Snickers and Pretzel Milkshake

Trick or...milkshake?

The mountain of leftover candy that Halloween leaves behind is a golden opportunity for creative cooks to feed their sweet tooth after the trick-or-treating ends. While we all love a fun-size candy bar (or six) straight up, Nina’s idea to blend Snickers bars with pretzels and ice cream is a match-made in salty / sweet heaven. Endlessly customizable, the humble milkshake is the perfect vehicle for your experiments in candy bar re-purposing. We think Reese’s Cups or Kit Kats would also make a happy match with pretzels – and the possibilities are endless. Pick your poison and get blending.

I'm a big fan of veggies and being healthy, but I'm an even bigger fan of mixing up butter, flour, and sugar and seeing what happens. Baking from scratch is incredibly rewarding, and there's nothing like the smell of freshly baked bread or sinking your teeth into a warm-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookie. I love to make simple recipes, so I know I never have to wait too long for a sweet treat!

Nina is the humble and inspiring voice behind Ambrosia Baking. As a college student with a passion for baking, her recipes are a labor of love and are easily recognized by their picturesque nature and creative culinary twists. We love Nina’s use of both chocolate and tart fruits in many of her traditional cupcake and cookie recipes. She experiments with fruits like cranberries and lemons and isn’t afraid to add chocolate into almost everything.

Ambrosia Baking is a site for experienced bakers and budding beginners alike who want to create something that not only tastes good, but looks amazing.

For the Creamiest Milkshakes, Blend on Low Speed

When blending milkshakes, forget the higher speeds. A lower speed will blend the ingredients together while still keeping the milkshake thick.
