You'll Never Guess the Secret Ingredient in Action Bronson's Baklava Milkshake

We have our man Bam Bam to thank for this sweet, unholy marriage of milkshake and pastry.

There are few things more satisfying in this world than a milkshake. Sex comes close, but even that can go awry or end a helluva lot faster than you'd expected.

A milkshake takes its time. A milkshake doesn't disappoint.

You know what else is good? Baklava. It's layers upon layers of crispy phyllo rolled out to the thinness of Bible paper, layered with nuts and drowned in perfumed syrup. It's a slow lover, too.

And should these two be wedded in unholy, sugar-saturated matrimony? Why, yes—yes, they should. And the man officiating this ceremony is none other than Action Bronson, the high priest of Knowing What's Fucking Good.

RECIPE: Action Bronson's Baklava Milkshake

Action, a man who has baklava in his veins, enlisted the help of the doyenne of dairy, Christina Tosi, to create a supremely decadent baklava milkshake with Cereal Milk ice cream on a New York-based episode of Fuck, That's Delicious.

The secret, blasphemous ingredient: a half-teaspoon of smoky bacon fat.

And with that, baklava and milkshake, together at last, lived fattily ever after.
