Learn how to make a Blizzard at home with your favorite candy bar and ice cream. A simple DIY recipe tutorial idea for a hot day.
Oh, how I love that mixture of soft ice cream and my favorite candy bar Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups. It has gotten bad 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 candy bar
First, I made a Snickers Blizzard for the hubby. Open the candy bar and put it in a sandwich zip lock bag.
Smash the candy bar with a meat tenderizer.
Yes, I think I enjoyed this step a little too much.
The next couple steps don’t have an exact measurement. Just go by your own preferences.
Put a couple scoops of ice cream into a blender. I have a Ninja, and it works perfectly!
Add milk a little bit at a time until the ice cream is good and soft but still nice and thick. The more milk you add the less thick the Blizzard will be.
When the ice cream is at the right consistency, add the broken candy bar and mix again.
Saved a little bit of the crushed candy bar to put on the top of the ice cream treat for total perfection.
Next, I made mine with the Peanut Butter Cups. No need to pre-crush the Peanut Butter Cups because they are already soft.
MMMMMM. It was pretty fantastic! What kind of Ice Cream and Candy Bar would you use? Share and leave a comment below!
