Indulge yourself in this homemade S’mores Freakshake, an irresistible, delicious, and fun to eat treat!
With summer just around the corner, I’m always looking for fun twists on classic recipes. Something that will stand out and make my guests go, “Wow!”
It doesn’t get more classic than a chocolate milkshake. On hot summer days, my family would jump in the car and head down to the Frosty Tip. If I didn’t get a cone, I definitely got a shake. It was the perfect summer treat.
Well, this summer, that classic chocolate shake is getting a freaky twist! Picture your favorite milkshake topped with chocolate dipped graham crackers and marshmallows, plus a mini slice of s’mores pie!
My S’mores Freakshake is the ultimate summer treat. And the best part is that you can easily make it at home!
So, what exactly is a freakshake? It’s basically a combination dessert and drink, and it’s totally over-the-top! It’s a milkshake topped with treats. The original freakshake was created at Pâtissez cafe in Canberra, Australia. After taking Instagram by storm, they’re catching on around the world.
My S’mores Freakshake was inspired by two summer favorites: s’mores and milkshakes! I’ve wanted to make a homemade freakshake for a while now, and after I tried Edwards S’mores Pie recently, I couldn’t get the idea of topping a chocolate freakshake with a mini piece of this pie!
If you love s’mores, then you need to try Edwards S’mores Pie … it’s so good! When I picked it up at Walmart, I couldn’t resist getting an Edwards Key Lime Pie, too (my husband’s fave). I love to surprise him, and Edwards pies are perfect for any occasion whether you are celebrating a birthday, work event, graduation, retirement, or just because. If you’re already a fan of Edwards you might notice the package has new look, but it’s the same decadent taste as always!
We enjoyed every bite of those pies’ fresh from the oven taste and their cookie crumb crusts, velvety layers of sweet cream, and decadent toppings. Yum! And with each bite, I kept thinking back to that freakshake idea … I had to try it!
How to Make a S’mores Freakshake
So let’s talk about this S’mores Freakshake! It really is easier to make than you might think. Especially since the piece de resistance (that awesome s’mores pie) is premade.
You’ll start this easy freakshake recipe by making your components, starting with the glass. A mason jar works perfectly.
You’ll dip the rim in melted chocolate and coat it with graham cracker crumbs. Then, you’ll drizzle a little chocolate on the inside of the glass.
This simple step gives your homemade freakshake a super fun presentation!
Next, you’ll dip the graham crackers and marshmallows in the chocolate, too. Do the graham crackers last, just in case you get any crumbs in the chocolate. Once the chocolate has set, thread the marshmallows on a long bamboo skewer (about 8 inches).
After you make the thick chocolate milkshake, it’s time for the fun part … assembling your homemade freakshake!
I was kind of nervous about my first one, but it was really easy. Start by filling your mason jar with the milkshake, then top it very generously with whipped cream (at least 2-inches above the glass). The whipped cream helps to hold everything together, so don’t skimp.
Add the chocolate dipped marshmallows and graham crackers, and last but not least, a mini slice of pie. Don’t forget the straw, and you’ll probably need a spoon, too!
Of course, the best part is eating this S’mores Freakshake … it’s so delicious and totally over-the-top decadent! One of these chocolate freakshakes is probably enough to serve two, but I won’t blame you if you don’t want to share!
- 3 graham crackers
- 1 (3.5-oz) dark chocolate candy bar
- 6 marshmallows
- 1 Edwards S'mores Pie
- 4 cups chocolate ice cream
- 1 cup chocolate milk
- whipped cream (I used premade.)
- 2 (16-oz) mason jars
- 2 (8-inch) bamboo skewers
- 2 straws
Using a serrated knife, gently cut one of the graham crackers into 4 quarters.
Place the other 2 graham crackers in a zip top bag, then crush roughly with a rolling pin (not too fine, you want some small chunks.) Transfer to a small bowl.
Chop candy bar, then place in a small bowl. Microwave in 20 second increments, stirring well in between, until melted.
Dip the rim of a mason jar in the chocolate. Let excess drip off.
Gently roll rim in crushed graham crackers, rotating to coat outside of glass.
Using a small spoon, pour a little chocolate on the inside of the rim and allow to drip down.
Repeat process with other mason jar. Refrigerate both jars until chocolate is just set, about 5 to 10 minutes.
Dip tops of marshmallows in chocolate. Tap off excess chocolate (you can let a little drip down the marshmallow), then place on a foil lined baking sheet.
Swirl tops of graham cracker quarters in chocolate. Gently tap off excess, then transfer to baking sheet.
Chill graham crackers and marshmallows until chocolate is just set, about 5 to 10 minutes.
Once chocolate is set, thread 3 marshmallows on an 8-inch skewer. Repeat with remaining marshmallows and other skewer. Set aside.
Cut two mini slices of pie (about 1.5-inches at the widest end). Set aside.
Place ice cream and milk in a blender, then blend until combined, stirring a couple times to incorporate ingredients.
Divide milkshake between two mason jars.
Top milkshake with a generous amount of whipped cream. It should rise above the glass' rim by about 2 inches.
Add marshmallow skewer to back of glass at an angle.
Insert two chocolate-covered graham crackers (one in front of the other), slightly angled away from the marshmallows.
Top freakshakes with a mini pie slice, resting it on rim of the glass and the whipped cream. Garnish with a straw.
Serve freakshakes immediately. Enjoy!
