I’ve wanted to create a monstrous milkshake recipe for months, ever since I started following Black Tap on Instagram. If you’re not familiar, it’s a restaurant in New York City that serves the most amazing, over-the-top milkshakes. These things are so massive, so whimsical, so exploding with dessert products of every conceivable variety, you’d think they were designed by Willy Wonka himself. I mean, these people put whole caramel apples and slices of pie on top of their milkshakes. In the words of Liz Lemon on 30 Rock, “I want to go to there.”

So, I finally got around to making my own version of a mega milkshake with lots of SugarHero glam. (Because we can’t let anything be too simple around here, right? Giant Rose Cake, I am looking in your direction.).

Mine starts with a rich and creamy chocolate-peanut butter milkshake, with chocolate syrup drizzled inside the glass for a pretty striped appearance. The outside of the glass is coated with a layer of goodies including crushed peanut butter Oreos, mini peanut butter cups, and chopped peanuts. Finally, it’s topped with goodies like whipped cream, more peanut butter cups, more chocolate syrup, cookie pieces, and even a whole chocolate-peanut butter cupcake!

I know that on first glance this milkshake seems like the opposite of “simple,” but because it’s made entirely with things you can buy from the store, it literally took me about 5 minutes to put together, tops. The hardest part was not eating all of the ingredients before it was assembled! I love how flexible and customizable it is—just about anything goes when it comes to creating an epic milkshake. Raid your snack cupboard, trot down the aisle of the supermarket, stop by your local bakery, and get inspired by your favorite flavors or colors to make it one-of-a-kind.

It was really fun to take a break from constructing complicated cakes to focus on a simple (but still show stopping!) recipe. These milkshakes are something we’ll be making as a family for family night, because my 4-year old son can basically construct his own, with minimal help from us. (And on that note, it was SO fun to see his eyes widen and light up when he saw these for the first time! They blew his little mind.) If you love this recipe, don’t forget to check out my Doughnut Ice Cream Sundaes; they are another EASY showstopper.

These fun milkshakes have the sweet and salty flavor of pretzels mixed right in. You can use homemade chocolate dipped pretzels or store bought, and be sure to save a few for garnishing the top!

  • Combine the chocolate ice cream, milk, and creamy peanut butter in a blender, and blend until smooth.
  • Spread chocolate frosting on the outside of your milkshake glasses, coming down 2-3 inches from the top. Cover the frosting with a layer of chopped Oreos, miniature peanut butter cups, and chopped peanuts.
  • Drizzle the chocolate syrup down the inside of the glasses in streaks.
  • Pour the milkshake into the prepared glasses. Top with a thick layer of whipped cream. Skewer the cupcakes through straws, and put them on top of the whipped cream. Finish by decorating the cupcakes with additional goodies like more peanuts, cookies, peanut butter cups, and a final drizzle of chocolate syrup. Serve and enjoy immediately.

  1. Oh, my gosh, I’ve never seen such a thing! LOVE this epic milkshake and the options for tweaks are endless. No wonder your little guy was in awe 🙂

    1. Haha, thanks Liz! Definitely check out Black Tap’s instagram for more insanity. My little guy has been spoiled for all other (normal) milkshakes from now on!

  2. Wow, Elizabeth! These milkshakes are outstanding!! I also love customizable recipes; especially ones that are easy but look like a million bucks! You may have outdone yourself with this one, but I know you’ll keep surprising us with your amazingly creative desserts! 🙂

    1. Stephanie, you are so sweet! Thanks so much. I feel like everyone needs to keep a few easy-but-fancy ideas in their back pocket for dessert emergencies. 🙂

  3. What the whaaaaaa?! You had me the moment you stuck that cupcake on the straw! This looks so amazingly decadent, and I can totally understand how hard it must have been not to eat the supplies along the way!

    1. Haha! Skewered cupcakes are going to be all the rage, mark my words. 😉 And more than a few of the mini pb cups didn’t make it to the milkshake stage…hard to say why… *innocent whistling*

  4. Good lord that is one decadent, over the top milkshake lol! I’m liking the idea of the new Hershey’s with all the nasties taken out. Being in the UK, it’s not commonly used and I’m afraid I’ve never liked the Hersey’s kisses I’ve tried but I imagine this Simply syrup would taste much better. And that milkshake looks divine! So divine, I’m off to the gym as I fear I’m gaining weight just looking at it haha 😉

    1. Yes, Hershey’s definitely tastes different from milk chocolate in the UK! I think the syrup is more of a traditional “chocolate” taste, you might enjoy it! And it’s nice to have such a short and simple ingredient list.

  5. HOW WHY WHEN WHERE?! OMG I must have this milkshake ASAP! what! all the perfect ingredients in one, i made oreo smoothies once and they were the bomb! so can’t wait to see this combo

  6. Seriously, this is the most mouth-watering milkshake I have ever seen. So indulgent and heavenly delicious.
