Gently heat the cream in a saucepan, but don’t let it boil.
Put either of the chocolates into a large heatproof bowl, pour over the hot cream (you will need only two-thirds if using white chocolate), stir once and let it stand for a few minutes to soften, then stir until completely melted (you might think it won’t combine, but it will).
When at room temperature, the ganache should ideally be spreadable like margarine. It will keep in the fridge for 2 weeks or can be cut into portion sized cubes and frozen until needed. (Bring it back to room temperature before use.)
Generously coat the rim of your glass with alternate dollops of white and plain chocolate ganache; I like to smear a little on the inside of the glass as well. Put the nuts and fudge in the palm of one hand and carefully dip the glass into the mixture to coat the rim. Stick a few pieces of brownie to the rim, too.
Put the ice cream, Oreos, ganache and milk into a blender and lightly blend until thick and creamy – you could leave some chunks of Oreo, if you like. Pour the milkshake into the prepared glass.
Spoon or pipe the whipped cream (reserving a little for decorating) over the shake in a conical shape.
Now, using your creativity, add a straw and your top dressing treats; start with the larger items, embedding them into the whipped cream, then add the smaller items and finally the chocolate sauce. Mmm… chocolate heaven
