roasted marshmallow ice cream - s'more ice cream sandwich

Summer is coming to a close...eighteen days till school starts, hee hee hee!  Ah, the sweet smell of backpacks, freshly sharpened pencils and new tennis shoes.  
They cry, "I want s'more summer vacation".  I reply, "s'mores you want s'mores?"  I just happen to see a fabulous s'more pop on the blog 52 Kitchen Adventures but, for you I will concoct an ice cream sandwich with roasted marshmallow ice cream and chocolate covered graham crackers. 


The smell wafting through the house wakes them up.  “mmmm smells like cotton candy.”





The youngest taste tester comments, “yum I want more.  I taste the marshmallow and a bit of caramel in the burned pieces”.







As we are spreading the chocolate on the graham crackers my youngest says to me, “you know I don’t like graham crackers”.





My gelato maker some how blending all of the burned bits into the ice cream so it is smooth with tiny flavor bursts of toasted marshmallow.



S’more Ice Cream Sandwich


Ice Cream
10 ounces marshmallow fluff more or less depending on your preference
1 cup whole milk
1 cup 1% milk
1 cup heavy cream
4 egg yolks
¼ cup sugar
1t vanilla

~ spread marshmallow fluff on foil covered baking sheet and toast until brown
~ in a heavy bottom sauce pan combine milks, cream and toasted marshmallow fluff
~ place over medium-low heat
~ stir occasionally until temperature reaches 170 degrees  and tiny bubbles start to form
~ meanwhile put egg yolks in a round medium size pyrex and whisk until smooth
~ add sugar to yolks and whisk until thick and pale
~ IMPORTANT PART
~ temper your egg yolks by taking about 1/2 cup of hot milk/cream mixture and slowly pour into yolks while whisking yolks...keep it moving or you will end up with scrambled eggs
~ continue adding about 1/2 cup at a time slowly until you have added about 1 1/2 to 2 cups
~ pour egg mixture into remaining milk/cream mixture in pan
~ cook over low heat stirring frequently until mixture reaches 185 degrees (do not boil)
~ remove from heat and add vanillia
~ cool and place in refrigerator at least 4 hours or overnight
~ pour into ice cream maker and freeze according to ice cream makers instructions

1T 1% milk
graham crackers

~ place chips and cream in a microwave safe bowl
