Preparation

3 ways to create absolutely epic milkshakes

From salty-sweet to coffee and donuts, we've got three milkshake recipes that you and your sweet tooth will love!

Thoroughly blend the milk, ice cream, and frozen strawberries.

Take a knife or spatula and spread a layer of frosting around the outside of your milkshake glass. This is what is going to serve as our “glue” for the candy and cookies!

Get your confectionaries together! Add some strawberry wafers to the outside of the glass, right on the frosting. Leave enough space between the wafers in order to drop some rainbow sprinkles in between.

Add some more frosting to the lip of the glass. Now, flip the glass upside-down, and very gently dip the top into the rainbow sprinkles.

Turn it rightside up, grab your strawberry syrup, and drizzle it around the inside of the glass.

Pour your milkshake inside, filling it up to the top. Swirl a hefty amount of whipped cream over the top.

Now’s the time to go nuts — add some cotton candy, rock candy, lollipops, pirouettes, sour patch kids, jumbo sprinkles, and whatever else may come to mind! Get creative! The more, the merrier!
