Caramel Bourbon Brownie Milkshakes

My favorite thing to do most evenings is to curl up with a good cookbook, a snack, and my two canine bookends. It’s something I’ve always loved to do even before I started blogging, and not much has changed except that many of the cookbooks in my bedside pile are from my blogging peers!

One of my recent favorites is from my pal Jessica of How Sweet It Is. Her new cookbook is called Seriously Delish and it is outstanding. It’s full of beautiful glossy images and Jessica’s friendly relatable voice really shines through the written word. There’s all kinds of recipes – certainly decadent desserts, but also lighter fare and what I call “solid food” (meaning food that isn’t buttercream and has actual nutritional value – something I need to work on learning more about -ha!).

To Enter!  The contest is now closed – thanks to all who participated!

PS. This milkshake tastes extra good while wearing fuzzy socks.

PPS. I made the brownies for this recipe in my mini doughnut pan, which made them way too easy to eat!

Fleur de Sel Caramel Bourbon Brownie Milk Shakes

[click for printable version]

 2 cups whole milk

Whipped cream for topping

Combine the milk, ice cream, bourbon, brownies, 1/2 cup of the caramel sauce and salt in a blender and puree until smooth. 

Fill two glasses with 1/4 cup of caramel each and pourthe shakes into the glasses. 

Top the shakes with the whipped cream, an extra drizzle of caramel and another pinch of salt.

Crumble a brownie on top.

I love your PS note, Heather. You are too cute!

My fav sweet snack….there are so many, but at the moment it's a bowl of graham crackers, pistachios, dried cherries, a sprinkle of instant coffee and a splash of milk. I call it My Eton Mess!

Wow, it's always hard to figure out which would be my favorite since I'm allergic to dairy which includes all milk and butter, even milk chocolate! So, it's usually homemade donuts–totally love your Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins ones but use almond milk to substitute the milk. 🙂

My favorite sweet treat is actually the peanut butter fudge pretzel brownies from the how sweet it is blog. They are the perfect combination of salty and sweet AND they have peanut butter and chocolate! Amazing!

It's hard to pick just one! Cookies, ice cream, milkshakes, just combine them all!

I think Brownies are pretty much the perfect desert. Especially when they're extra fudgey and have frosting on top! Of course, any type of chocolate will do when it comes to desert!

I love making myself a chocolate mug brownie using buttermilk for a sour cream cake-ish tang, topped with hot fudge sauce and a scoop of ice cream! MMMMMM!

My favourite just has to be a cookie–but not just any cookie, mind you. It must be a little crisp on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, and preferably contain some chocolate. Oh yeah, and warm is better. Totally satisfies those sweet needs, without indulging in something like a whole piece of cheese cake.

I'm a sucker for anything with sugar lol. Lately I've actually been snacking on fudge pops…I found some that are pretty big for only 90 calories that are fantastic.
