Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake

A couple summers ago, while living in New Jersey, we had the opportunity to meet some of my Indiana cousins for dinner in New York City. They had seen a show on The Food Network that ranted and raved about a restaurant called The Stand. They were known for their burgers and milkshakes.

A majority of us decided to try their Toasted Marshmallow milkshake. Oh my!!! It was DE-LISH!!!! It tasted just like a marshmallow toasted over the campfire! A couple days after that trip to NYC, I googled "Toasted Marshmallow milkshake" because I needed another one without having to drive all the way to NYC! I came across this recipe that came from one of Bobby Flay's cookbooks called Bobby Flay's Burgers, Fries & Shakes. It tastes very similar to the shake I drank at The Stand and is very easy to make at home.

I made these delicious shakes for our friends the night before we ran our Shamrocks & Shenanigans 5K. They were a huge hit.

cooking spray
9 large marshmallows
1/4 cup whole milk
11 ounces premium vanilla ice cream

1. Preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with nonstick spray. Arrange the marshmallows flat on the baking sheet and place under the broiler until the top is a deep golden brown color, about 30 seconds. Remove from the oven and carefully turn the marshmallows over and broil until the top is deep golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.

2. Combine the marshmallows and milk in a blender and blend for 5 seconds. Add the ice cream and blend until smooth, about 10 seconds. Serve immediately.

Serves 1.
