Ready for a fun Christmas treat for the kids? Let’s make a Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Milkshake!
Rudolph has always had a special place in my heart. He’s probably my favorite character from Christmas time. I remember watching the stop motion animation movie and singing the song about him when I was a kid. It was always my favorite song.
Did you know he was created by the old department store Montgomery Wards? Rudolph was created by Robert L. May as a booklet to give out in the department store back in 1939.
Last year I made a polar bear milkshake for my kids. They loved it so much, I decided to try a Rudolph version this year. This is so easy to make. It’s basically an extra thick chocolate milkshake, and we added chocolate cover pretzels for antlers, a maraschino cherry for the glowing red nose, and chocolate chips for the eyes.
