Melted Witch Halloween Milkshake Recipe
These Melted Witch Milkshakes would be an awesome dessert for a small Halloween party or even a Wicked-themed party! The green milkshake is made even more over-the-top with a frosted rim speckled with eyeball sprinkles and has three “witches fingers” sticking out the top.
To make these milkshakes, you’ll need a few ingredients. It seems like a lot, but remember, these are over-the-top milkshakes. Mostly, you just need milk and mint chip ice cream. Everything else is extra!
- mint and chocolate chip ice cream
- pretzel rods
- green candy melts
- sliced almonds
- candy eyeball sprinkles
- vanilla frosting
- green food coloring
- chocolate sauce
- halloween sprinkles
- heavy whipping cream
- granulated sugar
- vanilla extract
Recommended Kitchen Equipment:
- Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer or Hand Mixer
- Disposable Pastry Bags or Reusable Silicone Pastry Bags
- Star 1M Size Pastry Bag Tip
- Parchment Paper
- Highball Glasses
- Green Paper Straws!
- Fancy Sprinkles
To make these milkshakes over the top, you need to make some witches’ fingers. They’re made by simply dipping some pretzel rods into melted green candy melts and then attaching a sliced almond as the fingernail. After the candy melt cools and sets, slice lines into it to make the “knuckle” marks.
I prefer to make homemade whipped cream because you can whip it stiffer to hold up better/longer which is especially nice if you’re assembling several milkshakes. Plus, it holds up the over-the-top garnishes better than the thinner store-bought whipped cream.
But, as usual, if you have store-bought and want to use store-bought, then it’s fine! No judgement here!
I use my Ninja blender for all my milkshakes! I can’t say enough good things about this blender! It’s not super cheap and won’t fall apart like some $20-30 brands (like Hamilton Beach), but it also doesn’t cost an arm and a leg like a Vitamix blender.
If you’re in need of a new blender, I definitely recommend this one. My only tip is that even though the pitcher says it’s dishwasher safe, be sure to hand wash it. Our first one cracked in the dishwasher, but our replacement pitcher has been going strong for 4-5 years now.
Ok, here’s the full, printable recipe:
- 1 1/4 cup milk
- 4 cups mint and chocolate chip ice cream
- 9 pretzel rods
- 2 cups green candy melts
- 9 almond slices
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 TB granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3-1/2 cup eyeball sprinkles
- 1 cup vanilla frosting
- 3-5 drops green food coloring
- chocolate sauce
- halloween sprinkles
- Start by making your witches' fingers. Melt your green candy melts following the manufacturer's instructions and then spoon the melted mixture into a glass lined with a pastry bag or ziploc bag. Dip a pretzel rod into the melted green candy melt to cover the pretzel rod, then immediately place on a piece of parchment paper and add an almond slice to the end as a fingernail and allow it to set. Continue with all of your pretzel rods and then create slices in the candy melt to create "knuckles."
- Next, make your homemade whipped cream by placing the heavy whipping cream, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract into your mixer bowl and whip on medium high using the whisk attachment of your stand mixer or a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Place into a pastry bag with a star tip and store in refrigerator until needed.
- Garnish your glasses by mixing together vanilla frosting and green food coloring. Try and get the color to match the witches' fingers. Spread the green frosting on the rim of your glasses and attach eyeball sprinkles. Place garnished glasses into your fridge while you blend your milkshake.
- In your blender, combine your milk and mint chocolate chip ice cream and blend. Check the consistency and add more milk if you want it thinner or more ice cream if you want it thicker.
- Next, drizzle chocolate sauce onto the insides of each garnished milkshake glass and immediately pour the blended milkshake.
- Top with a swirl of whipped cream. Add a straw and three witches' fingers and top with a handful of sprinkles.
