Mint Chip Milkshakes

I’m back with another milkshake recipe for you! I think we all deserve another milkshake with all of this heat, don’t you? If you love mint and chocolate as much as me, this is the milkshake for you. Delicious crème de menthe meets luscious vanilla ice cream and little bits of bittersweet chocolate for a cool and refreshing drink.

Just like with my Dark Chocolate Mint Chip Cake, I love using crème de menthe because it adds just enough of a mint flavor without being too strong. You can use mint extract instead to make it more kid friendly, but be sure to add about 1 tsp at a time until you reach the flavor you want as a little goes a long way.

Berry Pie Milkshakes

One of my favorite summer desserts is a classic berry pie. I usually go for a combination of raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries, and I love snacking on a warm slice topped with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream. So why not take that exact thing, but transform it into a milkshake? Yep, a milkshake!!

All it takes is one slice of berry pie or two berry hand pies, some vanilla ice cream, some milk or almond milk, and a blender. Before you know it, you’ll have a delicious drink that tastes like berry pie fresh out of the oven, but in a cold and refreshing way, perfect for those hot summer days.

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cookies

Does anyone else love the combination of salty and sweet as much as me? These cookies are the perfect way to satisfy all of your salty and sweet cravings at the same time. A delicious chocolate cookie is met with a luscious salted caramel sauce and topped with a pretzel for an added salty crunch. And that’s not even mentioning that the cookie has the added bonus of chocolate chips!

Even though these cookies have several elements to them, they’re pretty simple and come together rather quickly. You’ll start out by making the salted caramel. Don’t let the words “salted caramel” dissuade you. This caramel recipe only takes four ingredients, and as long as you have your ingredients ready to go and you keep a close eye on your caramel’s color, you’ll end up with a delicious sauce! Trust me, you’ve got this. Plus, the next best thing? Any leftover caramel sauce can be stored in the fridge for all of your snacking/dipping/drenching needs.
