More About This Recipe
  • Buttercrunch is one of my all-time favorite candies. You know what I am talking about, right? Crunchy toffee, coated with chocolate, and rolled in almonds?

    So. Good. Need. Some. Now.

    I recently have discovered that I like to serve adult milkshakes for dessert at my dinner parties. When I place a cute little milkshake in front of a dinner guest, they get excited, but when they taste it, they go nuts. Their minds are blown. They are not expecting a dessert and cocktail in one.

    I have a little secret. It is the secret that makes my milkshakes so awesome.

    You ready?

    I don’t use any milk. I use booze instead.

    Seriously, it is just about the best thing on the planet. I have made many milkshake versions of my cocktails and now I am sharing a buttercrunch version with you.

    This Buttercrunch Milkshake also takes about 5 minutes to make. And that is if you are moving kind of slow. Perfect for a party.

    Let’s get going.

    Pour buttershots and amaretto into the bottom of the blender.

    Add a pint of chocolate ice cream. This will make about 2 generous milkshakes, but they are rich, so you could make them even smaller if you want to.

    Chop up a few pieces of buttercrunch. I also leave a few pieces out to use as a topping.

    Add the buttercrunch to the blender and let it rip.

    Pour the milkshakes into glasses.

    Add some whipped cream and the remaining buttercrunch. Dessert and cocktail in one!
