This milkshake recipe is *so* extra but so worth it

Why do less when you can do more?! If you haven’t already seen them all over Instagram, these milkshakes from a NYC restaurant are everything. They’re *so* over-the-top and look absolutely delicious but the drive might be a little much for a milkshake. Here’s the recipe to make one at home that looks and tastes just as fabulous!
