For the ultimate cookies and cream sweet treat, break out your favorite chocolate chip cookies and some vanilla ice cream for this Chocolate Chip Cookie Milkshake.
I am the worst type of snacker out there. Some people go for the savory, some for the sweet. I go for both, at any time of day. It’s good and bad when you think about it, snacks in general are delicious but they are a downfall to my waistline.
I can’t help it – the crispy salty crunch of chips pull me in every time (don’t get me started on a bag of fritos, it’s like a magnetic force) and then there’s chocolate. Everyone needs a little bit of chocolate everyday.
Oops. . . did I just admit that out loud? Yeah, fine, I like to have just a smidge of chocolate or something sweet every day. Sometimes fruit does the trick, sometimes not. . .
Of course it doesn’t help my snacking habit that I bake up dozens of cookies every single week. Even when those orders go right out to people there’s usually one or two leftover, sometimes more. . . What’s a baker to do? Can’t let them go to waste now. Yet when I suddenly found myself with a few too many chocolate chip cookies sitting around, I decided on a new solution.
Ice cream meet your friend the chocolate chip cookie.
Sure an easy ice cream sandwich could have been made but what I was feeling was a milkshake. It’s hot and I wanted to slurp my dessert in this ultra decadent version of cookies and creme. Just a few ingredients transformed into one awesome milkshake, so the next time you baked up a few extra cookie (or you know decided to order a batch, ahem coughcoughcough) save some for this fun shake.
