One sure way to make party food special is to take something everyone’s familiar with and make it smaller and cuter. : ) Take these miniature milkshake shooters – they’re teeny-tiny and jazzed up with toppings, too!

I love this idea because these miniature milkshake shooters are just the right size for wee ones, and of course grown-ups will swoon over them, too! To make them, you rim tall shot glasses with chocolate and sprinkles, put the glasses in the freezer for a bit to firm up the chocolate, then pour in your just-blended vanilla shake. Garnish with marshmallows and bits of waffle cones, and add a pretty paper straw for the perfect finishing touch!

Supplies You’ll Need

• mini parfait or shot glasses
• an ice cream scoop or spoon
• a blender or shake maker
• semi sweet baking chocolate
• sprinkles in desired color
• striped straws
• waffle or sugar cones

To rim your glasses you’ll need to melt about 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips in a double boiler until the chocolate is a liquid. Rim your glasses with the melted chocolate and cover in sprinkles (the same way you would rim a margarita or bloody mary glass). Pop them into the freezer for 5-10 minutes so the chocolate can harden up. Note that if the chocolate on the rim is too thick it will start to run down the glass and not look so pretty.

From there you’re ready to make your milkshake. Blend about 1 cup of vanilla ice cream, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and a dollop of marshmallow fluff. Then, pour the milkshake into your prepared glasses. Remember to pour nice and carefully! If your milkshake touches the sprinkles on the rims, the color will start to run, the milkshake will turn tye dye, and the sprinkles will start to lose their colors.

As a final touch, pop in your straws, then garnish with some marshmallows and a piece of waffle cone.
