My kids love marshmallows; toasted is even better! So when I found out that tomorrow is National Toasted Marshmallow Day, I knew I had to come up with something good. While it’s not quite an official holiday, there’s still reason to celebrate.
When I think of toasted marshmallows, I think of a campfire.
If you can’t get to a campfire, the good news is you can easily use your broiler instead.
I was amazed at how many delicious recipes I found that include toasted marshmallows:
(There’s even a recipe for a toasted marshmallow martini🍸)
But it was a unanimous vote in my house for one that’s not listed, the Toasted S’mores Milkshake. How could I say no to S’mores? Since it’s rare that we have marshmallows in the house, I knew this would be a special treat. The kids were so excited. The last time they had toasted marshmallows and S’mores was over a campfire at the Hershey Lodge. (That was so much fun! We love it there❤️)
I always let the kids help when I’m making something, but not this time. While it’s really easy to make, it can get messy if you’re not careful. I learned the hard way and left the marshmallows under the broiler a tad too long and found myself in a sticky melty mess. It’s best to take them out as soon as the tops are starting to brown and then they’ll be much more easy to transfer to the blender.
Be prepared when you’re making this (or anything with toasted marshmallows) that your kids (and possibly your husband) will be watching your every move, waiting to grab one of those perfectly golden-brown puffs of heaven straight out of the oven.
To get the nice graham cracker coating around the rim of the glass, pour some chocolate syrup into a bowl and then dip the rim of each glass into it. Then dip each chocolate-syrup-coated rim into a bowl of crushed graham crackers. We had a lot of fun with the recipe and made it even more special by adding whipped cream and Hershey bars on the side🍫
Once they were served, my house was quiet, actually the most quiet it has ever been. All I could hear was the clinking of the spoon against the glass to get the extra chocolate sauce on the side, and then a request for more. Yum!
