Black Forest Milkshake


What can  I  whip up with the extra cherry ice cream that was left behind after making the ice cream sandwiches. Not that I have to , but felt like it!

The combination of sweet cherries soaked in cherry brandy ,dark chocolate cake and  light whipped cream is such a  classic combination! Kirshwasser , a cherry brandy  made from distilling dark tart cherries , is from the region of Black Forest in Germany and hence the name of the cake!


No-Fuss cherry ice cream – 1 1/2 cups

3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup milk

1 teaspoon cherry brandy, such as Kirschwasser

sweetened whipped cream

1 maraschino cherry, to garnish


Add ice cream, chocolate chips, milk and brandy together into a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy .  Pour into a tall glass , top with whipped cream and cherry .Serve immediately.

Makes 1 shake
