Oh my god, you guys. This ice cream is my absolute favorite. FAVORITE. I could eat it every day if my waistline would allow it. The creamiest, smoothest, most delicious ice cream you will ever have. I have told you all about my love of s’mores over and over again, but I’ll say it one more time (and probably 100 more times). I LOVE S’MORES. I will eat them any way I can. Ice cream form was just about the best idea I’ve ever had.
I saw a bunch of recipes online for s’mores ice cream, but not many used chocolate ice cream so I just decided to create my own version. I used my favorite custard base ice cream recipe and tweaked it from there. Toasted marshmallows are blended right in with the ice cream mix before it gets chilled to go into the ice cream maker. The toasted marshmallow taste is very subtle, it makes the chocolate ice cream super velvety and smooth and gives it a lightness and creaminess it otherwise wouldn’t have without them. Plain chocolate ice cream is just too boring, I had to spice it up a bit.
Ice cream is my weakness. When I was younger, my dad and I would have an ice cream cone every single night before bed while watching cartoons. Oh, what a life! Such great memories with him. Most of those memories have ice cream involved (especially coffee royale! WHYYY don’t they make that flavor anymore?!?!)! I blame him for my ice cream infatuation. But then again, if it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t come up with these delicious creations!
My boyfriend, Mike, doesn’t eat ice cream due to lactose issues, but I forced him to at least try a spoonful to tell me what he thinks. He was amazed that I made it at home! It really tastes like the most decadent ice cream you would order at an ice cream parlor. It’s just freaking delicious.
Please, just make this ASAP. You will not be disappointed!
