With a newborn baby this summer we decided not to get out camping. This means a summer without campfires, without roasted marshmallows, and without s'mores. So of course I'm looking up ways to bring us the tastes of camping and summer. Bring on the s'mores ice cream recipes! I've adapted this recipe from multiple sources because I really love the base ice cream directions from the last post on strawberry rhubarb pie ice cream and I couldn't find a perfect s'mores ice cream recipe that used roasted marshmallows. I hope if you can't get out camping that you enjoy this recipe as much as we are!

Ok so we know you're not going to start a fire or go camping JUST to get the roasted marshmallows for this recipe, so you can do what we did....Oven Broil them!
Putting it all together:
This recipe we only used the ice cream machine for the base. Pour the base into the machine and mix until an ice cream texture is achieved (approximately 20 mins or based on machine directions). This time we used a Tovolo glide-a-scoop ice cream container (my personal favourite and no I'm not getting paid by them haha). We layered the ice cream in the container, then the marshmallows and graham crumbs and chocolate fudge. Add another layer of ice cream and repeat until you run out of ice cream (you will definitely have leftover fillings). This layering technique allows you to get that perfect 'mixed scoop' look when you serve the ice cream. If you'd prefer not to have hard frozen chunks of marshmallow and graham crumbs in your ice cream, then wrap them up and leave them on the counter to top the ice cream with when serving. Another suggestion my husband made was when the marshmallows are hot to mix it into the ice cream base in the machine to get the marshmallow flavour dispersed more (we will try this the next time we make this ice cream).
