Who doesn’t love S’mores? Even if you’re not a camper, you’ve probably sat around the fire pit in your backyard or had some your parents toasted in the oven for you when you were a kid. I’ll even admit to using the microwave a few desperate times when I was craving them. I don’t know what it is about them, because individually I like all of these things but I’m not exactly over the moon about them. All together? I LOVE them. Seriously, love. I try not to keep the stuff in the house if it can be avoided for fear that I will have a late-night movie-watching chow session featuring only s’mores.
So then I was wondering what I could do to take these bad boys to the next level. Could classic s’mores be beaten? Turns out yes, yes they can. But only when you turn them into a s’mores milkshake. These are ridiculously yummy and decadent. Make sure you have a few friends around to eat these or you might eat them all yourself.
For this you will need: marshmallows – I used big and small, but you could get away with one or the other, chocolate syrup, two chocolate bars, graham crackers, marshmallow fluff, ice cream and milk.
Take 18 graham crackers and put them inside of plastic bag, get all the air out and seal it. Then with your hand or a mallet smash them to bits! This is a good exercise if you’ve had a rough day – smashing with intent to create dessert. While you’re doing this, melt a stick of butter in a bowl until its completely melted (about one minute in the microwave). Once you’ve got your graham cracker’s all smashed, add them into the bowl while stirring. Mix until all the graham crackers are wet, and you can smush them. Distribute a portion of this into each glass. Press it down with a spatula.
Then add in a handful of small marshmallows (or one to two large ones). If you want it to look like the photos here, use your chocolate syrup to line the insides of the glasses and smear the rim of the glasses with marshmallow fluff. Use the remnants of your graham crackers and smash them into the fluff.
Next, scoop several large scoops of ice cream (6 cups) into a big container you can use your immersion mixer or a blender, add in 1 cup of marshmallow fluff, 1/2 cup of chocolate syrup, and 1 1/4 cup of milk. This is how I like my milkshakes but you can add or subtract milk and chocolate syrup as needed to get the consistency and flavor you want. Blend thoroughly, and pour into your prepped glasses.
Then make a few s’mores with your remaining graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate squares. Heating the marshmallows through your method of choice. A microwave works in a pinch! Top each glass with a s’more, and ta-da! You have s’more milkshakes.
You can go extra crazy topping with the chocolate syrup if you want.
