Welcome to How To Cook That I’m Ann Reardon. Today we are making Freak shakes which are
like milkshakes that have gone crazy. Which one would you like to have? This idea comes from a cafe in Australia called
Pâtissez they have people queuing for 40 minutes to get one of these. The first thing we need to do is make some
ganache. Use a mixture of milk and dark chocolate and pour over some hot cream. I’ll put all of the recipe quantities for
these on the http;//howtocookthat.net website for you, and there is a link in the description
below. Once that has rested for a few minutes give
it a good stir until it is well combined and looks glossy and yummy. For each two milkshakes that you want to make
measure out half a cup of this ganache and put it to one side at room temperature. Pour
the rest of the ganache into a plastic bag. Flatten it out and put it in the freezer to
chill so it thickens up. If you put it in just in a bowl it will take
a lot longer to chill. All of the shakes have cream on top. So take
some whipping cream and add a little vanilla extract. Then use electric beaters to whip
the cream. You’ll need to turn the beaters off to check if it is ready – this is nearly
done but see how it’s not quite holding its shape it’s still a bit droopy. Just give it
a little bit longer… and then turn it off and check again and that’s how it should be.
So you don’t want to over whip it. Place that into a piping bag fitted with a
star shaped nozzle and just put that to one side while we can make our shakes. for the CHOCOLATE BROWNIE FREAK SHAKE Place the half a cup of that ganache into
a blender with milk and ice cream. and blend that up well and you get a really rich chocolatey
milkshake Using the ganache that we put in the freezer
so it is nice and thick spread a scoop onto the inside of the jars. Then spread another
scoop around the top of the glass, now be really generous here because we want the to
look crazy and over the top. To make it look shiny heat the outside for a moment with a
brulee torch. We don’t want to burn it so not too long just a quick pass over.
Add a scoop of ice cream to each one and pour in the chocolate milkshake. And you’ll see
that ice cream just float to the top which is going to help when we are putting our cream
on. Pipe a circle of cream starting around the
outside edge of the jar then around in a spiral into the middle. Then pipe more on top because
everything about these is generous and over the top. To each one add a square of chocolate brownie
and a big marshmallow. Then use your brulee torch to toast the marshmallow until it is
brown and melted and crispy and it’s ready to serve. For the NUTELLA PRETZEL milkshake in a blender
put milk, half a cup of ganache, a big spoon of nutella and of course a scoop of ice cream.
and blend that all together. Smear some nutella inside the jars and even
more around the top. This one really is for people who just like to eat nutella by the
spoonful. Flatten it out a nit around the top there and then add pretzels around the
top of each one. Add a scoop of ice-cream and pour in the nutella milkshake. Pipe the cream around the top. Then add more
nutella and pretzels to decorate. Yum To make the CARAMEL APPLE PIE freak-shakes,
these are my husband Dave’s favourite. Take a sheet of puff pastry and cut it into quarters. Add some tinned apple to one side. Then fold
the pastry in half over the top. Use a fork to seal the edges and place onto
a baking tray. If you’re apple is unsweetened sprinkle you may want to sprinkle a little
sugar on top. and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. In a blender pour in some milk, salted caramel
and ice cream and whip that altogether. Smear some caramel on the inside of the jar
just like we did with the nutella and around the top edge. If you want it dripping down
heat it with a brulee torch and it will pour down the sides there.. Add the ice-cream and
salted caramel milkshake. Then pipe your cream on top and put and apple pie on top of that
and then drizzle with more caramel sauce. Now for our DONUT FREAK SHAKES Place some
jam around the outside of your jar and then add some custard around as well. Put in a
scoop of vanilla ice cream then pour in a vanilla milkshake which is just made with
your vanilla ice cream and milk. Top that with cream.
Then add your straw right into the center and put the donut over the top placing it
right in the middle so it doesn’t slide off. Which one would you like to have? My kids
