Toasted Marshmallow Shake

I saw this recipe prepared on an episode of The View. It’s from the book Good Stuff by Chef Spike Mendelsohn. Is there any other flavor more memorable and more reminiscent of summer evenings than the toasted marshmallow? Not in my mind. This shake is quintessential summer… ice cream and toasted marshmallows. Yum!

Chef Spike’s Toasted Marshmallow Shake

1 16-ounce bag jumbo marshmallows

2 cups whole milk

2 cups creamy vanilla ice cream

1 tablespoon sour cream

Preheat the broiler.

Reserve 4 marshmallows for garnish. Spread out the remaining marshmallows on a baking sheet in a single layer. Place the sheet under the broiler and cook, stirring once or twice, until completely charred, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

Repeat with the remaining 4 marshmallows, but cook just until toasted slightly golden, about 1 minute. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

Add the milk, ice cream, sour cream, and burnt marshmallows to a blender. Blend for 5 minutes.

Pour into four 8-ounce glasses and garnish each glass with a golden marshmallow.
