There’s nothing like a thick, creamy milkshake to make you feel like a kid again. In this book author Autumn Martin, an award-winning chocolatier and owner of Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery in Seattle, shares a range of 60 new and old dessert drinks that will have you salivating and ready to get your milkshake on! I guarantee you that there’s something within the pages of this gem to satisfy any sweet tooth. Relive a nostalgic moment by indulging in one of the Soda Fountain Classics like  Banana, Butterscotch, or Strawberry.

Finally, the Boozy Shakes chapter is the one to turn to late at night when the kids are in bed. Sip on Chocolate Espresso Whiskey Malts, Mojito and Campari Shakes, or try the Jalapeno Tequila Shake for a kick!

Are you drooling and ready to get started making some of your own malts and milkshakes? Do you have an ice cream maker? No? Well, not to worry! For anyone without one, all the recipes in the book can be made with store-bought ice cream or using one of the three basic ice cream recipes given at the beginning of the book for chocolate, vanilla, and ginger. And for complete beginners, an overview of blenders and ice cream and sorbet makers is given, along with notes for how to choose the best ingredients for your frozen treats. Autumn also provides a host of ideas for variations and side dessert, as well as bonus recipes for mouthwatering syrups and sauces for drizzling onto your malts and shakes. With all these delicious possibilities, who can pass up a milkshake?

I'm an assistant editor at St. Martin's Press. I caught the crafting bug when I was little and I wouldn't let my parents leave the store without buying me a crafting kit---any crafting kit! I wove baskets, folded origami, made jewelry, and painted glass. I'm an avid, but impatient knitter, so I'm always choosing projects that I can finish over a weekend. I also love to cook and bake. When I'm not working in the office working on craft books, my weekend consists of , well...making something with my hands. I'm usually scouring whatever's fresh at the farmer's market or food co-op, trying out new recipes, and working on my latest craft project.
