|Our first attempt at trying to make smores ice cream
|Traditional smores in double-decker fashion My oldest enjoying a smore around the campfire
Well it was worth a try so here is what you will need: (Printable recipe click here)
2 3/4 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of marshmallow cream
1 cup mini chocolate chips (or chopped up regular chocolate chips)
1 cup of golden grahams cereal, smashed
1/2 cup of torn up mini marshmallows
First mix the sugar with the whole milk in a bowl. Blend with an electric mixer for 1-2 minutes until sugar is dissolved. Add 1 cup of marshmallow cream and mix (will be lumpy) Add in heavy cream and teaspoon of vanilla and stir.
|Mix all of the wet ingredients together - the marshmallow fluff was lumpy here and there
The ice cream seems so naked this way, but use this 20 minutes wisely and chopped up your "add ins". Most of the time, you want your add ins smaller than a chocolate chip and mini chips are recommended. Since I didn't have any on hand, I just used my pampered chef hand chopper and made my own "mini" chips.
|Not so pretty, but slightly smaller chocolate chips
Then, last minute, I got all crazy, and throwing cautionary measurements to the wind, I also quickly tore up some mini marshmallows, maybe 1/2 cup worth.
Now 20 minutes have passed on the ice cream machine, so you can add in all your nummy extras.
|Smores ice cream comes to life before your eyes!
|This recipe is a bit on the "full" side, and your ice cream will come up right to the top of the machine.
|Smores ice cream and fire light. Sigh, what a perfect combo.
