So maybe half the joy of a Dairy Queen Blizzard is actually getting it at DQ, but if you want to save yourself the trip (and maybe some cash), these treats are pretty easy to re-create at home. I've re-created my fair share of them, and next on the list is the pumpkin pie Blizzard that's part of the ice cream spot's fall collection. I used this recipe from Dulce Dough, though instead of wafers I used graham crackers, and I didn't blend them in. I was slightly worried they'd get soggy, so instead I just crushed them up and put them on top! The pumpkin spice flavor is so delicious in this dessert treat, and you can throw the whole thing together in less than five minutes. Happy snacking!
