Frozen treats are totally my jam. Even better if you can suck them through a straw like this gingerbread cookie cream frappe.
But here's the thing. After I made this kettle corn butter pecan shake and tasted its heavenly goodness, I may have come to the conclusion that it's my most favorite frozen treat. Like, ever.
The family wasn't far behind me in agreeing. They sampled the first batch and promptly asked for more.
We made the shake two nights in a row. And it might be three if we slip in dessert tonight.
While the shake calls for kettle corn only as a topping, the overall flavor is reminiscent of that salty sweet treat. And I love the idea of an alternative to your traditional movie-night snack of buttered popcorn.
Our family LOVES watching movies together, especially during the cold winter months. It's fun to find a new treat to enjoy mid-movie.
And while peppermint is usually the go-to flavor during winter, I'm all about butter pecan.
Who's with me??
The rich, butter pecan flavor is thanks to Torani Butter Pecan Syrup. Honestly, I could drink that stuff straight from the bottle.
Sure, blending up some candied pecans help, but it wouldn't have nearly the depth of buttery pecan goodness without Torani.
I have a pantry full of Torani syrups. They're made with real, simple ingredients like pure cane sugar and natural flavors. Their syrups mix super well and are crafted to bring out the best in your drinks. Don't believe me? Check out these decadent 3-ingredient hot chocolate recipes and this amazing lemonade bar.
