The milkshake

Yes, there is actually a recipe for "Trashcan Milkshakes". I have added it to the bottom of this post. For those of you who have never had the opportunity to partake...well, you have missed out on one of the greatest delicacies EVER. It ranks right up there with caviar and champagne. Why they don't have it on the menus in 5-star eating establishments is a mystery to me.

For those of you wanting to make it at home, here is how we did it.

It feeds about 180, so if you are going to make it, make sure it is family night and everyone is at home.

Or it is neighborhood night and you are bringing the dessert.

Get 16 gallons of chocolate ice cream and throw it down on cookie sheets.

Cut the ice cream into chunks. You'll know they are small enough if you start to lose the feeling in your fingertips.

Pour 16 gallons of ice cream chunks and 14 gallons of milk into trashcan. Don't worry, it was brand new and cleaned out.

Using trolling motor or drill with grout mixing attachment, stir until desired consistency is reached.

Pour milkshake mixture into pitchers and serve.

And enjoy!!!!

I've been lurking for a long time, but couldn't pass up a comment on the trash can milkshake. I think this may have been my favorite part of being at Tahkodah! Your girls are absolutely precious! Dallas, your entries crack me up and make me smile so big!
