Baileys Freakshake

Indulge your sweet tooth with a chocolate, sweet and slightly salted milkshake that is topped with a giant edible spider for some Halloween fun. 

  • COOK 15 Minutes
  • LEVEL easy
  • BATCH Serves 4


For the spider:

50g (2oz) dark chocolate, melted
50g (2oz) chocolate vermicelli sprinkles
2 ring doughnuts (we used Krispy Kreme)
8 giant pretzels, snapped into ‘legs’

For the Freakshake:

500ml (17 fl oz) tub salted caramel ice cream
250ml (9 fl oz) whole milk
100ml (3 ½ fl oz) Baileys

For the decoration:

4 edible eyes
50ml (2 fl oz) chocolate sauce
50ml (2 fl oz) caramel sauce
Candy floss


  • To make the spider; melt the dark chocolate in a shallow heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Set aside. Pour the chocolate sprinkles into another shallow bowl, and dip the doughnuts first in the chocolate, and then into the sprinkles. Use the giant pretzels, snapped into ‘legs’ to decorate the spider, and add on some edible eyes.Chill until set.
  • Next, decorate the large glasses (about 400ml (14fl oz) capacity each). Brush chocolate sauce around the lip of the jars, and drizzle chocolate and caramel sauce over the inside and outside of the jars. Stick pieces of candy floss around the top of each jar to create a ‘web’.
  • Tip the shake ingredients into a blender and blend on high speed until everything is well combined. Pour into the glasses, place spider on top and finish with straws to serve.
