Fancy milkshakes seem to be all the rage right now. I am desperately trying to talk my husband into letting me do a food tour in New York, secretly to just have a milkshake from The New York Milkshake Lounge. Unfortunately, he is not having it. So until I can convince him otherwise, homemade milkshakes will have to do.
Thankfully, this milkshake is good enough to hold off my travel desires…for now. These are certainly the perfect dessert drinks to impress someone special. They would be the perfect way to end a fun dinner party. With thick silky dulce de leche swirled around the glass, creamy milkshake in the glass, a generous dollop of cinnamon whipped creamy, and finally a bit of crunch from the pepita brittle, they are a sure way to have your guests swooning.
I initially had the wonderful idea of making homemade churros to add to the milkshake toppings. While they did add a delicious touch, they were a pain in the butt to make. I can honestly say that I have sore arms from trying to pipe that dough, 2 days later! With that being said, homemade churros are the bomb.com, so if you have patience and some tough are muscles, I would highly recommend them. I will send you over to one of my favorite bloggers, Sugar Hero, for the recipe. I managed to make one churro ice cream sandwich and it was just about the best thing I have ever had.
Now back to these milkshakes! I made my Dulce de Leche using this simple recipe, however if you are in a pitch, you can purchase the pre-made version from most grocery stores. They even have the handy dandy squirt version. Whether you are making these for a fun dinner party, or just a treat for your family, you will be sure to enjoy them!
