  • Strawberry sundae syrup
  • cups whole milk
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream
  • 1 scoop chocolate ice cream
  • 1 cup heavy cream, whipped to stiff peaks
  • 6 candy eyeballs
  • Chef notes

    Elise Strachan, the creator and host of the popular online baking show My Cupcake Addiction, shares her sweetest, spookiest recipes. These eyeball milkshakes may look grotesque, but looks can be deceiving. With the combo of vanilla and chocolate ice cream and strawberry syrup, they're quite the tasty treat.

    Time saver: You can edge the glasses in advance, which also helps the blood drips to stay in place with you add the milkshake.

    Equipment needed: 6 milkshake glasses


    Pour 1/2 inch of strawberry sundae syrup into a shallow bowl.

    Dip the rims of the glasses into the syrup, tilting slightly to allow excess drips to fall before turning upright and allowing the syrup to drip down the inside and the outside. Refrigerate the glasses.

    In a blender, combine the milk, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate ice cream and blend until thick and smooth.

    Pour into the chilled glasses. Put the whipped cream in a piping bag fitted with a star tip and pipe whipped cream on top. Add some streaks of strawberry syrup, and finish with a candy eyeball.
