Call it a guilty pleasure, tell me it is for kids, I don’t care. For me, there is nothing like the taste of a KitKat bar! I have been forced, once or twice, because of a demanding schedule, to pull a snack from a vending machine. I am unashamed to admit that if available, my hard-earned quarters go directly to A37 (that is where the KitKat bar was located at my previous job.) This recipe combines the flavors of that wonderful snack with coffee, and ice cream resulting in one of the most delicious milkshakes I have ever encountered! Enjoy, and try not to hum that jingle. I dare you!
• 1 cup of coffee – Belgian Chocolate is a great choice.
• 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream
• 20 crushed butter crackers
• 1/3 cup butter
• 1/3 cup sugar
• 1/3 cup brown sugar
• 1/2 cup crushed graham crackers
• 2/3 cup chocolate chips
• 2 and 1/2 tablespoons peanut butter
• 2/3 cup milk
• 2 -3 ounces vodka (optional) and depending on how strong you would like your drink)
1) To create a deconstructed KitKat, melt the butter, sugars, and half your milk in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and allow it to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
2) Crumble the crushed graham crackers and butter crackers into the mixture and continue heating for 5 additional minutes.
3) In a separate pan melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter together. Add this to the first mixture.
4) Pour this delicious concoction into a container and chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
5) Once chilled combine your deconstructed KitKat bar in a blender with the coffee, the remaining milk, and the ice cream.
6) If you would like to make this a boozy shake, add your vodka now.
7) Blend until smooth.
8) Top with whipped cream and chocolate chips. Depending on your glass size, this recipe will make 2-3 shakes.
