The Heath Bar and Marshmallow Blizzard from Dairy Queen

When I was at Miracle Treat Day at Dairy Queen a couple of weeks ago, we sold about 200 Blizzards in about 3 hours!  It was CRAZY and we managed to raise a good chunk of money for the Children's Miracle Network.  While I was there, I took some time to introduce the Dairy Queen staff to my favorite Blizzard flavor and combination.  And I talked a couple of the gals into showing you how it's made.  Ladies and Gents, I proudly present . . . The Heath Bar and Marshmallow Blizzard from Dairy Queen!
