Fat Tuesday Desserts!

In honor of Fat Tuesday, I have two indulgent recipes for you to try out, and they still are under 30 minutes and only take 5 ingredients or less!!

The first one is a Caramel Cookies and Cream milkshake.

1/4 cup cream
1/4 cup caramel sauce
1/4 cup crushed chocolate cookies
1/2 cup milk

  1. Whip the cream 
  2. Add in caramel sauce and whip it again 
  3. Add cookies, mix 
  4. Add milk, mix 
If you want a creamier or lighter milkshake, increase or decrease the amount of cream/milk to make it to your liking. For example, if you want it lighter, decrease the amount of cream and add more milk instead. 

If you want a cookies and cream milk shake, just remove the caramel.
