Holiday Shake: Chocolate Peppermint Shake

Spike is shakin' into the holidays all month at Good Stuff Eatery with his Chocolate Peppermint Shake.  Try one at home or stop in to taste.

6 oz Peppermint Extract
30 Peppermint Candies, plush extra for garnish
2 cups Creamy Chocolate Ice Cream
Whole milk
Whipped Cream

Melt 30 peppermint candies in 8oz of water. This takes a while to melt down. Then add 6oz of peppermint extract before the mixture cools down.

Add 4 tablespoons of the mixture to the chocolate ice cream. Save the remaining peppermint mixture for future shakes. Add a splash of milk. Mix in a blender.

For garnish, crush peppermint candies. These need to be finely crushed so that there are no large chunks or shards.

Top the shake with whipped cream and a sprinkle of the crushed peppermint candies.
