Do you love chocolate? Do you love ice cream? Do you love milkshakes? If you answered yes to these questions, then you have to try this recipe asap! It’s the best chocolate milkshake ever and it may just bring all the boys to the yard.
A good chocolate milkshake is super chocolatey, thick, and creamy. The great part about this recipe is that you can tailor it to your own likes. Like it on the thick side? Add less milk (or more ice cream). Do you prefer that you can drink it through a straw? Leave your ice cream out for a bit before you’re ready or add more milk.
No matter how you make it, there will be no shortage of chocolate flavor in this chocolate milkshake. I’m even going to show you how to level up your milkshake with two extra ingredients!
Before I share our chocolate milkshake recipe, let me share a few tips.
It’s super important for you to use whole milk ice cream and whole milk chocolate milk. While we tend to want to watch our calories if you’re going to splurge on a milkshake, go all the way!
Always put the chocolate milk in the blender before the ice cream. This will help it all blend together quicker.
If you decide to level up your milkshake, you’ll want to spread hazelnut spread or chocolate frosting on the top, outside of the glass, and roll it in sprinkles. It’s a super easy trick that makes your chocolate milkshake look super fancy!
Freeze your glasses at least an hour before you are ready to make your chocolate milkshakes. This will help them to not melt as quickly as they would in a room-temperature glass.
Why chocolate milk?
While you can use regular milk, using chocolate milk gives it even more chocolate flavor. And if you’re going to drink a chocolate milkshake, you want to make sure it’s as chocolatey as it can be!
How big is a scoop?
A scoop is usually around 1/2 cup, so you will be using approximately 2 1/2 cups of ice cream for this chocolate milkshake.
Do I have to share this chocolate milkshake?
Our recipe makes two decent-sized glasses. But if you don’t want to share with anyone, we won’t tell.
I’ve tried to show the steps in the photos above for you, to make it a bit easier to make the best chocolate milkshake ever.
Step 1: Spread either hazelnut spread or chocolate frosting around the rim of your frozen glass.
Step 2: Roll the top of the glass in sprinkles until it’s covered.
Step 3: Make your milkshake using the steps in the recipe below. Pour it into your glass, leaving just enough room at the top for the whipped cream.
Step 4: Add whipped cream (and any desired toppings) and enjoy!

You are right, the best chocolate milkshake ever! Such a great idea to use chocolate milk instead of normal milk, to give it that extra chocolate flavor. Perfect treat for a hot summer day, which seems to be all the time here in Phoenix!
Chocolate milkshakes like this are so awesome. I love that you use Bosco because that is a classic syrup that enhances any milkshake.
That looks absolutely amazing! I feel like whenever you make this, all the boys probably come to the yard. LOL
Not if my husband has anything to say about it 😉
