FROZEN S’MORES

I’m no stranger to a good s’more.

I’m a firm believer that there’s little better in this world than a nice toasted marshmallow sandwiched in-between two graham crackers with melted chocolate oozing out the sides.

That is, unless, you’re faced with the alternative.

Fluffy frozen marshmallow-like whipped topping sandwiched between 2 graham crackers with slightly melted, gooey, slow-churned chocolate ice cream dripping down your arm.

Now that’s just summer on a plate right there.

Tell me you can look at that and turn it down in favor of a regular s’more.

If you can, I guess I can’t blame you.  Both are good.  And you really shouldn’t have to choose.

It’s reminds me of the terror that I feel on the cusp of Spring and Summer where the days just start getting warm enough to consider iced coffee.  I stand in line at Starbucks literally thinking in my head: “Okay, iced.”  “No.  Hot.”  “No, iced.  Final decision” and then get up there and order a hot beverage.

It’s torturous.  I almost wish they’d only serve iced coffee during certain times and hot coffee during others.  No I don’t.  But you know, any time where a decision is just made for me and I don’t need to debate every side of it from every possible angle is good in my book.

So what’s it gonna be?  Iced or hot?

Frozen S’mores

Makes 9

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 quart container of slow-churned chocolate ice cream (I used Breyer’s)
  • Container of cool-whip
  • Box of graham crackers

Directions:

  • Allow ice cream to sit out on the counter until softened (not melting)
  • Scoop ice cream out of the container into a 9×13 pan, smoothing out until evenly dispersed
  • Freeze for 3 hours
  • Remove from freezer, add container of cool whip on top and smooth over with a spatula until evenly dispersed.
  • Place back into the freezer until fully frozen (I left mine overnight)
  • Remove from freezer and using a graham cracker, measure the size of the square that needs to be cut.  Scoop out squares of ice cream/cool-whip mixture and place between two graham crackers.
  • Serve immediately or freeze.
