Decadent Shakes

“Decadent shakes are an expression of the flavours we love to eat, combined into a drink which tastes and look amazing,” say authors Matthew, Sarah and Brendan Aouad.

“If you enjoy the flavours of sweet and salty, get inspired and mix together chocolate with salted caramel and decorate using crisps chips for an added crunch.”

Matthew, Sarah and Brendan Aouad’s Decadent Shakes is out now through New Holland Publishers Australia — try their Infamous Nutella Milkshake recipe now!

  • Place all the ingredients into a blender and mix until well combined.

  • Before pouring the mixture into the glass, create a chocolate rim around the top of the glass.

  • Place a straw at the back of the glass and fill the remaining space with whipped cream.
  • Place the cut and chocolate dipped cone over the straw.
  • Scatter the hazelnuts around the rim of the glass.
  • Place the sliced licorice pieces in front of the cone.
