Boozy Malted Hot Chocolate Milkshake ~ Savory Simple

This boozy malted hot chocolate milkshake is total dessert heaven.  As you may have noticed, I love sweets and one of my favorite desserts happens to be ice cream (and yes, I eat it year round. Hooray for heated homes!) You know what makes this dessert even sweeter? Knowing that the ingredients comes with a Fair Trade Certification.

Are you familiar with fair trade?  It’s worth a bit of research if the concept is new to you.  I didn’t learn about it myself until about a year ago when I heard a piece on NPR.  Buying fair trade is a simple way to give back (and what a wonderful gesture during the holiday season).  The primary goal of fair trade is to improve the lives of farmers and those who process raw materials for the foods we enjoy.  In addition to guaranteeing ethical pay for labor, fair trade funds are specifically designated for social, economic and environmental development projects.  You’ve likely heard about unfair labor practices in overseas clothing factories. Well, the same problems exist in the food industry but only now is the information becoming more mainstream (you might remember my post this summer on slave-free tomatoes). Want to know more?  Visit this link for more details about fair trade and why it’s important.

I’m honored to be working with Lake Champlain Chocolates today for a recipe and giveaway to help spread the word about fair trade products. They’re setting a wonderful example for other companies and they’re chocolates are delicious. Today I’ve used their Organic Fair Trade Certified Hot Chocolate in a milkshake. This hot chocolate is pretty great. I’ve been enjoying it quite a bit over the holiday season and was eager to see what else could be done with it. This recipe is the answer. Best milkshake I’ve had in ages. Giveaway details are below the recipe!

    Oh goodness. Forgot to mention that the fair trade thing is new to me. I’ve got to research more into it! Thanks for reminding me and all of us.

  • LivedinItaly

    What is there not to like about hot chocolate, especially with a little adult beverage added? Sipping hot chocolate while nibbling on chocolate. Sounds like heaven to me! :)

  • http://www.cookincanuck.com Cookin’ Canuck

    Oh my, does this ever look good! And I love the boozy addition.

  • LivedinItaly

    I can speak from personal experience that Lake Champlain Chocolates are some of the most addictive chocolates made in the USA. I always wonder if the FDA is aware that LCC is distributing a controlled substance without a license?
