The two desserts that scream summer to me are s’mores and ice cream. I love both of them and consume them frequently in the summertime. I love the s’mores in the summer. It brings up sweet, suburban childhood memories for me. So obviously, I had to combine the two into a delicious, no churn ice cream!
The three s’mores components to this recipe are the classic marshmallow, chocolate, and graham crackers. The best incorporation of these that I’ve found is by making a chocolate ganache to swirl throughout the ice cream. Then taking mini marshmallows and crushed graham crackers and layering it in the pan. I also think that marshmallow fluff swirls would also be AMAZING. (I need to try that soon…)
No Churn Ice Cream
Let’s refresh ourselves on the beautiful, simple recipe that is no churn ice cream (god bless whoever invented it). It is crazy simple to make, and you can customize it to whatever you could want! Add 16 oz of heavy whipping cream and 14 oz of sweetened condensed milk to a mixing bowl. I use my Kitchenaid stand mixer and set to high for about 8-10 minutes, until stiff peaks form. That’s truly it! Add the s’mores toppings in layers and freeze. Freeze for a minimum of 6 hours or overnight for best results.
