When thinking about the holidays traditions immediately come to mind. I have lots of little traditions with my kids and I love that they’re at the ages that they remember, ask about them and want to continue them. Along with Christmastime comes cookies and candy and eggnog and of course, candy canes. My kids both love candy canes and are fans of special treats. Especially when it’s something that we don’t have too often. So when I proposed that we make Candy Cane Milkshakes, the kids were all over the idea. After all, is there anything better than snuggling in front of the Christmas tree with family and a tasty treat at Christmastime?
A favorite tradition in our house is Christmas pajamas. Each year on Christmas Eve the kids get to open one gift and that gift is always their new Christmas jammies. After the gift is opened and the jammies are on, we’ll pile into the car and go look at Christmas lights. It’s truly one of my favorite nights of the entire year. The sheer joy and excitement on the kids faces is everything. All of Christmas Eve and Christmas morning is wrapped in tradition. From the jammies & drive to the stockings & Christmas breakfast, it’s all about creating memories and keeping up with traditions.
Candy Cane Milkshake
2 large scoops of Kemps Candy Cane Ice Cream
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Toss the ice cream, milk and vanilla into the blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Drizzle the glass with a bit of chocolate syrup and poor the milkshake into your glass. Top with whipped cream and serve.
Kemps has some really delicious flavors of ice cream this time of year (and always!), not just the Candy Cane flavor. We love the Moose Tracks and Old Fashioned Chocolate as well. Although my kids will eat pretty much any ice cream, any time, any day.
Be sure to check out the Kemps webpage to see all of the delicious treats they offer. There’s everything from ice cream, milk and eggnog to seasonal ice cream bars!
