This shake's ingredients invoke the best of what its inspiration — the Mars company’s 93-year-old Milky Way candy bar — has to offer, right down to the sauces painted on the inside walls of the glass it’s served in. A topping of fluffy whipped cream and crushed malted milk balls completes the set.
It has been on the menu at Good Stuff Eatery since the chain's first shop opened in 2008.
Where to Buy: Malted milk powder is available in large grocery stores.
Tested size: 1 servings
2 tablespoons good-quality dark fudge sauce
2 tablespoons good-quality butterscotch or caramel sauce
2 tablespoons whole milk
1 tablespoon malted milk powder (see headnote)
10 ounces vanilla frozen custard or French vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
Whipped cream, for garnish
2 or 3 malted milk balls, crushed, for garnish
Smear the fudge sauce (warmed, as needed, for easy application) on the inside of a tall milkshake glass; you’re going for irregular coverage here. Smear the butterscotch or caramel sauce in some of the clear spaces in and around the fudge sauce.
Combine the milk, malted milk powder and vanilla frozen custard or French vanilla ice cream in a blender or the metal cup of a milkshake machine. Blend just until smooth and thick.
Pour into the smeared glass. Immediately top with a good-size dollop of homemade or store-bought whipped cream and a small handful of crushed malted milk balls.
