Brownie Batter Milkshake


You knew it had to be done.
And done I did.

I don’t normally say this about things I make, but this, my friends, is the most delicious milkshake you’ve had in a long while.
That much I can promise you.
I mean, unless you are on one of those shows where people search the world for the best of something…and then I already hate you, so whatever.

I think I need to be on one of those shows.
I would gladly give up some time to search for the best milkshake.

TV Producers are you listening? I’m available for milkshake testing…

I didn’t want to do it anyway.

Ok, let’s get back to me.
I mean milkshakes.
Yes, milkshakes.

Brownie Batter Milkshakes.

People, these are so simple.
Just like a hug, or a smile.
That’s really all the effort they take.

Unless you count washing your blender, which I kinda, sorta hate to do.
Why is that?

Ok, Ice cream?
Photobucket Brownie Batter?
Photobucket Blender that I hate to clean?
Photobucket Oh yeah, there’s a little milk in there too. Full disclosure.

And this is what you get.
I mean…
Photobucket I, of course, added some Brownie Batter Whipped Cream, drizzled some chocolate sauce on, added some brownies and fancied up my glass by dipping the rim in a teensy amount of corn syrup and then chocolate sprinkles.

But you don’t have to.

All you have to do is make it.

And milkshake your face off.

This looks amazing! It would be great with cookie dough truffles on the side 😉

June 25, 2012 7:04 pm

Wow! Oh wow!!! Chocolate coma over here!

June 25, 2012 7:10 pm

Yum yum yum! Brownie batter milkshake topped with actual brownies and hot fudge – I think I’m in love! 😀


Your pictures are beautiful! They make me want to reach right into the screen and take a sip of this shake (or really just gulp down the whole thing). Yum yum yum!

Does this use a whole or partial box of brownie mix?

June 25, 2012 7:50 pm

June 25, 2012 7:58 pm

Goodness gracious…these look fantastic!

June 25, 2012 8:31 pm

OMG love this so so much. I absolutely cannot wait try this milkshake!

June 25, 2012 8:37 pm

Oh my gosh…my husband just saw this and totally freaked out. I guess I am making this for our anniversary tomorrow instead of cake, lol!

June 25, 2012 8:50 pm

OMG. Sounds incredible!

June 25, 2012 9:02 pm

This atkins diet will be put off for yet another week, I just made the fluffernutter cupcakes this is next.

June 25, 2012 9:11 pm

This is waaaaay to easy. I foresee milkshakes three times a day.

June 25, 2012 9:12 pm

Yes, yes and yes.

June 25, 2012 9:23 pm

Oh my goodness, you did it again. Amazingness in a cup. Seriously, I would love to be your neighbor one day…

June 25, 2012 9:27 pm

these would be amazing in my life right about now. i’m so craving a milkshake after a savory dinner! love the brownie chunks!

June 25, 2012 9:30 pm

Looking at my boxed brownies that turned out terribly and hitting myself in the head. Why did I not see this post yesterday?! This is my kind of milkshake and it so simple and wonderful!

June 25, 2012 9:41 pm

I want one right now! What a treat!

June 25, 2012 9:48 pm

If I ever find myself on one of those shows, I’ll totally know where to turn…YOUR KITCHEN!

June 25, 2012 10:07 pm

I’m loving these brownie batter recipes!

June 25, 2012 10:48 pm

I can’t stand cleaning my blender either! Maybe because there are sharp blades involved. I usually use my hand blender for shakes! Can’t wait to try this one!

June 25, 2012 11:24 pm

This sounds way too yummy!

June 26, 2012 1:14 am

Milkshaking my face off is one of my fave past-times… however did you know?! I can say, though, that brownie batter milkshakes had never crossed my radar and I don’t know why? Perhaps the universe hated me until this very moment? Either way, this is easy and perfect and amazeballs. Like, totally amazeballs.

June 26, 2012 7:02 am

Pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to share that milkshake with anyone else!

June 26, 2012 8:55 am

Okay, considering we practically live off of milkshakes in the summer, we’ll be making this one soon! Seriously amazing!

June 26, 2012 8:55 am

Oooh, this looks fantastic!!

Looks amazing… “My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard” is stuck in my head!


Ok, I will have 3 of those today – it is going to be 100+ degrees out, perfect way to cool off!

June 26, 2012 10:21 am

Milkshake + anything cakey = bliss. I am feeling the need to go and dig out my blender (which I also hate cleaning) right now.

June 26, 2012 10:31 am

Omg you have NO IDEA how excited I am to try this milkshake! Loving brownie batter week so far!

June 26, 2012 11:44 am

You and Kristan amaZe me!

Fantastic! It’s not even 9am, and I want one now…

June 26, 2012 12:14 pm

And this is why I spend everyday praying my husband gets a job in New Jersey.

June 26, 2012 12:31 pm

omg – why have I not done this. This sounds freakin’ amazing. Hmmm…..I could totally add coconut to this, you could probably even use cake mix for a cake batter shake. love, love, love!

June 26, 2012 12:52 pm

I would inhale this! Pinned!

June 26, 2012 2:09 pm

That looks amazing!!!

June 26, 2012 3:31 pm

Genius. Always genius.

June 26, 2012 3:47 pm

All I can say is WOW! Thank you so much for making these. Here is a tip on how I get my blender mostly clean put in about 1/2 to 1 cup of warm water and a little dish soap. Then blend :)

Too decadent for words. I need this. AMAZING!

June 26, 2012 4:42 pm

You’re evil!

June 26, 2012 5:41 pm

Whoa! Beautiful. I absolutely love the rimmed chocolate on the glass. I am in heaven already. Im going to walk away before I lick my computer screen…

June 26, 2012 6:13 pm

I’m getting the sugar shakes just from reading it! Nothing is better than a brownie and a glass of milk. Combined…yummy, I’m sure. Looks delicious!

June 26, 2012 9:48 pm

That is the pefect summer dessert!
