OMGoodness!!! Y’all. I’m back on track with going low carb and ‘good girl’ and the scales show it. But I wanted a special treat to celebrate getting back on track. One that wouldn’t wreck my progress, but that would rock my world. I think this is IT. I got really inspired to replicate one of my favorite naughty treats: a <whispering> butterfinger blizzard.
Now, this is really more of a milkshake texture but the flavor and textures are all there for me. I would not take the name of butterfingers in vain…this takes me there.

The peanut buttery goodness…
the little bits of toffee like crispies…
interrupted but the velvety chunks of chocolate.
Give this one a try, and come back and tell me what you think!
For my Trim Healthy sisters, the full recipe is a meal or snack S, and I recommend using a half recipe as an S dessert.
Note: you will need to whip up a batch of these AH-mazing caramel coconut crunch to give you that yummy buttery crunch. One batch of this fills a quart jar, so you can make a LOT of these yummy milkshakes. AND if you somehow get tired of the butterfinger flavor, you can always make a Samoan milkshake.
