Buckeye Milkshake

In January, I finally visited Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream’s new Atlanta location over on Howell Mill Rd in Westside Provisions. Yum !!  btw – I hear they are opening a second location at Krog Street Market, in Inman Park, this summer.

Anyway, I tried two flavors – ‘Goat Cheese with Red Cherries’, which was very good and definitely gave me ideas for future dessert posts – and ‘Buckeye State’, peanut butter & dark chocolate, enough said.  Well, I haven’t been able to get that Buckeye State out of my mind, so I decided to try to duplicate it in a milkshake.  I still haven’t gotten the flavor exactly down pat (gosh, I might have to visit again for another taste test!), but what I did come up with is still pretty darn tasty.

Here’s my version of a peanut butter milkshake with grated bittersweet chocolate and… wait for it… a dash of salt. (How unexpected!) This recipe serves one two. Add whipped cream and extra grated chocolate to turn this beverage  into a dessert.
