What do you get when you combine 5 marshmallow Peeps, a couple scoops of chocolate ice cream and a generous splash of milk? You get a yummy Chocolate Peep Shake–it is a wonderful marriage of chocolatey goodness and creamy peepness. Hey, it is Peep Week, I’m allowed to make up Peep words too!
Adapted from a few recipes I found online, this shake is super simple because at 10:15 pm complicated is absolutely off limits. Consider yourself warned that I made this milkshake the same way I make my meatballs, by sight and taste. It is not easy to pass on a recipe, but the meatballs are great!
First, put 5 marshmallow Peeps on a cookie sheet and place them under your oven broiler for 1-2 minutes until they are toasted. I actually burned the tips of the blue Peeps I chose, but they worked well anyway. Let them cool for about 10 minutes.
Put the Peeps into the blender, followed by a 2-3 scoops of chocolate ice cream. Add a splash of milk and blend for a minute or so until it is mixed together and a creamy texture. Pour the mixture into your favorite glass, top with a Peep and enjoy!
PS. As you might be imagining, Peep Week is dwindling faster than my huge stack of Peeps…
