Sure, anyone can throw some ice cream and a little milk into a blender. But if you take the time to dress up recipes like this Cookie Dough Milkshake, you’ll be in for a decadent treat that’s completely worth the brain freeze!

The trick is to roll the rim of the glass in chocolate syrup, then use the sticky chocolate to add anything your heart desires. I recommend tiny chocolate chips and chopped pecans. It only takes a few minutes, and the result is so worth it. The little bites of cookie dough in the milkshake are like the cherry (or, in this case, the Oreo) on top! Make this special shake for your kids and pair it with a kid-friendly meal like air fryer chicken tenders and fries!

  • Chocolate chips — Look for very small ones, so they stick to the rim of the glass easily.

HOW TO MAKE OREO AND COOKIE DOUGH MILKSHAKE

  1. Chop the pecans, then add the pecans and chocolate chips to a small plate and set aside.
  2. Blend the milk and ice cream in a blender until smooth and thick, then pop it in the freezer until ready to assemble.
  3. Coat the rim and outer edge of the serving glass with chocolate syrup.
  4. Roll the rim in the chocolate chips and chopped nuts.
  5. Roll the chocolate chip cookie dough into small balls. If desired, attach a few to the rim of the glass.
  6. Pour the milkshake into the glass
  7. Add remaining cookie dough balls and stir to distribute them evenly.
  8. Garnish with whipped cream, more chocolate chips, more chocolate syrup, and an Oreo cookie if desired.
  9. Serve and enjoy!

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Get all the garnishes ready ahead of time so that your milkshake is ready to go once mixed.
  • Turn this into a milkshake bar! Set out all the fixings and let people decorate their own cookie dough milkshakes.
  • Switch things up! Use vanilla ice cream, cookie dough ice cream, or your favorite flavor.

SATISFY YOUR SWEET TOOTH

Looking for more indulgent desserts that are as pretty to look at as they are fun to eat? I love how the brown butter glaze looks when drizzled over these Apple Blondies. If you want to cause instant mouth-watering, just set a tray of Turtle Brownies with their sticky caramel topping in front of any crowd. When serving a crowd, the sweet and spicy glaze over this Pumpkin Chocolate Cake adds gorgeous texture and flavor. And, of course, I’m always a sucker for Chocolate-Caramel Cookies with their drizzle of rich caramel and crunchy Skor Bits on top!

VARIATIONS FOR YOUR COOKIE DOUGH MILKSHAKE

There are endless ways you could make this recipe. From the base to mix-ins to the rim decorations to the garnishes on top, go ahead and have some fun with it!

  • Use vanilla ice cream instead, or try something totally different, like butter pecan, butterscotch, or mint!
  • Try a cookies and cream milkshake! Roughly chop a few Oreos, then mix them into the shake after you pour it into the glass. If you have any smaller pieces of Oreo cookies, use them to decorate the rim.
  • For the holiday season, try adding a drop or two of peppermint extract for a festive flavor twist. Put some candy canes in a zip lock bag, crush them with a rolling pin, then use them to decorate the rim. Don’t forget to garnish with a candy cane on top!
