Boozy Candy Cane Shake Recipe

Notes:

• This uses vanilla frosting to rim as candy canes can be heavy. If you crush your candy canes to be very fine, you should be able to rim using the peppermint schnapps as the wet, and finely crushed candy canes just around the top of your glass.

• You can use melted white chocolate as the “wet” for rimming! Just be sure to roll in the crushed candy cane before the chocolate hardens.

• To crush the candy canes… a plastic bag is probably optimal, although I’ve used a piece of wax paper folded in half before. Just make sure you keep it tight in the middle and don’t let the candy cane pieces squirt out the sides.

• You can use a rubber mallet, hammer, or rolling pin to crush the candy canes.

• This makes approximately 52-54 ounces off boozy milkshake. It depends on how much you can get out of your blender, and how large your scoops of ice cream are. Plan accordingly for glass rimming. Four glasses would equal 13 ounces each, three glasses about 17 ounces, two glasses, about 26 ounces of this boozy candy cane shake. I cannot imagine anyone drinking all of this alone, buuuuuuut…

• You can add a few drops of peppermint extract to the blender mixture for some extra cool in your shake!
