Start the New Year off right with these sprinkle milkshakes in mason jars. You can whip up your favorite shake in a blender with some milk and some ice cream, but take it up a notch with these chilled mason jars and rims full of rainbow sprinkles. Your kids’ faces will spread into wide smiles of delight when they see a little splash of whimsy added to theses glasses.
What You’ll Need:
Step One: Melt the white chocolate in a microwavable bowl on low/medium heat. I’ve used many melting chocolates and it’s hard not to overheat them and cause the consistency of the chocolate to become unusable. I tried these Ghirardelli white chocolate melting wafers this time and they worked perfectly. Smooth, creamy, and the chocolate is incredible! Take the mason jars and dip them into the melted chocolate. Have your sprinkles ready for the next step.
Step Two: Dip the melted chocolate rims into a bowl of your rainbow sprinkles. Swirl until the rim is completely covered.
Step Three: Put your mason jars in the fridge to speed up the cooling process. I didn’t realize that the rims would start to sink down (as seen below) but if I had put them in the freezer or refrigerator for a couple minutes I think it would have prevented this from happening.
Step Four: mix your milkshakes with your favorite ice cream flavor and milk. I like to use my Ninja blender to shake the ice cream so it becomes frothy and well incorporated. Pour into the chilled mason jar glasses and top with a straw.
Whether you’re staying in or going out for New Year’s these sprinkle milkshakes in mason jars will complete the celebration and bring festive cheer to every heart and hand. Happy 2020! May it bring you much peace, love, and joy as you say goodbye to 2019.
