Are you one of those people who perfectly toasts their marshmallows to a golden brown?
How on earth do you do that!? I don’t get it. You must have the patience of a marshmallow saint.
I’m a burn-and-blow kind of guy. Turn the marshmallow into a torch… blow it out… repeat.
The patience technique baffles me. In fact… I secretly looooove to brush my marshmallow torch against the slow rollers and set their marshmallows on fire. They totally hate that.
Marshmallow meets open flame… it’s important in this recipe. I had no idea that this whole Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake was a thing. Amazing. Spike Mendelsohn… that dude from Top Chef invented this thing. Nice work. High five.
Now! I’m going to need you to super toast your marshmallows. Don’t be afraid of a little black char. In fact… I say welcome the char. It’s those itty bitty burny bits that really make this Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake taste like…. you know… a TOASTED Marshmallow Milkshake.
Incidentally… this shake is so good… SO GOOD… that I’ve made it twice in one day. In fact, I’m drinking one now… I also have the heater on in my house. This totally makes sense.
Ps. I know I’m supposed to be resting before going out to work but I just needed to make this happen. So do you!!
Heres what you need to make two small or one large milkshake:
- 8-10 large marshmallows
- 3 large scoops vanilla ice cream or a heaping 1-cup of vanilla ice cream
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Step1) Place marshmallows on skewer and toast until slightly charred over a gas flame. If you don’t have skewers or a gas range, you can toast the marshmallows on a sheet tray in the grill for 2 or 3 minutes. Keep an eye on the marshmallows as they’re in the oven. They’re liable to burst into marshmallow flames pretty quick. Then place on a plate to cool slightly.
Step2) In a blender mix together ice cream, milk, vanilla extract and toasted marshmallows (save 1 or 2 toasted marshmallows to top the milkshake). Blend well. If you want to make it thinner add more milk, if you want it thicker add more ice-cream.
Step3) Pour into glasses and top with toasted marshmallows and enjoy
