BEST EVER SUMMER DESSERT
The quintessential summer dessert is hands down, ice cream in any form. The whirl and hum of Ice Cream Churns has been heard for ions. Thankfully they are electric now and come in all sizes and shapes. One thing remains constant though, they crank out the very best summer desserts!
You might say we cranked it up a notch by adding melted milk chocolate filled candy sprinkles to the rim of our milkshake glasses! It wouldn’t be right if they weren’t topped with gobs of whipped cream with a cherry on top!
The Best Part of This Summer Dessert
It is super easy to make at home with few ingredients!
There are candy sprinkles involved too! Candy sprinkles added to dessert automatically gave you the feeling of having your own little party!
- Rainbow sprinkles
- Mini-Chocolate Chips
- Vanilla ice cream
- Real vanilla extract
- Whole milk
- Whipped Cream
- Maraschino Cherries
Chocolate & Sprinkle Rimmed Glasses
Using a ramekin upside down in a bowl allows you to use less chocolate chips for coating the rims. If using this method, check to make sure the tops of your glasses will fit around the ramekin.
No ramekin? No problem. It’s a nice little trick but you can still melt chocolate and dip the glass rims in it. You will probably use more chocolate chips in the process.
Be sure to take into account how deep you want your chocolate rim on your glasses to be when selecting the bowl you will be using to melt the chocolate in.
Printable recipe below
- 1/3 Cup rainbow sprinkles
- ¼ Cup mini-chocolate chips
- 3 Cup vanilla ice cream
- 1 tsp. real vanilla extract
- 1/3 Cup. whole milk
- FOR GARNISH
- Whipped cream
- Rainbow sprinkles
- Maraschino cherries
Pour rainbow sprinkles onto a shallow plate and set aside.
Place a small ramekin, topside down, inside a small bowl wide enough to fit the top of each serving glass as shown
Pour the mini-chocolate chips around the ramekin. (If ramekin is unavailable, add one-half cup chocolate chips directly to the bowl.). Microwave on 50% power just until the chips melt, approximately 2-3 minutes. Check after 90 seconds to determine total microwave time.
Remove from microwave and carefully break up any remaining solid pieces of chocolate with a fork.
Dip the tops of each glass into the melted chocolate, and then roll
the chocolate-coated edge in the rainbow sprinkles. Roll each glass edge until
uniformly coated. Turn upright and set aside to dry.
You can sit the prepared glasses into the freezer while you prepare the milkshake
Add the ice cream, vanilla extract, and milk to a blender and blend until smooth.
Add a little additional milk to reach the desired consistency, if desired.
To serve, pour the milkshake into the prepared glasses and top with whipped cream, additional sprinkles, and a maraschino cherry.
If you do not have mini-chocolate chips on hand, use the regular but they may take longer to melt in the microwave.
