Eats // Peppermint Eggnog Milkshake Shots

peppermint eggnog recipe

I never deny my love affair with peppermint flavored things, but during the month of December, I let my peppermint flag fly high. Literally. To mark the occasion, I decided to combine this reader favorite recipe with the holiday season to create peppermint eggnog milkshake shots that are perfectly petit enough to fit any party… unless the big and tall section is more your style, in which case you can turn this into a punch bowl recipe.

Ingredients:

  • Peppermint ice cream
  • Peppermint white chocolate bark
  • Crushed peppermint
  • Eggnog
  • Sugar water
Blend together 2 parts peppermint ice cream to one part eggnog. Rim the glasses with with crushed peppermint by dabbing them with sugar water and dipping them in peppermint. Fill your glasses with the milkshake mixture and place them in the freezer until you’re ready to serve. Break the peppermint bark into halves and place them on top just before serving.

Salted Caramel Ice Cream Cake Shots recipe

Health nuts everywhere will roll over in their graves about this one. Lucky for you, I don’t qualify for such categories. Instead, I have 4 words for you: cupcakes, ice cream, caramel, salt*. Sweet & salty, need I say more?

*I thought five words might be a bit excessive but I would like to note striped straws, too. I’m currently obsessed. I blame BHLDN, they did this to me.
