Not that there is really a wrong time to adore toasted marshmallows, but this time of year always has me jonesing for them like crazy. Most of the time I eat them in s’more form straight from our fire pit (still one of the very best things about our house), sometimes I consume them in cookie bar form, but this toasted marshmallow ice cream is my new favorite delivery method.
I’ll be straight with you and say up front that, though simple overall, making this is a somewhat messy affair. Marshmallows are torched and then frozen before being folded into the just churned ice cream. The business of getting the marshmallows into the ice cream is where things will get sticky since, even though frozen, the marshmallows are a gooey mess. Don’t worry though – you’ll eventually get them into the mix, wash your hands and then enjoy the finished product a few hours later. Hopefully, like me, you will find the whole mess completely worth it. And if you’ve never tried making homemade marshmallows, this is the perfect opportunity. The texture and flavor are light years better than the packaged variety and it will make all the difference in the outcome of the ice cream. Enjoy!
