just enough Irish Cream to get that delicious, creamy taste without being too overpowering. Plus, their sprinkle covered rims add an extra pop of color and give you another delicious thing to snack on since you can use your spoon to scoop up the frosting and sprinkles in between sips!

You’ll first need to get started by making the chocolate frosting that will go around the rim of each glass. 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. You don’t need to worry about it looking perfectly smooth since you’ll be covering it up with lots of sprinkles.

Go ahead and pour the sprinkles onto a small plate and 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.

Now you’re ready to get started on the 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, milk, and Irish Cream into a blender and blend just until combined. I recommend starting off with 1 tbsp of Irish Cream, tasting it, and then adding up to another tbsp if you want it to be stronger.

And now we bring together all three elements! Slowly fill each glass with the chocolate milkshake mixture, being careful to not let it drip down onto the sprinkle covered rim. Top each milkshake off with a dollop of whipped cream and more sprinkles and enjoy!
