It’s September, but I refuse to believe it’s the end of ice cream season. No way! You can talk to me about fall weather and fuzzy scarves and pumpkin lattes all you want, but I’m not convinced. I’m  keeping my ice cream. And I’ll pick up a few candy bars while I’m at it, because you know what? We have milkshakes to make!

Candy Bar Milkshakes Recipe | OhNuts.comSince milkshakes don’t require too much by way of explanation or step-by-step photos, I thought I’d include a bonus recipe: a quick and easy way to make caramel sauce from prepackaged caramels! This will work with practically any soft caramel you have. Unwrap them, and place them in a microwave-safe bowl.

Add 2 tablespoons of milk to the bowl. Cream, half and half, or water can all be substituted for milk.

At first the caramels will seem stiff and will resist melting, but after about 3 minutes, the caramels will turn into a melted, smooth caramel sauce. If it’s too thick to drizzle easily, add a bit more milk until it thins out. Set your new spiffy homemade caramel sauce aside to cool slightly while you prepare the milkshake.

Coarsely chop the chocolate-covered peanuts and the candy bars, and set them aside for now.

Combine the slightly softened ice cream and the remaining 1 cup of milk in the blender, then add most of the chopped candy bars and nuts. Reserve a handful of candy, to use as a garnish later.

Blend in 5-second bursts, scraping the bottom and sides of the mixer occasionally to help everything mix evenly. The milkshake is done when it has a thick, smooth texture and small bits of candy bars and peanuts scattered throughout.

Now, just a pinch of chopped candy! This whole “surprise on the bottom” set up makes these milkshakes super fun to eat with a long spoon–each bite has a layer of something new and unexpected!
