You know what they say--when life gives you extremely drippy ice cream cookie sandwiches, you make milkshakes.

They say that, right?

Oh so drippy.

Well, that's what I did, anyway. 

After I deemed the post-photoshoot cookie sandwiches "too messy to eat," I scraped out the ice cream and set aside the now soggy cookies. What to do? What to do? While my boyfriend struggled with consuming a salvaged cookie sandwich over the sink, I pondered.

Then, it came to me.


Duh.

Milkshakes.

And so it was, and it was good.

What I didn't think of: Kahlua. Wouldn't these be DIVINE with Kahlua? I think so. There's always next time!


"Mistake" Milkshakes: Salted Caramel Cookie Shakes
(Makes 1 milkshake)

-In a food processor or a ziplock bag with a rolling pin, pulverize cookies into crumbs. Dab a bit of chocolate sauce over the lip of your milkshake cups, and roll in cookie crumbs to coat. Sprinkle a bit of remaining crumbs in bottom of glass.

-In a blender, blend the milk, ice cream, and remaining cookie crumbs with a bit of chocolate syrup, to taste.

-Pour into glasses and garnish with more syrup.

  12. I am now officially replacing the lemons version, with "when life gives you soggy ice cream sandwiches, make milkshakes".
