Thirsty Thursday: Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake

It’s the coldest it’s been in Boston in a long time. So why the hell am I posting about a milkshake. Why the hell not!?! Put a hat on, wear some gloves inside, whatever, just make sure you give this shake a try.

Every holiday season I go on a candy buying binge and act as if all the M&M’s and Reese’s peanut butter cups are going to run out. I did a good job putting a dent into that stash this year but I still had plenty of Reese’s cups hanging around. That might happen when you buy 8 bags… really, what was I thinking? So, I ran over to my huge bin of goodies and dug out a bag to have fun with so I could mix of this shake.

This Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake is in honor of National Peanut Butter Day, which is why this week’s theme for Thirsty Thursday is peanut butter. I had a lot of ideas about what I would whip up but decided with something simple, indulgent, irresistible, and packed full of candies. It’s easy to make, if you can pour milk, scoop ice cream, and chop up some candies you are good to go. I suggest that you finely chop the pb cups as the chocolate will freeze once it hits the cold ice cream so the smaller it is the easier & faster it is to blend.

Amanda has whipped up some awesome Peanut Butter Waffles. Peanut Butter Waffles?! That sounds perfect for a homemade weekend brunch! Ooo ,maybe with some bacon! Wait! How about some hot maple syrup with sliced banana on top! I think Elvis would be proud.

    Supposedly, Alaska is the state with the highest per-capita consumption of ice cream.

    Therefore, I see no problem with a milkshake in bitter cold Boston—especially one of this caliber! Sounds dee-lish!
