Daryl and I love having and entertaining guests, especially during the holiday season.  We would much rather spend our guests than spending endless hours preparing food to serve in the kitchen.  Peppermint is easily one of my top three favorite flavors and there seems to be peppermint flavored everything in store during the holiday season.  I’m a sucker for easy recipes and this peppermint ice cream shake is simple, quick, and doesn't create a huge mess.

In order to make these delicious Peppermint Ice Cream shakes I needed to make a run to my local Walmart for peppermint ice cream and chocolate chip morsels (for homemade hot fudge of course). When choosing a peppermint ice cream I knew I couldn't go wrong with Dreyer’s Peppermint Wonderland ice cream, the peppermint candy pieces blend together to create a refreshing flavor in every spoonful. When choosing chocolate chips I chose NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Limited Edition HolidayMorsels.  I wanted to create festive hot fudge and knew I could only do this with these chocolate chips. Red, green, and classic Semi-Sweet morsels all wrapped in a festive seasonal package, these are the perfect holiday chocolate chips. Available for a limited time only!

I found the Dreyer’s Peppermint Wonderland in the ice cream aisle and the NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Limited Edition Holiday Morsels in the baking nuts and chips sections of Walmart.

Now without further ado here’s the Peppermint Ice Cream Shake recipe:

Peppermint Ice Cream Shake
(makes two 8oz servings)

2 cups of Dreyer’s Peppermint Wonderland Ice Cream
1 cup of your choice of milk
1/3 package of  NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Limited Edition Holiday Morsels  (for garnishing)
Your choice of whipped cream (for garnishing)

  1. Begin by taking 2 serving glasses and placing them in your freezer. Hot fudge will cling on better to a cool glass.
  2. Next open your NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Limited Edition Holiday Morsels and sort them by color. Once sorted, place into three separate bowls and add 2 TBSP of water to each bowl and microwave individually for 90 seconds. Stir hot water and half way melted chocolate chips until consistency is that of hot fudge. Let hot fudge cool and thicken for 3-5 minutes
  3. Meanwhile, take your Dreyer's Peppermint Wonderland Ice Cream and milk and mix it in the blender. You can add a cup of ice for a thicker shake.
  4. Take glasses out of freezer and drizzle the inside of the cups with festive hot fudge. I did one cup with green and the other with red. You can mix and match or do all three the choice is up to you.
  5. Once you have drizzled your glasses add shake mixture into each cup and garnish with whipped cream and remaining hot fudge.
