You guys! This ice cream…. there are no words.
It reminds me of camping, summer nights, the smell of tents and sticky fingers. I remember my sister and I would roast our marshmallows until they were charred black (still my favorite way to eat them!) and then we would fling them off of our sticks into the woods until we’d hear this “thunk” of the marshmallow hitting a tree trunk.
Why we did that… I don’t know. Kids do weird things. But we loved camping. We would jump in freezing cold water (we were in the mountains of Colorado), go on adventures with our golden retreiver and tell ghost stories over the campfire.
This toasted marshmallow ice cream brings all those wonderful memories back. Plus you can slide it in between graham crackers and some Hershey’s chocolate squares and totally have a new twist on a s’more.
Plus this ice cream is no churn, which is my new favorite way of making ice cream. Simply take heavy whipping cream and whip it until it has soft peaks, add a can of sweetened condensed milk, a little vanilla, and then whatever flavors you like.
If you have a gas stove you can easily toast the marshmallows over your stovetop. Another great option is with a kitchen torch. But if you don’t have either of those options you can broil mini marshmallows until they are golden, just a little charred, and bubbly.
This is summer, and all those sweet memories of summer, in one bite.
- 1 pint (16 ounces) heavy whipping cream
- 1-14oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- marshmallows, roasted
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, add one pint of heavy whipping cream. Start beating slowly, and then once it starts to foam, increase speed whipping until soft peaks form.
- Carefully add the sweetened condensed milk, gently as to not to deflate the whipped cream. Add in vanilla in the same manner. I used a rubber spatula to fold in.
- Add toasted marshmallows. I toasted mine in the broiler, but you could easily do them on the stovetop of a gas oven or with a kitchen torch. You want to toast until there are a few charred edges, just like over the campfire.
- Pour toasted vanilla ice cream mixture into a 9x5-inch loaf pan and cover with aluminum foil.
- Place in freezer until hard.
