Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes, plus time for sauce to cool
- To make the white chocolate sauce: Fill a small saucepan with about 1 inch of water and bring to a simmer. Combine chocolate and cream in a small heatproof bowl set over the saucepan. Maintain a gentle simmer and stir chocolate mixture occasionally until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and add vanilla and red food coloring. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
- Use a spoon to spread stripes of chocolate sauce inside 2 serving glasses or jars, using about half.
- To make the milkshakes: Spread frosting around the top of serving glasses or jars, making a band around the outside. Put crushed cookies on a shallow plate and roll frosted rim in cookies, pressing them in; set glasses aside in the freezer.
- In the jar of a blender, combine ice cream, milk, vanilla, and broken cookies. Add more milk, if necessary, to reach desired consistency.
- Add milkshake mixture to prepared glasses. Top with whipped cream and drizzle with remaining chocolate sauce. Decorate with red licorice sticks, candy sticks, mini candy coated chocolates, white chocolate pretzels, sprinkles, and more whole or broken red velvet cookies and serve.
- Serves 2
