This Peppermint Chip Milkshake is a copycat recipe for Chick-Fil-A Peppermint Shake. So you can enjoy it at home…even on a Sunday.
My family loves Milk and I have been fortunate to work with them earlier this year with these amazing Nutella Mini Pies. They paired perfectly with milk and they were so delicious. Since I love using mason jars for serving drinks (these football mason jars were such a hit!) I immediately knew I wanted to create a Peppermint Chip Milk Shake. This peppermint chip milkshake is inspired by a milkshake from my favorite fast food restaurant, Chick Fil A. I think I might even like it even more than the original!

Growing up my mom was FAMOUS for her milkshakes. As a kid, I did not realize that it was not normal to have a milkshake machine in your home. Milkshakes were such a big part of our lives that when my parents remodeled their kitchen they put in a special cabinet that pulled out for the perfect milkshake making area. We called them “Momma Momma Milkshakes”. We do not have a milkshake machine so we used a blender which worked well especially with breaking up the candy canes. When I made them the first time I crushed the candy canes in a plastic bag. The next time I made them I put them in whole and let the blender do all the work. I love being able to cut out unnecessary steps and have less items to clean.
Peppermint Chip Milkshake
To make the shakes feel extra special I used my “secret” ingredient, M&M’S®to decorate the glass. I also made some simple chocolate bark with M&M’S® White Peppermint. I love making chocolate bark. It is so easy to make and there are so many varieties. Simply heat chocolate or candy melts in a microwave or double boiler. Then pour the melted chocolate onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Add additional colors if you want and swirl them together. Finally add your toppings and place in the freezer or refrigerator until they are hard.

Pro Tip: I used a combination of M&M’S® Holiday and M&M’S® Brand Minis Milk Chocolate Baking Bits
