Ice Cream, I love you.
I can’t get over how delicious this ice cream was. It was so easy, and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I ate my first scoop. Chocolate pieces, graham crackers and roasted marshmallows… the combination is unstoppable. Dare I say, add Reese’s Cups? (UPDATE: We added Reese’s. It was life-changing.)
We received the ice cream maker attachment for the Kitchen Aid as a wedding gift a few weeks ago and thought we would have to wait until next season to bust it out. But hello, we’re in Nashville and the weather is about as fickle as my cat. (Love you, Carm.) This weekend it was SO BEAUTIFUL so we took advantage and made us good ‘ol ice cream.
As I sorted through recipes I did not want anything too scary-looking. Anything that involved a million ingredients and boiling milk on the stove was filtered our immediately. I found this recipe and it looked simple and delicious. I was sold.
Baker’s Notes: The recipe called to roast marshmallows and break them into pieces when adding to ice cream. This ended up in a bit of a mess (though delicious). I think marshmallow fluff or mini marshmallows be a bit easier to work with, but hey, you really can’t go wrong.
Homemade S’More Ice Cream:
- 1 cup milk
- 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1tsp vanilla
- Pinch of salt
- 10-12 large marshmallows (24 mini marshmallows or 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff)
- 6 crumbled graham crackers
- 1 chopped Hershey bar
- In a bowl, add milk, whipping cream, sugar, vanilla and salt. Stir.
- Turn on ice cream maker and pour mixture into the machine. Make according to your maker’s instructions. (For the Kitchen Aid attachment, it took about 25 minutes.)
- While the ice cream is churning, roast the marshmallows in the oven. Broil for about 3 minutes.
- When the ice cream is almost ready, add the crackers, chocolate and marshmallows until it’s completely done.
- Serve immediately. If you prefer a harder ice cream, pour into an airtight container and freeze for a few hours.
