Ingredients

3 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

20 chocolate wafer cookies, finely crushed

4 chocolate-covered caramels, such as Rolos

2 ounces red candy melts

2 pints vanilla ice cream

1/2 cup milk

1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract

3 to 4 drops green food coloring

Canned whipped cream, for serving

Directions

  1. For the Frankenshake: Melt the chocolate chips in a small bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir, then heat until fully melted, about another 30 seconds.
  2. Tip a pint glass or beer stein on its side. Using a toothpick, skewer or clean paintbrush, draw a mouth and eyes on the inside of the glass with the melted chocolate. (Add a few stitches to resemble a Frankenstein face.) Stand the glass upright and brush chocolate on the rim of the glass and about a quarter of the way down the outside of the glass in a zig-zag pattern to resemble the hairline. Press the crushed chocolate wafer cookies on the chocolate on the outside of the glass to coat. Put 2 dollops of chocolate on the sides of the glass where the bolts will be, then stick 2 of the chocolate-covered caramels on top and press to adhere. Place the glass in the freezer until the chocolate has hardened, about 10 minutes or up to overnight.  
  3. For the Bride-of-Frankenshake: Melt the candy melts in a small bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir, then heat until fully melted, about another 30 seconds.
  4. Tip a pint glass or beer stein on its side. Using a toothpick, skewer or clean paintbrush, draw red lips. Draw eyes on the inside of the glass using the melted chocolate. Stand the glass upright and brush chocolate on the rim of the glass and about a quarter of the way down the outside of the glass to resemble the hairline. Press the crushed chocolate wafer cookies on the chocolate on the outside of the glass to coat. Put 2 dollops of chocolate on the sides of the glass where the bolts will be, then stick the remaining 2 chocolate-covered caramels on top and press to adhere. Place the glass in the freezer until the chocolate has hardened, about 10 minutes or up to overnight. 
  5. Meanwhile, make the milkshakes. Blend the ice cream and milk in a blender until smooth. Pour half into the Bride-of-Frankenshake glass and chill in the freezer. Add the peppermint extract and green food coloring to the remaining milkshake in the blender and blend until just combined. Pour into the Frankenshake glass. Cover the top of each glass with the remaining crushed wafer cookies. Swirl the whipped cream on top of the Bride's glass. Serve immediately.
