NATIONAL CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE DAY
September 12, 2017
It is one of the most important days of the year, where we can all happily drink chocolate shakes together, hand in hand, shake in shake. Happy National Chocolate Milkshake Day!
Smooth, frothy, rich, and sweet — aren’t chocolate milkshakes just the best? Those are just a few of the words that give us reason to celebrate. The first reference to a milkshake appeared in a British newspaper in 1885, and 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!
