Black Tap CrazyShake Copycat Recipe
To make our Black Tap CrazyShake copycat recipe, you’ll need:
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Hot Fudge
- Caramel Sauce
- M&M Candies
- Chocolate Frosting
- Whipped Cream
- Sugar Daddy Sucker
- Pretzel Rods
- Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups
- Fancy or Decorative Straw
- Milk or Cream
- Milkshake Glass
First, you’ll want to start by frosting the rim of the milkshake glass with chocolate frosting. You can choose how much you want to put on. However, I covered mine about two inches down from the top of the glass.
After this, you’ll want to place the M&M’s candy on top of the frosting. I’ve found the easiest way to do this is to roll the glass in M&M’s. But, you can choose how you’d like your CrazyShake to look.
Since Black Tap Burgers and Beer is coming to Downtown Disney, I thought I would add a hidden Mickey to my milkshake. To do this, I created ears from chocolate caramel peanut clusters. All I did was take a triangular slice from two of them and slid them on the glass. You’ll have instant Mickey ears!
You can add candy to the outside of the glass by putting additional frosting on the backside and sticking it on. The more treats you put on, the more authentic it will be!
When you are satisfied with how it looks, it’s time to start with the actual milkshake! First, you’ll want to warm up about 1/8 cup of hot fudge and drizzle it along the walls of the glass. If you’d like, you can also do a layer of caramel too.
I decided to make a basic milkshake out of vanilla ice cream and whole milk. To do this, put about four giant scoops of ice cream in your blender. Then, add about 2 tablespoons of milk and blend it. To create a great milkshake, you’ll want to make sure it’s nice and soft. The better the ice cream, the better the milkshake. So, make sure to choose your favorite, high-quality brand.
Once the milkshake is ready, you need to pour the milkshake into the glass. After, put on a nice whip cream mountain on top of the ice cream. Then, you’ll want to drizzle it with more caramel and hot fudge sauce. To top it all off, stick in some pretzel rods and place the Sugar Daddy sucker on top.
Doesn’t this CrazyShake look Disney worthy? I think so!
You can either eat the chocolate CrazyShake with a spoon or with a straw. However you do it, this CrazyShake is sure to be a hit with your kids, family and friends!
