Everything you need for an affogato caramel vanilla milkshake.

You may be thinking, why go to the trouble of decorating the milkshake glass. Well, why not make it fun and festive? You could make a few up at a time, keep them in the freezer, or they will stay on the counter a few days.

Notice this milkshake doesn’t really have milk in it. The hot coffee begins to melt the ice cream making it perfectly drinkable.

No blender is necessary either. This affogato caramel vanilla milkshake is just the treat to get teachers through grading papers.

If you want a more caramel flavor to this milkshake you could use the Torani caramel sauce to make my caramel coffee. The Torani has a real caramel flavor, no fake taste in this product.

The cute ABC 123 sprinkles are a bright color addition to the milkshake glass
