Candy Corn Milkshake

One of my sweet readers wrote me about my red, white & blue shakes we made for July 4th & asked if I was creating any milkshakes for Halloween.  I immediately thought of candy corn & what a cute shake idea it would make!  I loved the way they turned out & they are so easy to make!




To make our candy corn shakes,  I started with a batch of homemade vanilla ice cream (you could use store bought ice cream as well).  Divide ice cream into 3 equal parts in 3 separate containers. Place the container with the plain vanilla back into the freezer. Mix up 1/3 of vanilla with yellow & the remaining 1/3 with orange gel color. Fill your glasses 1/3 full of yellow ice cream & place back in the freezer to set. Follow with 1/3 orange allowing each layer to set up in the freezer.  Fill the glass with the plain vanilla & top with whipped cream & sprinkles!  Enjoy!

Could you start with dark chocolate syrup at the bottom to simulate the black?

These look yummy!

Sounds great, but what if you used sherbert for the other colors...
