Jack in the Box’s Rice Krispies Shake

1 T. marshmallow fluff

1 cup vanilla ice cream

2 T. milk

2 T. Rice Krispies


*In a small bowl or glass, combine the marshmallow fluff and the milk-if u don’t combine them first, it’s really hard to mix the fluff in properly into the ice cream. Scoop the ice cream into a large glass and add the milk mixture. Stir until it reaches the consistency you desire. You can use a blender to do this if you like. Use a spoon to stir in the Rice Krispies just before serving.
