S'mores Oreo Cookie Ice Cream for National S'mores Day!

  It's another food holiday today and this one is extra special to me.
August 10 is National S'mores Day and y'all know I am obsessed with love anything and everything S'mores! So I decided to create a homemade S'mores Ice Cream and to make it extra special I added chopped S'mores Oreo cookies instead of traditional graham crackers to my ice cream mix. The result was a smooth vanilla base with rich chocolate pieces, ooey-gooey marshmallows, and crunchy chunks of S'mores Oreos. My kids love to eat this summertime treat and it tastes just like a S'mores minus the mess and hassle of melting over the fire!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 7oz jar marshmallow cream {approx. 1/2 cup}
  • 1 cup S'mores Oreo cookies {about 10 cookies}, roughly chopped
  • 2 Hershey chocolate bars, roughly chopped

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix together milk, cream, and sugar for one minute until combined.
  2. Add vanilla then spoon marshmallow cream into the bowl and mix until combined.          
  3. Turn the ice cream maker machine on and pour the mixture into the freezer bowl.
  4.  Mix until thickened, about 20 minutes. 
  5. In the last few minutes, mix in the chopped Hershey bars and S'mores Oreos. 
  6. Then pour soft ice cream into a loaf pan and freeze until hardened {about 3 hours up to overnight}.
  7. Scoop into bowls or cones and serve.

 
 To make this S'mores Ice Cream extra special I add marshmallow cream, chopped Hershey's chocolate bars, and S'mores Oreo cookies. These treats on their own are the bomb- just imagine them together with a creamy vanilla ice cream!

I like to use a mixture of cream and milk for my ice cream base.

In a large bowl, mix together milk, cream, and sugar.

Blend together for one minute until combined.
Add vanilla and spoon marshmallow cream into the bowl
and mix until combined.         .
Pour the mixture into your running frozen ice cream maker bowl.
Run according to ice cream maker instructions.
Mine runs for 20 minutes.
It will be a soft ice cream.
Roughly chop up two Hershey's chocolate bars {or one large King size}.
Roughly chop up about 10 S'mores Oreo cookies.
 I added to a plastic baggies and crushed with my hands.
You don't want to crush them too fine.
I like having the chunks in there.
Now sprinkle in the chocolate and Oreos and mix.
I like to freeze my ice cream for a few hours longer so it is harder and more solid.
I pour my soft ice cream into a loaf pan and smooth down.
Place in the freezer until hardened.
I freeze for at least 3 hours or up to overnight.
 Scoop into cups or cones and serve.
Both my little foodies loved the ice cream. No surprise there!
A cold scoop of ice cream is a great way to beat the heat!
Matching ice cream pants for the win!
This homemade ice cream is perfect for a summertime treat.
