Candy season is upon us. Whether you’re buying it to stock your bowls, or waiting until the grocery stores to put those beautiful bags on clearance, your sweet tooth will still be rewarded.

Even before we get down to the dregs of our kids’ candy, there’s one undeniable truth.

Butterfinger Candy Milkshake

We’ve all been caught raiding our kids’ candy bags over the years. Sneaking our favorite chews out of them, figuring out a way to wheedle a couple more bits out later on.

Then there’s all those sugary sweet leftovers. The ones your kids don’t want. By that point, even you’re candied out and left trying to figure out what to do with them exactly.

They always end up being the same things too. Either Bit O Honeys or the little vanilla Tootsie Rolls. And then the butterfingers.

I don’t know what exactly it is about those things- but I love them! Lucky for me, too, at least until I’ve reached my limit. I don’t have a sweet tooth where I can just pop one after the other, but one bite- a little goes a long way, and they’re amazing. So what to do with them now, what to do…

Fun fact, all I craved when pregnant with you youngest son was Butterfinger Blizzards from Dairy Queen. My husband missed getting me there by like a two minute marker the night before we were due to deliver in the hospital the next morning.

Needless to say, there will never be another occasion in my life where I crave a Butterfinger Candy Milkshake, and leave it up to another person. Ever.

Naturally, I learned to make my own version- this creamy, yummy Buttferfinger Candy Milkshake.

Our recipe calls for full size candy bars, but (as the rest of the post suggests) you can easily sub the fun size versions found at Halloween. 

Quality vanilla ice cream and whole milk are churned together in a blender. You can use whatever blender you like, I prefer my Ninja. Once whipped and creamy, the candy bar pieces are added in and pulsed- just until mixed, but NOT pulverized.

The milkshakes are then poured into waiting glasses, topped with a dollop of whipped cream, and sprinkled generously with Butterfinger candy bar crumbs before serving. It’s the milkshake meant to sate any sweet tooth, and also a perfect way to use up those Halloween candy leftovers.

Whatever your lurch, whether being inundated with candy after a holiday, or it’s the night before you go into the hospital to deliver- never miss your fix again with our Butterfinger Candy Milkshakes.

  1. Well that’s a clever idea! Milkshakes all round then… the bits usually get melted and remoulded into something else, or binned! I know what to do with them now! Thanks for bringing these over to Fiesta Friday.
