We're not saying you have to add Baileys Irish Cream to this mint chocolate chip ice cream shake, but it's probably in your best interests that you do.

Toasted marshmallows make this already scrumptious shake even better. And I've added my personal favorite secret ingredient: malted milk powder. Yum — tastes like Whopper candies.

For a festive St. Patrick's Day treat, be sure to top this shake with a generous dollop of whipped cream and green candy sprinkles.
