Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: Sweet, nutty, salty, and chocolaty. Doesn't get much tastier than that! Texture: The milkshake is frothy and thick with little chunks of crunchy pretzel throughout. Ease: Ridiculously easy. Pros: One of the best milkshakes I've ever had! Cons: Only for special occasions. Would I make this again? Oh yeah.

Milkshakes. A drink that must have come straight from heaven. It’s sooooo good, but also so bad! When I do enjoy a milkshake, it better be worth the indulgence. Anyone else think that way?

Recently Jared and I had an amazing dinner at the new Hopdoddy Burger Bar here in Phoenix. Incredible Parmesan truffle fries, ridiculously amazing burgers, and milkshakes. Yep, that’s where I got the idea for this Nutella Chocolate Covered Pretzel Milkshake. I can’t always take credit for genius-level sweet ideas…

I took the Nutella Chocolate Covered Pretzel Milkshake idea and added more chocolate, specifically in the form of chocolate ice cream. As a 100% chocoholic, I’m always finding ways to add more chocolate to everything.

Instead of using vanilla ice cream, like most shakes do, I used chocolate. But honestly, you could use whatever you want! Chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut…. you could even go crazy and add more flavor with coffee or peanut butter ice cream! The optionals are limitless.

If you want to go completely homemade on this, I have a recipe for Homemade Nutella here and a full video tutorial on How to Make Ice Cream without a Machine here. And of course, if you’re going to garnish with whipped cream, it better be homemade!

For the milkshake:

  • 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 1 1/2 cups ice cream (chocolate, vanilla, or hazelnut)
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk (or heavy cream)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate covered pretzels

For topping:

  • Whipped cream
  • Nutella
  • Crushed chocolate covered pretzels

Directions

  1. Add all of the milkshake ingredients into the bowl of a blender and blend until just combined.
  2. Pour into a glass. Top with whipped cream. Drizzle with Nutella and sprinkle with crushed chocolate covered pretzels. Serve with a wide straw or spoon.

Recipe Notes

The sweetened condensed milk adds unbelievable richness, but feel free to use heavy cream instead. My favorite chocolate covered pretzels are the ones from Trader Joe's!
