Quite simply, it is not summer until you eat a s'more. And it certainly is not the Fourth of July unless you eat a s'more.
I'm having a little bit of a crisis this summer, because now that we live in an apartment in the city I don't have access to an outdoor fire pit in which to roast marshmallows for s'mores. I've been craving s'mores since before Memorial Day and had to resort to toasting marshmallows in the oven. It was sad.
BUT then I decided to add my sad, oven-toasted marshmallows to homemade ice cream. And then I paired my toasted marshmallow ice cream with graham crackers and chocolate to make s'mores ice cream sandwiches. And then suddenly my sad, oven-toasted marshmallows didn't seem so sad anymore.
My favorite Fourth of July treat just got upgraded!
We'll begin with the homemade toasted marshmallow ice cream. The best thing about this ice cream - besides the obvious fact that it's super tasty - is that it's "no churn", so there's no fancy equipment needed. Plus, it all comes together with just 4 ingredients!
Once the ice cream is ready, the fun begins! This ice cream is totally delicious on it's own, but for a real summer treat we'll add chocolate and graham crackers for a frozen version of everyone's favorite campfire treat!Print
