Marshmallows Meet Their Match

Marshmallow Milkshake

Every time my little sis comes to visit me here in Richmond she takes a day trip up to DC to see her BFF.  She never fails to send me a taunting text about the yummy toasted marshmallow shake she’s enjoying at a little joint near the Capitol.  I finally decided I’d had enough of drooling over my keypad.  With a quick google search I found out the creator of this lovely shake spilled the secret on the Oprah show.  So now I can make my own batch of this DC staffer staple any time I like.  And let me just tell you (and then multiply this sentence by a hundred) that this shake is awesome.

Marshmallow Milkshake

Take about 12 regular sized marshmallows (or more!) and broil them in the oven for 2-3 minutes.  Watch these babies closely or they might catch on fire.  And don’t be tempted to use mini-mallows.  They won’t give you the right char-to-gooey-mallow ratio.

Marshmallow Milkshake

Let the marshmallows cool.  Then blend them with two cups of vanilla ice cream and one cup of milk.

Pour into glasses and garnish with a toasted marshmallow.  Take a big sip and you’ll be speechless.  Partly because it is utterly delicous and partly because you’ll realize you don’t have to go to all the trouble of building a campfire when you start craving the oh-so-summery flavor.  It will be a lovely moment.  Promise.

If you do decide you want to roast them over the fire, check out Missy’s post on how to roast them perfectly, here. You may be good enough to challenger her for the gold medal.

And you may or may not be inclined to share.  I’ll leave that up to you, but make sure you have your fill before you hand over the blender glass.  Marshmallow Milkshake

How could I not take a picture of these classic two-year-old fingers?  Chipped off hot pink nail polish, dirt under the finger nails, marshmallow stick between the fingers.  Love.  This.  Girl.

      Me too! That was the first thing that came to my head when I heard about this shake. I've always wanted to try the s'more version but I never make it past the marshmallows because I love the flavor so much. Let me know if you ever try it. I'd love to hear how it turns out.

    As soon as I saw this recipe- I knew that I had to make it for my 'smores lovin' family. And so I did! Last night! And it received twelve thumbs up from my kids! My only issue? The marshmallows stuck to the non-stick foil that I used to broil them on..... did this happen to you?

    I plan to feature this recipe and a picture on my Sunday Links to Love post over at www.momof6.com.

    Warmly,
    Sharon

    My marshmallows totally melted right onto the pan too, but I scraped off as much as I could. Very yummy.

    I am SO trying this tonight! I'm thinking maybe a Silpat will help with the stick factor on the cookie sheet?
  17. August 6th, 2011 at 6:47 am
    Sarah says:
    You could try the Silpat. Marshmallows are so sticky that I think they'll stick to everything. I used a cookie sheet with a non-stick coating and it was pretty easy to get most of it off with a spatula. The residue washed off easily in the sink. I think foil would be difficult because the marshmallows would stick and you'd have to pull out all the foil pieces. The only other thing I can think of would be to spread a little cornstarch on the pan... I'll try a little more experimenting and see if I can come up with anything. Let me know what works!

    Marji says:
    The silpat worked great. Most of the marshmallows just lifted off. Where there were a few little sticky spots, I used the back edge of a butter knife and they rubbed right off. These shakes are the perfect taste of summery goodness in a glass!

    Found you from a link at the Dating Divas website! Just tried this shake and oh-my-word is it GOOD! I used my silpat and had absolutely no problem of sticking...they all came off just fine!

    We have so tried these a few years ago and they quickly became my families favorite shake. You can't get anything more yummy than this to-die-for marshmallow shake. Thanks for sharing!
