Minnie Witch Shake

  • Author: Elana Lepkowski
  • Yield: 1 Minnie Witch Shake 1x


Cool off this Halloween with a minty Minnie Witch Shake! A Disneyland-inspired treat.



Mint Chip Cookies and Cream Shake:

  • 3, 2 ounce scoops mint chocolate chip ice cream
  • 3 Oreo cookies, crushed
  • 1/4 cup milk, more or less to taste

Toppings and Decorations:

  • 4 ounces orange candy melts
  • 1/2 cup orange sanding sugar
  • 5 green M&Ms candies
  • orange, green, and purple sanding sugar mix (this can be pre-packaged if you find it, or mix together yourself)
  • whipped cream (or 1 cup heavy cream, 1 teaspoon each vanilla extract and simple syrup or liquid sweetener of your choice with directions below for making from scratch)
  • purple food coloring
  • 2 Oreo cookies

Special Tools:


For the shake:

  1. In a blender, combine the mint ice cream, crushed cookies, and milk. Blend until smooth. Set aside.

For the glass decoration and chocolate bow:

  1. Pour the orange sanding sugar into a wide, shallow bowl. Set aside.
  2. Melt the orange candy melts in a microwave safe bowl, like glass. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave again for an additional 30 seconds. Keep stirring and microwaving in short bursts of 15-20 seconds until melted and smooth. Use can alternatively use a double boiler for melting.
  3. Dip and coat the outer rim of a glass with the melted candy melts. Then dip in the orange sanding sugar, turning to coat the entire outside rim.
  4. Then, pour some of the melted orange candy melts in your bow mold(s). Let set at least 10 minutes in the refrigerator.
  5. Remove the bow from the mold when hardened and set aside. Repeat molding for additional bows.

To make the purple whipped cream:

  1. If using ready made whipped cream: Spray whipped cream into a small bowl and using a toothpick, add a drop of purple food coloring. Mix and set aside.
  2. If using a whipped cream canister: Add heavy cream, vanilla extract, simple syrup, and one drop of purple food coloring to a chilled whipped cream canister. Add N2O cartridge and twist to activate. Shake the container for a few seconds and set aside.
  3. If making whipped cream with a mixer: Add heavy cream and one drop of purple food coloring to a chilled mixing bowl. Mix until medium peaks form. Set aside.


  1. In the prepared glass, pour in the mint shake mixture. (Any extra set aside to top off later!)
  2. Spoon or spray prepared whipped cream on top.
  3. Sprinkle with orange, green, and purple sanding sugar mix.
  4. Place the bow and the Oreo “ears” on top of whipped cream. Enjoy with a fun straw!


  • Glasses can be prepared up to a week ahead and stored in the refrigerator.
  • Bows can be prepared up to three days and stored in refrigerator.
  • If dairy is not your thing, try a dairy alternative ice cream and “milk”! You can also make the whipped cream with cream of coconut but be prepared for a less stiff cream on top.
  • If your ice cream is too soft, use less milk, and alternatively, if your ice cream is pretty hard, use a splash more milk.
  • You can pre-mix your own sprinkles for future baking projects. There are a lot of bulk options on Amazon for sprinkles and sanding sugars (check out our Favorite Supplies list for some examples!).
