Classics never go out of style and when it comes to s’mores, there’s really no wonder why. There’s something wonderful and yet simple about a good smore. Also they’re quite gorgeous if you ever pull a smore apart- or you can just see the one I did. You can literally see the chocolate melting and blending into the marshmallow. Ugh, I think I crave a smore every time I see that picture. Can you blame me?
Honey graham crackers, melting dark chocolate on top, oozing marshmallow out the side. Literal perfection.
I actually strive to always have those ingredients in my pantry because it’s such an easy and delicious treat! Any time you crave dessert but don’t have time- BAM! Fresh smore ready to eat. (And honestly, microwaving the smore for 20 seconds is all you really need to do. It gets the chocolate melted but leaves the marshmallow gooey and fluffy enough to make the best smore.)
Can we just take a moment to look at that detailed picture of the top of the ice cream? You can see every delicious aspect of a classic smore all swirled into the perfect cold treat! (Yes I’m unashamedly proud of this shot and definitely am boasting about it). If that shot doesn’t convince you to try this recipe, maybe the GIF will. You can see how easy this ice cream is. All you have to do is create the simple vanilla base with whipped heavy cream. Then you layer the vanilla cream with a good serving of hot fudge, mini marshmallows, and a handful of broken graham crackers. It’s surprisingly fun and therapeutic to layer the ice cream and create this treat!
S'mores Ice Cream
- 16 oz heavy whipping cream
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 7 oz condensed milk
- 1/2 cup hot fudge
- 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
- 1 cup graham crackers broken
- Set up a metal mixing bowl with the whisk attachment. Add the heavy cream and whip until fluffy and peaks have formed. Add in salt and vanilla extract. Whip until combined.
- With a spatula, gently fold in condensed milk. Take care to not over mix as the peaks will flatten and the cream will melt.
- In a metal loaf pan or container, add about a 1/4 inch layer of the whipped mixture. Layer on a thin spread of the hot fudge topping, marshmallows, and broken graham cracker pieces.
- Repeat this layering process of whipped cream, hot fudge, marshmallows, and graham crackers 3-4 more times, depending on how thick the mix-in layers are.
- Cover the pan tightly and place in freezer for at least 8 hours or overnight.
- Once frozen, scoop out and serve! Feel free to top with additional hot fudge or graham crackers.
