Shake, rattle and roll

My addiction to all things sweet is no secret. I’m happiest with a bowl of ice cream, scattered with all kinds of good/bad/naughty things, a lick of dark chocolate sauce, sea salted caramel or a zingy raspberry coulis. I am a big fan of contrast though – hence the sea salted caramel above, all sweet and savoury at the same time. I always get my popcorn mixed at the cinema – a bit Russian roulette perhaps, but a delicious, more-ish combination none-the-less.

Perhaps that’s why I go mad for a milkshake with a burger; it’s an old school classic combination – perversely, as kids, we used to dip fast-food chips into milkshakes. That’s a blast from the past and something I’m quite keen to try again. All kinds of wrong – but utterly delicious; salty hot chip, cold, sweet chocolate milkshake. Maybe it’s just me…

Still – a fantastic addition to a milkshake and one we don’t use to often over here is malt – adding savoury, Malteser-y notes to cut through the chocolate-y richness. Don’t scrimp with the ice cream here – super-indulge.
