  3. Scoop the ice cream into the blender. Blend it up for about 2 minutes until it's nice and frothy.
  4. Make a garnish for the glass. First, grate the frozen chocolate bar (or crush if using chocolate chips) and place the shavings on a small plate. Then, pour a bit of the shake onto another small plate. Dip the rim of the glass into the shake, then dip it into the chocolate shavings.
