It’s that time of year, my friends! The Cadbury Mini Eggs are springing up in stores everywhere, and that makes me one happy cookie. If you’ve never tried Cadbury Mini Eggs, you might wonder what makes them so great. There is something so satisfying about biting into that crunchy, flaky shell and reaching ultra-creamy and rich Cadbury chocolate. Go try some, join our fan club, then continue reading.
Okay, now that that’s over, on to the greatest milkshake of all time: my Cadbury Caramel Cake Milkshake. I took my favorite Easter candies and blended them into a thick and creamy shake, along with sweet caramel and vanilla cake. It’s a party in a milkshake, and we’re celebrating spring.
Okay, maybe it doesn’t feel like spring here in CNY right now, but it’ll be here before we know it. Nothing will get you ready better than this frosty glass of perfection. When you’ve got Cadbury Eggs on their own, or cake, or caramel, they are all amazing in their own right. Combine them, and you get something out of this world.
But you better break out your big straws because this thick shake means business, and no puny straw will do. Or you can be a wild child and ditch the straw altogether. That’s the nice thing about making milkshakes at home; there’s no one to judge whether you use a beverage delivery vessel or not.
Let’s start the season of on the right foot (or should I say, rabbit’s foot!) with this chocolate-speckled, caramel-swirled, cake-studded shake. It ain’t spring yet, but we can pretend!
A Few Tips Before You Get Cooking:
- I recommend using Mrs. Richardson’s caramel sauce. It’s my favorite – thick and not too sweet.
- You can also add fudge sauce. Why not?
- If you don’t own a blender, do what I did and use a food processor.
- You can buy fun, decorative straws to adorn your shakes with at just about any store: Target, Walmart, Michaels, etc.
Cadbury Caramel Cake Milkshake
By The Smart Cookie Cook
- 3 generous cups vanilla ice cream
- 2 slice vanilla pound cake
- 1 cup Cadbury Mini Eggs, crushed
- 1/3 cup caramel sauce, plus more for the glasses
- ¼ cup heavy cream
- Optional: spring-colored sprinkles
- In a blender, pulse ice cream until it smooths out just a bit.
- Add pound cake and pulse just until it starts to break up. Add the Cadbury Eggs, 1/3 cup caramel and cream and blender until nice and smooth and well mixed. If its too thick, add more cream.
- Use a fork to drizzle caramel along the inner sides of two glasses. Divide milkshake mixture between glasses and top with sprinkles, if desired.
