Bourbon and Snickers Milkshake

Boozy Snickers Milkshake

  • Author: Elyse Villa
  • Yield: 1 Serving (plus a little extra) 1x


Boozy, rich, sweet, and containing exactly ALL the dairy, this milkshake has it all!



For the caramel (makes 2C):

  • 3T unsalted butter (I used the cooled browned butter from the fat washing spoken about above)
  • 1C granulated sugar
  • 1/4C water
  • 3/4C heavy cream
  • 1/4t kosher salt

For the milkshake:

  • 4 scoops of vanilla ice cream (about 2C)
  • 1.52oz bourbon (I used the fat-washed version I talked about above)
  • 1/2C whole milk (skim milk works too)
  • 3T malted milk powder
  • 2T caramel, plus more for drizzling
  • 2T chunky peanut butter
  • Chocolate sauce for drizzling (I used store-bought)
  • Whipped cream for topping (optional)
  • 1 Snickers bar for garnish (optional)


Make the caramel:

  1. Add the butter, sugar, and water to a small saucepan and mix until the sugar is giving you a wet sand vibe. (If the sugar doesn’t look completely moistened, add an additional tablespoon of water.)
  2. Over medium heat, bring the mixture to a boil without stirring. (If you get antsy about stirring, you can give the pan a gentle swirl, but otherwise, hands-off!) We’re heating this until it becomes a dark honey color. Once you are happy with the color, take off the heat and immediately add the cream and salt. (Stand back, because it will steam.) Whisk everything together.
  3. Let cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge until you need it. For a minimum of 30 minutes.

Make the milkshake:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and malted milk powder until you no longer see any big chunks. Add the caramel and whisk again until it melts into the milk. We’re doing this so we don’t end up with bits of good stuff stuck to your blender.
  2. To your blender add the ice cream, peanut butter, bourbon, and milk mixture. Blend until it looks like everything is incorporated.
  3. To your glass, drizzle in some chocolate sauce. Pour in your milkshake and top with whipped cream, caramel, more chocolate sauce, and chopped-up bits of Snickers (if using).
