This scrumptious marshmallow ice cream and creamy chocolate ganache sandwiched between graham crackers is a cool twist on your campfire favourite.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup 35% cream
  • 1/2 300-mL can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows

Ganache

  • 1/4 cup 35% cream
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 80 g milk chocolate , chopped (about 2/3 cup)
  • 32 square graham-crackers , softened overnight (see Kitchen tip)

Instructions

  1. Position rack in centre of oven, then preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil. Line a 9×9-in. baking pan (or 8×8-in. for a slightly thicker ice cream layer) with plastic, leaving overhang on all sides.
  2. Ice cream: Beat 1 cup cream in a medium bowl, using an electric mixer on medium, until stiff peaks form, 2 to 4 min. Reduce speed to low and beat in sweetened condensed milk just until combined. Mixture should be smooth and fluffy.
  3. Arrange marshmallows tightly in a single layer on prepared sheet. Broil until marshmallows are dark golden but not burnt, 2 to 3 min. Immediately beat into ice cream mixture. Scrape into prepared pan. Freeze until firm, 6 hrs.
  4. Ganache: Combine ¼ cup cream and butter in a small saucepan set over medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, until butter melts and mixture comes to a simmer, 2 to 4 min. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate until melted. Scrape into a medium bowl. Set aside until completely cooled. Ganache should thicken up slightly as it cools.
  5. Remove ice cream from pan by pulling up plastic. Cut into 16 squares.
  6. To serve, arrange ice cream squares on half of the crackers. Top each with 2 tsp ganache. Sandwich with remaining crackers. Serve immediately.

Kitchen tip

Soften graham crackers overnight by placing them in a sealed container with 2 slices of bread spritzed lightly with water. The softened texture will make it easier to bite into the ice cream sandwiches. Omit this step, if desired.
