Love and Confections: Chocolate Cookies 'n Cream Milkshake

August 20, 2014

Chocolate Cookies 'n Cream Milkshake

Chocolate Cookies 'n Cream Milkshake is a chocolate lover's dream and easy to whip up for an afternoon treat or decadent dessert.


Welcome to Day 3 of Ice Cream Week 2014! This year the event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We have teamed up with 25 amazing bloggers to treat you to tons of amazing ice cream recipes. Ice Cream Week is shaping up to be the best week ever!


Like I said yesterday, I am definitely a Vanilla Bean Ice Cream girl, but once in a while I treat myself to chocolate on top of chocolate on top of chocolate. This milkshake definitely satisfied my chocolate craving. Cookies 'n Cream is such a classic flavor and I decided to switch it up by using chocolate ice cream too.


You can use store bought ice cream or make your own, whichever you prefer. Mr. L&C loves his cookies 'n cream flavor. He usually picks that out when we buy ice cream. I can't wait until Baby L&C can be able to try ice cream. I love the joy it brings to kids and seeing their eyes light up when a sundae or ice cream cone is given to them, and then they can't eat it fast enough and it melts all over them. Total messy cuteness.
