This decadent Double Chocolate Fudge Shake has bits of cookie dough in it for a delicious shake that’s sure to please!
In this decadent dessert recipe I show you how to make your own frozen cookie dough bites. Then, I put them into a double fudge chocolate shake. Sound amazing? It is!
My summer road trip involved a 10 hour drive with just me and my two kids. About 8 hours into it I saw a sign for Dairy Queen and the exit looked straight forward to navigate. There were no excuses. I needed some ice cream. They had a cookie dough shake with chocolate ice cream and fudge. It was practically screaming my name! I gave the kids a couple of bites, but quickly realized it was going to be too messy for the car and we needed to keep moving. So, I handed them some chocolate teddy grahams and kept the shake all to myself. It was glorious! It stuck in my mind for days. After a week of taste bud torture, I finally made my way back to DQ for another. Mmmmm. When I finally got home I knew I needed to kick the $6 shake habit and make it myself. Oh baby, it’s even better at home! Making your own little cookie dough balls is the key. Homemade cookie dough balls are way better than most you find in store bought ice cream. You’re using real butter and don’t have to worry about preservatives, how could it not be better? This recipe makes for one heck of a decadent dessert. I’m seriously in love!
Double Chocolate Fudge Cookie Dough Shake
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 3/4 cup brown sugar tightly packed
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup
- mini chocolate chips
- 1.5 quarts chocolate ice cream
- 1 to 2 cups milk
- 1/2 cup
- hot fudge sauce
- In a medium-size mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to beat together butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt.
- Stir in flour until completely incorporated, then stir in chocolate chips.
- Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Drop teaspoon-size balls onto the tray. Roll them if you feel fancy and are going for looks 🙂 Put the tray in the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes.
- Make your shake by combining chocolate ice cream and milk in a blender. If you are using a high power blender you’ll be able to get away with less milk for a thicker shake. I like to add as little milk as possible for a nice thick, DQ-style shake.
- Swirl a couple tablespoons of hot fudge sauce into each shake and a handful of cookie dough balls. Serve immediately.
