Candy Cane Milkshake


Let the Christmas Countdown begin!   Here is the 2nd day of  Christmas themed multi-blogger event.  The theme for today is... Candy Canes.  So I had to include my Candy Cane Milkshake because it's fun and festive.  Only a Grinch would say no to this sweet and minty treat.   My husband and kids went a little crazy over it so I hope you try it and enjoy it too.  It's a great way to use up
those broken candy canes... so start smashing them and enjoy!  PS.. Santa may enjoy a milkshake as well...  :)  HO!HO!HO!

7-8 scoops of ice cream
1/4 cup of crushed candy canes
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 tsp of mint extract (optional)
whip cream 
crushed candy canes for garnish

In a small saucepan heat your 1/2 cup of water and crushed candy canes.  Allow to boil until the candy canes are fully melted.  This should take a few minutes.  Then allow the "candy cane simple syrup" to cool down. 

 In a blender add your ice cream, milk, candy cane simple syrup, mint extract and a 2 tsp of crushed candy canes.  Blend well until smooth.   Pour into a glass, top with whip cream and more crushed candy canes.  Enjoy.
