A Simple Treat

When I saw this recipe, I couldn’t resist! I immediately wrote the ingredients down on my shopping list and even though it’s freezing in Davis this week, I made one for myself on a slow afternoon.

Toasted Marshmallow Milkshakes
Adapted from Noble Pig (my favorite food blog)

10 Jumbo marshmallows, plus a few for garnish
3 Cups Old Fashioned Vanilla ice cream
2 Cups milk
1 Tablespoon sour cream

Place the marshmallows on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Set the oven to broil and place the marshmallows on the top shelf. Watch as the marshmallows toast so that they don’t burn or catch on fire. Take them out once they are golden and let them cool.
Put all of the ingredients in a blender, except the extra marshmallows for garnish. Blend the ingredients until you have the right consistency and the marshmallows are broken up. Pour into glasses, top with marshmallows, and enjoy!

This was so simple, yet insanely tasty! You can taste the toasted marshmallow flavor so clearly. There were little pieces of marshmallow in the milkshake that were still nice and gooey from being toasted! Mmm, so delicious.
