These easy-to-make milkshake clones from Sonics fountain are no longer available at the 3,342-unit drive-in burger chain, but you'll always have this clone. The straight peanut butter version is way delicious if you're into peanut butter. And then, when you add a little fudge to the recipe for the second clone, you've got what tastes like a cold, creamy Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. Good stuff, man.

Peanut Butter Shake
2 1/4 cups vanilla ice cream
1/4 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

Peanut Butter Fudge Shake
2 1/4 cups vanilla ice cream
1/4 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon chocolate fudge

1. Combine the ingredients for the shake of your choice in a blender. Be sure to pack the ice cream into the measuring cup when you measure it out. Blend everything on medium speed until smooth.

2. Pour the shake into a 16-ounce glass, add a straw, and serve it up. Pop the shake into the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes to firm it up if it's too runny.

Makes 1 serving.

Great recipe! We live overseas so can't go to a Sonic but this recipe is a way to get something from one of our favorite places. Thanks!

I made the milkshake with both the fudge sauce and the peanut butter. I used a homemade fudge sauce that I make, and it was DELICIOUS! They are habit forming.

I altered the recipe a bit. To start I used cookie dough ice cream instead of vanilla, chocolate milk instead of regular, and crunchy peanut butter, and it's the best I have ever tasted. Don't know if it has been done but I call it the "Reese's Pieces Shake." Give her a shot.

I tried the one with the peanut butter and the fudge sauce, and it was delicious! I have made it several times. My husband loves it also.

I loved it! I too am a peanut butter freak! I used fudge swirl ice cream because that was my only option, but next time I'm using chocolate, because I'm also a chocolate freak (most women are, right?)

These shakes are both SO good and so easy to make...what a hit! I tried 1 TB of Hershey's syrup - didn't have fudge sauce, and it was great!

I used Breyer's 98% fatfree ice cream with this and skim milk. It was a real treat and not such a bad cheat on my diet. Thanks for the recipe.

I added 2 Tbsp of powdered malt - might as well go whole hog with something this good/bad. It was absolutely fantastic!!

Its good, and I love this site...however, I agree with another person on here about "top secret"? This is a pretty simple thing you don't have to search for on the web. Todd, please bring on the real top secret stuff...thanks!

Good Recipe. Gives the "ratio" of measurment that lets you "duplicate" the taste of Sonic. Acutally only takes "multiple clicks" if you don't know how to use your computer... *ahem* Excellent recipe overall!

This is "Top Secret?" It's peanut butter added to a vanilla milk shake. Not even worth the multiple clicks it takes to view it.

I love that it's so easy. On these hot summer days, you don't need to spend a lot of time in the kitchen to have a great treat. Thanks!

Top notch! With chocolate, it does taste like a liquid peanut butter cup.

The only thing missing from this is a BANANA. If you use the Peanut Butter Fudge recipe and add a banana to it. YUM!

I made this shake, both the peanut butter version and the peanut butter chocolate, for my kids and they loved it! I didn't have whole milk, so I substituted heavy whipping cream and nonfat milk mixed and it was delicious! Will make it again, with other variations...

For a fun twist add a scoop of vanilla protien powder to this shake for a quick pic me up

This is the best Peanut Butter milkshake I've tasted since Dairy Queens in Greenville, SC in 1954 when I was still in school. Keep up the good work. My wife and I visit Sonic's Drive In on Hwy 544 in Myrtle Beach just so I can have one of these shakes.

Bad, just plain bad. I thought it was me, but I am a good chef and had a relative who is a good chef make it and still, I've had much better. :-(
