Do you remember drinking these deliciously smooth, fizzy chocolate drinks as a child? There isn't much that can beat a recipe that evokes precious childhood memories and this one surely does it. Young people would frequently head to the closest malt shops to indulge in a classic treat: a chocolate egg cream.
This day and age, the majority of individuals haven't a clue as to what an egg cream would be. Upon hearing the name, one would assume that it was something that was used in a delicious baked good. No siree! If you grew up in the time when egg cream was popular, you would laugh at that comment!
It was a luxurious treat that children and young adults alike would save up their pennies so they could purchase this delectable dessert drink. While it has the appearance of a frosty milkshake, it would be a shame to compare it to such.
