Today is a big day. It’s Friday, which means it’s Cocktail Friday, but it also happens to be my birthday and the Friday of #MilkshakeWeek. So, yeah. Lots of things going on. As soon as I heard that milkshake week was happening, I knew I wanted to post something with coffee, chocolate and a bit of booze.

It is my birthday, after all.

This idea started because I have a total thing for chocolate covered espresso beans. They’re so unbelievably addictive and I tend to go a little nuts with them. They’re like candy, but pack a serious caffeine punch…obviously. I thought they would be awesome blended up in a milkshake made from my favorite cold brew coffee, super fudgey ice cream and a splash of Kahlua. This milkshake is everything I was hoping it would be. Caffeinated and super chocolatey!

      Thanks, Jamie! I swear I could eat like 5 handfuls of these things…and then be bouncing off the walls like a crazy person.

    I can never stop at one chocolate covered espresso bean when I buy a pack, and usually I can finish them in one sitting. This shake is calling my name!

      I hear you, Denise! I recently sought out a package of these when we were on a road trip and the Starbucks in the rest stop was out of them, but by a weird stroke of luck, the Starbucks girl directed me to the little shop in the rest stop saying they had them there…and they did! I was so pumped – I ate like half of them in the car and am positive I made for annoying road trip company, lol
