Tips

This recipe is one of the easiest that you’ll ever make, so there aren’t a lot of tips here. In fact, we only have two. However, they’re important, so be sure to give them a read.

Magic Shell – Magic Shell is the preferred chocolate syrup for this recipe. As it gets cold, it hardens. When it’s used in this shake, it adds a thicker texture to the milkshake.

Serve Immediately – This isn’t a frozen drink, so serve it as soon as you make it for maximum flavor and the best texture.
