The Ultimate Hershey’s Cocoa Oreo Milkshake with Cardhu single malt Scotch whisky

cocoa oreo milkshake

This is an *adults-only milkshake* that I just made as a trial tomorrow and it’s perfect for a Friday night – excessive amounts of cocoa powder and single malt Scotch whisky are two of the main ingredients. I used Hershey’s Natural Unsweetened Cocoa which is a 100% cocoa powder.


The choice of Scotch is up to which area (Highlands, Islay, etc) you’re partial to but I used a Speyside 12 year old single malt Scotch whisky for mine since I like the taste of Cardhu (and it comes in a decanter like bottle with a huge stopper).

You will need:

  • 1 glass cold milk
  • 4 heaped tablespoons of Hershey’s Natural Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream
  • 4 Oreo cookies
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of cream
  • Single malt Scotch whisky to taste

cold milk

There is no reason to weigh the cold milk – my better half just brought over a scale and I wanted to try it out. Haha!

I added 4 heaped tablespoons of Hershey’s Natural Unsweetened Cocoa into the blender – this is a very heavy and strong tasting cocoa powder (100% cocoa) so you don’t need to put in a lot unlike chocolate/malt drinks like Milo and Ovaltine and the pricing reflects that.

add oreos

I put in 3 Oreo cookies (plain) into the mix and discovered it wasn’t enough so added another via the drop-in hatch on top

Next, put in the heavy cream

…and add the single malt Scotch whisky to taste. I poured in quite a lot of Cardhu 12 year old Scotch. I think I put nearly 3-4 shots inside. I still maintain it was a slip of the hand. smirk

You just need to blend this all up and pour to serve! It’ll fit into a single glass with a little to spare.

The cocoa and Oreo milkshake tastes good! The cocoa was a bit too intense so I’ll cut it down tomorrow. There’s also too much Scotch, my dear took a sip and nearly threw up, but it tastes alright to me. However, we noticed that it wasn’t as cold as we imagined and that’s coz…

We forgot the ice cream! -_-

    • The cocoa is unsweetened! πŸ™‚

      You can just omit the sugar and liquor for this if you want. I didn’t put liquor in the second time we made this too, I seldom drink unless it’s a special occasion. I didn’t put sugar in either and the cocoa tastes bitter, but good, that way.

      Oh well, at least sugar prices has gone up! Haha!

  1. HB, you should call it the Sixthseal.Com Shake. After so many years blogging you should have something name after your blog. I like this shake very much great for party. New Year party is just around the corner so Xmas too. Any bars or restaurants would like this recipe.

    • There is actually a drink named after my blog in a pub! πŸ™‚

      It’s called “Something Wicked This Way Comes” and the “Adios Motherfucker” (a popular shooter which I changed and has the description credited to right on the menu). The pub was a place called Luconia in Kuching which I used to frequent:

      This recipe is a bit thick though – kinda like the ice cream cocktails in some bars, it’s more like a dessert, you can’t really drink more than one. Thanks Vickie!

    • I do like chocolate! πŸ™‚

      I think this one isn’t a huge success but we made one the next day that’s a lot better – without alcohol this time.

    • No worries dear! <3

      It's no big deal, you made a really nice one the next day that's even better than this one.

      Thanks for the nice dinner and the nice menu dear. I love you always! *hugs*

  2. There you go again Chef Huai Bin! You never failed to impress everyone with your innovative and kinky cooking! Now have this milkshake that won’t keep me sober! I love Milk, Oreo, Chocolates and Whiskey! What a brilliant way to blend them all together to make me triple happy!

    • Yeah, and the addition of cream is what makes it good! πŸ™‚

      We bought 4 packs of cream over the weekend so there’s plenty to spare for experiments like this. Milk, I always buy full cream but with the addition of *more* cream, the stuff tastes better.

      You can’t go wrong with a good single malt Scotch too!

    • Yup, you can omit it altogether! πŸ™‚

      We made another batch the next day without liquor and changed some of the ingredients (removed the Oreos too) and it turned out to be a better shake!

      The new non-alcoholic version uses just a little milk (1//4) and the remainder (3/4) is ice cream. Delicious!
