Fancy Strawberry Mini-Milkshakes

The strawberry milkshake. So simple and tasty—and so perfectly suited for a little dressing up!
We made a special version for Valentine's Day, but you could make these as an after-school snack on any day.
I simply added melted chocolate and sprinkles to the rim of a 2 oz shot glass (but you could use any sort of small glass), filled the glass up with blended strawberry ice cream, milk and a little strawberry syrup. Then I added a pretty paper straw and that was it! It really is that simple!
How to Make Your Own Mini Milkshake
1. Melt about 1/4 cup of chocolate in the microwave in a heat safe dish. Heat the chocolate on high for 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval until your chocolate is melted and smooth. Do not overheat.
2. Dip the rim of the glass gently into the melted chocolate, just far enough to cover the lip of the glass.
3. Let the chocolate cool for 15-20 seconds before dipping it gently into a little dish of sprinkles.
4. Turn the glass right-side up and then repeat this process with all your other glasses. Put the glasses in the fridge so the chocolate can cool and harden for a few minutes.

5. While the glasses are in the fridge, you can make your milkshakes. I use equal parts milk and strawberry ice cream and blend until smooth. Sometimes, I add a few teaspoons of strawberry syrup for an extra kick of flavour, which my children greatly appreciate! Feel free to add fresh strawberries to your shakes too, if you like!
6. Finally, remove the glasses from the fridge and carefully pour the milkshakes, filling the glasses to the brim. Add the straws (I cut them down to fit the smaller glass) and let your kids enjoy!
P.S. These little strawberry shakes are toddler approved!
