So, I’m kind of in love with this milkshake. Brownies, ice cream, chocolate syrup and a little Kahlua coffee.
My Saturday night is to blame for these. With a sudden late night craving for chocolate, I went to the pantry … fingers crossed … that I had a brownie mix (aka my guilty pleasure quick fix) in there. And yay … I did. Because if I didn’t, I don’t think I would have gone to the extra few minutes of effort to bake them from scratch.

Then I proceeded to eat more than my share of warm brownies to make me feel better.
And by late Sunday afternoon, I figured I’d finish the rest off with a little ice cream.
One of my all time favorite sweets to enjoy is warm brownies with vanilla ice cream. I’m easy like that. But today I’m going all cold and creamy.
Throw everything in a blender until combined. Bam. Done.
I think I’d be just fine with a spoon. Yep. Yes I would.

But let’s dress them up a little bit with whipped cream and chocolate syrup.
So pretty. And now they look as good as they taste! What’s your favorite make at home milkshake flavors.
