So a Thin Mint cookie, some good ol’ vanilla ice cream, and homemade fudge walk into a blender…

And create the best milk shake ever. (channels Outkast: Forever ever?)

But fo’ reals. This is delicious. Like a girl scout cookie in a glass. Plus, it’s totally St. Patty’s appropriate.

Though if we were going to go that route, we should probably add Schnapps… OK officially Schnapps would be a great addition to this shake.

Aaand if it were up to me (which it is…), I would call this a frappe. Because I am from Boston and in Boston milkshakes are frappes. But to make this post geographically-appropriate, Shake it is.

Did I mention how good it is though?

RECIPE

Thin Mint Shake

Serves 3 cups shake!     adjust servings

Optional: toss in some Schnapps for a boozy treat!

Ingredients

For the mint hot fudge

  • 1/4 teaspoon mint extract
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

For the shake

  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 large handful mint leaves (about 1/2 cup)
  • 3+ tablespoons whole milk
  • 15 drops green food coloring
  • 8 Thin Mint cookies

For the thin mint rim

  • 2 Thin Mint cookies
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Instructions

  1. Cook fudge my heating cream on medium heat until scaling (steaming but not yet boiling). Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips and mint extract. Set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Pulverize two thin mint cookies in a blender until powder. Add in sugar and pour onto a small plate. Fill a clean bowl with water, then dip the rim of your glass into the water. Shake off excess liquid, then dip the rim into the powdered cookie mixture. Set aside.
  3. Combine all shake ingredients in a blender. Begin with 3 tablespoons of whole milk, and add more as needed, one tablespoon at a time. It's better to start with a thicker milkshake than to make a thin one and have it unsalvageable!
  4. Drizzle fudge sauce onto the sides of the glass, then pour in shake. Top with a few sprigs of fresh mint and a thin mint cookie!

Yes, like with three straws for maximum inhalation

These totally remind me of college, especially with the schnapps reference!

I’m a pretty new blogger (started in January), and actually found your website through a friend, Peter Wasky, who says he went to U Michigan with you! Peter and I both go to medical school in Indianapolis now. Anyways it’s nice to finally say hello! Your blog is awesome and I am completely crazy for all those brownie and donut recipes you have. I’m definitely looking forward to future posts!

These just might be the most beautiful milkshakes I have EVER seen. Teach me your ways, lady!

Oh god, this is so up my alley right now. Thin mints are the freaking best. And yes, it definitely needs some Schnapps to make it complete.

Fave girl scout cookie by far, amiright?

I might have to dose this with some Bailey’s instead of schnapps…but you’ll forgive me right? Chocolate mint lovah for LIFE.

Uhhh forgive you? I will partake in the drinking with you πŸ™‚

Oh man, I wish I didn’t eat all the thin mints last week. YES, add a little splash of peppermint schnapps and we’ll have a partayayyyy! Also, love the links. The last dog video has me smiling from ear to ear. πŸ™‚

Looks like reason enough to go get some more thin mints! Yaaaay, partay!

Sarah, aside from loving the shake and the images (did you make it just for me?), I totally got your comment about wanting to call it a frappe but feeling it would be a global no-no. I’m in the UK and often debate icing-frosting, cookies-biscuits, jam-jelly… you get the picture. In the end, I’ve decided to be true to my British roots, hope all my readers understand and don’t get totally confused. Nice to know I’m not the only one having these internal head debates though!

Who needs the cookies when you can drink them in milkshake form?? LOVE this. Off to find me some Thin Mints!

Reply

I don’t have any thin mints, but if I did I would be blending myself up one of these RIGHT NOW πŸ™‚

Okay, weird question. Did you shoot this on a white counter top or something else? The photos look great, and I’m curious about your set up.

OMG woweeeee – this is amazing!!
