Oh, how I love a Blizzard! That mixture of soft ice cream and my favorite candy bar, Reece's Peanut Butter Cups.
It has gotten worse lately. My sweet hubby has been taking me to Dairy Queen a couple of times a week so I can indulge in one of my favorite treats, the Blizzard!
But did you know that this ice cream treat is actually very easy to make at home? Plus, you can make it in all of your favorite flavors!
- Favorite ice cream
- Favorite candy bar
- Milk (optional)
Easy Blizzard Copycat Recipe
First, I am making a Snickers Blizzard for the hubby, but the steps are the same no matter what candy or sundae topping you are using.
Open the candy bar and put it in a sandwich zip-lock bag.
Smash the candy bar with a meat tenderizer.
Yeah, I think I enjoyed this step a little too much.
The next couple of steps don't have an exact measurement. Just go by your own preferences and how much candy you like in your Blizzard.
Put a couple scoops of ice cream into a blender. I have a Ninja, and it works perfectly!
To soften the ice cream you can either let the ice cream sit until it softens or add a bit of milk to help soften the ice cream faster.
I usually add the milk, because then I don't have to wait on the ice cream, I can just make my treat.
If you choose the milk route, add the milk a little bit at a time until the ice cream soft but still nice and thick. The more milk you add the less thick the Blizzard will be.
Or, if you are using softened ice cream, you can simply add your ice cream to the blender.
NeXt, add the broken candy bar to the blender and mix again.
Save a little bit of the crushed candy bar to put on top of the ice cream treat for total perfection.
Once the Snickers Bizzard was done, I made mine with the Peanut Butter Cups. No need to pre-crush the Peanut Butter Cups because they are already soft.
Yum! Now that is a delicious copycat Blizzard!

Our Baking Essential List:
- For baking casseroles, we use Glass Baking Dishes. I especially like the dishes with lids so leftovers can be transferred straight to the fridge.
- Silicone Kitchenware is my favorite because they don't scratch my cookware and are super easy to clean!
- To prepare all of those ingredients a Glass Cutting Board is a must. We even keep ours on our counter at all times.
- This Knife Set will also become your favorite! They cut beautifully and with the hollow design of the knife, food doesn't stick to the blade.
