Cupcake Milkshake with Chocolate Whipped Cream and Shayshay's Cupcakes Giveaway!

 Woohoo! Boy, do I love cupcakes and I am excited to announce that we have teamed up with ShayShay's Cupcakes here in Leesville to have a Cupcake Giveaway! Scroll down to the entry form below and complete the 3 required steps and you will be entered to WIN a DOZEN CUPCAKES of your CHOICE!
 To kick off our cupcake giveaway I thought I would share my recipe for a fun twist on a milkshake: a Cupcake Milkshake! I used my red velvet mini cupcakes leftover from my post yesterday on Red Velvet Cake in a Jar. I top my milkshake with pillowy Chocolate Whipped Cream and it is to die for!  Enjoy! 
 

 Ingredients:

Makes 2 16oz milkshakes
  •  6 large scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup milk (whole milk will make it the creamiest and richest)
  • 5-6 mini unfrosted cupcakes (or 2 regular size), your choice of flavor
  •   For my Red Velvet Cake recipe click here
For the Chocolate Whipped Cream:
  • 1 cup (half a pint) of heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar (or you can sub brown sugar)
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder

Directions:

  1. For the whipped cream: Place your mixing bowl and beater in the freezer until you are ready to make your whipped cream. 
  2. Pour all 3 ingredients into the cold mixing bowl and mix on high until stiff peaks form. 
  3. Refridgerate until ready to use.
  4. For the Milkshake: in a blender combine ice cream, milk, and cupcakes (you may have to do this in batches depending on the size and strength of your blender). 
  5. Mix and pulse until creamy. I do not completely liquify as I like creaminess and some texture of the cupcake to still be present. 
  6. Pour into cold glasses and top with Chocolate Whipped Cream.
  7. For a fun touch, if you have any mini cupcakes left you can frost them and push a straw through them and add one on each glass!
 
I am on a cupcake kick this last week. These gorgeous cupcakes from ShayShay's Cupcakes were what I used for Ava's Cake Smash Birthday Pics! Rich chocolate cake with creamy white chocolate frosting! The ladies at ShayShay's sure do know how to bake up a ton of flavor in a small little cake! Be sure to enter the contest below and visit them on Facebook >>> here <<<
 My mini red velvet cupcakes are too cute! 
I added cinnamon-sugar frosting to half as a garnish for the Milkshake!
Find the Red Velvet Cake recipe here
 
 For the Chocolate Whipped Cream: simply add heavy cream,
 powdered sugar, and cocoa powder to a cold mixing bowl and mix on high until stiff peaks form.
 
 A few simple ingredients mixed together make a seriously delicious shake!
 
 Throw into a blender, mix until you get the consistency you want (I like it a little chunky!), and pour into a cold glass.
 
 Top with mounds of Chocolate Whipped Cream and garnish with a frosted mini cupcake (simply push through your straw).
