Soooo…..things escalated quickly.
It started off so innocently. I just wanted to make a batch of homemade no churn cookie butter ice cream.
I made the cookie butter ice cream and it was really everything I wanted and more. It was a first attempt at making ice cream without an ice cream maker and I felt pretty proud of myself, not going to lie.
But then I got to thinking…how could I make cookie butter ice cream even more epic?!?
The answer, like most answers, was staring me right in the face.
I’ve had success with bourbon milkshakes (you should probably file this bourbon pumpkin pie shake for football tailgates) before and had a sneaking hunch that the bourbon would mix quite nicely with the sweet blend of cookie butter and ice cream.
And I was right. And I could have left it at that: a cookie butter bourbon milkshake.
I get excited about something and go full steam ahead with it.
I could never be accused of being less than enthusiastic about an idea. It’s gung-ho or bust!
So I added shavings from Trader Joe’s Uncured Bacon Ganache Bar.
I was left without supervision and this is what happened.
It just got real.
Please don’t ever leave me alone, okay?
Or maybe you should because this is a pretty baller boozy shake.
