Thanksgiving Boozy Bourbon Butter Pecan Milkshake
Thanksgiving Boozy Bourbon Butter Pecan Milkshake
  • 1.25 cups milk
  • 4 cups butter pecan ice cream
  • 1 cup chocolate frosting
  • 6 Nutter Butter cookies, cut in half
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 cup chocolate sprinkles
  • 6-8 pretzels sticks
  • caramel sauce
  • optional: 3 shots of bourbon
  • Whipped cream:
  • heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. First, make your Nutter Butter acorns. Dip the cut half of each Nutter Butter cookie in melted chocolate, then immediately coat in chocolate sprinkles. Use a bit of melted chocolate to attached a small piece of pretzel to the top as the stem.
  2. Next, make your whipped cream. Stick your bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes, then remove and add 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, 1 Tbsp sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla. Whip on medium-high in your stand mixer until peaks forms. Add your whipped cream to a pastry bag outfitted with a fancy tip.
  3. Then garnish your glasses. Use a knife to add chocolate frosting to the rim of each glass, then press 3 acorns into the frosting on each glass and add some chocolate sprinkles. Chill the glasses in the freezer while you make your milkshakes. Next, top 3 skewer sticks with acorn cookies to stick on top.
  4. To make your milkshake, blend your milk and butter pecan ice cream in a blender. If you're making it boozy, add 3 shots of bourbon. Then pour your milkshake, top with whipped cream, add a straw and your acorn on a stick. Drizzle with caramel sauce and serve!
