Chocolate Bourbon Butter Pecan Milkshakes

Is there anything that sounds more southern and delicious than Chocolate Bourbon Butter Pecan Milkshakes? If you’re staying in this year, these are the perfect way to celebrate!

What do you get when you blend your favorite bourbon, chocolate, and butter pecan ice cream together? An epic boozy Chocolate Bourbon Butter Pecan Milkshakes that tastes like a certain famous pie, that’s what!

You don’t have to be a Kentuckian or a Derby fan to enjoy this icy dessert. Sure, it’s perfect if you’re planning on staying at home and watching the races from the comfort of your couch, but I could enjoy one of these bad boys any day of the year (sans the bourbon at the moment, of course).

While it may be a bummer that only one of us got to have to bourbon version, without it, this is actually the perfect pregnancy treat. Now, if I only had a pickle to go with it… j/k. To be honest, I haven’t had many pregnancy “cravings”.

I mean, I have cravings all the time, not just the last 7 months so I guess I’m a weird one. I do have to say that everything cold and sweet has been my favorite. Fruit, La Croix, ice cream, you name it.

As for these milkshakes, you have to try them to believe them. The chocolate and butter pecan ice creams are absolutely perfect together. This Derby, step outside of the box and whip up this frosty dessert that’s ready for the winner’s circle.
