OK, I have no excuses for this one. It’s evilâ€”and oh-so-delicious.
It’s rich. It’s creamy. It’s packed with crushed Oreo cookies and laced with booze. It’s one part dessert and one part cocktail. (And kind of ridiculous. I can admit that.) It’s also one of my favorite treats.
One drink. Two straws.
Make one and share it with someone you really like. (Hey, Valentine’s Day is coming…)
After my Black & White Chocolate Chip Cookiesï¿½with crushed Oreos mixed into chocolate chip cookie doughï¿½this is my next favorite thing to do with Oreos.
Milkshake or frappe?
Here in Boston, we call this kind of drink a frappe. Closer to New York, where I grew up, they’re milkshakes.
A note on serving size
Now, you can make this in any size glass you like. If you use a substantially smaller glass, cut out one of the cookies.
If you follow the recipe as I’ve outlined it below, you’ll get a drink that’s still, well, drinkable. For a thicker milkshake that’s more like soft-serve, use more ice cream and less milk.
How to make a non-alcoholic Oreo Milkshake
I tend to like this as more of a cocktail-y type treat. That said, a non-alcoholic Oreo Cookie Milkshake is certainly yummy, too.
For a virgin version, omit both liqueurs and add a teaspoon or so of chocolate sauce.
Oreo & Irish-Cream Milkshake
Vanilla ice cream
1 shot of Irish cream liqueur
1 shot chocolate liqueur
3 Oreo cookies + 1 more for garnish
Makes a milkshake that fills a pint glass
Start with your favorite vanilla ice cream.
Pack a pint glass loosely with ice cream. (I mentioned that this isn’t diet food, right?)
Fill the glass almost to the top with milk.
Pour the contents of your glass (ice cream + milk) into your blender. Toss in the Irish cream liqueur, chocolate liqueur, and Oreo cookies.
Cap your blender and turn it on. Blend until the cookies are smashed to bits and the milkshake is smooth.
Pour back into your pint glass.
Make the Oreo cookie garnish
Take one of your Oreos and unscrew it.
With the back of a spoon or a knife, scrape the creme over to one side, like this:
Stick the cookie back together on the rim of the glass, with the blob of creme holding the two cookie halves together at the top.
I only had regular Oreos in the house, but I’d imagine this bit here with the cookie garnish would work even better with a Double Stuf Oreo.
Serve and enjoy! (Then go take a nap!)
