We're having a great time celebrating National S'mores Day! On a hot day, how about a cool version of S'mores? You got it! And I tried this out on my grandkids and they did a bang up job both preparing the Icy Shake as well as slurping it down :-)
What You Need:
1 cup chocolate ice cream
1/2 cup light cream
3 Tablespoons marshmallow crème
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mini marshmallows (garnish)
Crushed graham crackers (garnish)
Mini-chocolate morsels (garnish)
Whipped cream (optional)
Creamy peanut butter (optional)
Get out the blender. Let the kids measure and pour the chocolate ice cream, light cream, marshmallow crème and vanilla extract in a blender Blend until smooth.
Pour into glasses and top with marshmallows. If you want the marshmallows toasted, then place them under the broiler for 20-30 seconds only (yes, the adult helper needs to do this, please).
If you opt for the whipped cream, then add a squirt or a dollop and then garnish with crushed graham crackers and chocolate morsels.
Note: Make this a really special treat and use special tall glasses. Put a shallow line of creamy peanut butter on a piece of waxed paper. Roll the lip of the glass through the peanut butter and then roll it in graham cracker crumbs. The kids will love it!

Happy cooking with kids,
