  • 1 chocolate donut
  • Cherry Glaze For Donuts
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate ice cream
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
  • Hot Fudge Sauce
  • Boozy Cherries
  • Lightly sweetened whipped cream


  1. Dip chocolate donuts in glaze and let stand until dry. Meanwhile, blend chocolate ice cream and milk until smooth and just pourable. Spread some hot fudge sauce on the sides of a tall glass. Add 1 scoop vanilla ice cream. Crumble half a donut on top. Drizzle with more hot fudge sauce. Add a spoonful of boozy cherries with some of their juices. Top with milkshake; do not fill to the top of the glass or it will overflow when toppings are added. Pipe on whipped cream, as desired. Top with remaining donut and more cherries and fudge sauce (reheat in the microwave, as needed). Serve with a straw, a bowl and a spoon.
