Today is Chocolate Milkshake Day!

Oh yes, and as such it is certain to be a sweet day for sure! What could be a better way to bring a big smile to the sweet faces of your grandchildren than to give them a tasty, creamy chocolate milkshake?
 On line I found this information about Chocolate Milkshake Day . . . "Today is National Chocolate Milkshake Day! Smooth, frothy, rich, and sweet are just a few of the words which describe today's reason to celebrate. Did you know the first reference to a milkshake appeared in a British newspaper in 1885? The original recipe called for a shot of whiskey! Milkshakes were popular at soda fountain counters in the early 1900s and are now a mainstay at ice cream shops, diners, and fast food restaurants throughout the country.
To celebrate National Chocolate Milkshake Day, enjoy a delicious milkshake for dessert tonight! To make your own at home, combine 2 cups of chocolate ice cream, 2 bars of dark chocolate candy (diced), and 1/2 cup whipped cream in a blender. Garnish with more cream and chocolate shavings. Enjoy!"
 My personal favorite recipe for chocolate milk shake is simple . . . Put ice cream - vanilla or chocolate - in a blender, add milk to cover, add chocolate syrup - a few good squirts will do it - add a couple tablespoons of peanut butter and mix! Pour into tall glasses, top with whipped cream and enjoy! You can make this shake even better by adding some banana!
What is your favorite recipe for a chocolate milk shake? Whether you make one or head to your favorite restaurant to get one, enjoy!
