I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite parts of eating cereal is when the cereal is gone and you are left with the yummy milk at the bottom. I slurp that up!
Years ago, I took that concept and started to make ice cream out of it. Since St. Patty’s Day is coming up, I thought why not try it with one of my favorite cereals from when I was a kid… Lucky Charms. And just like the cereal, Lucky Charms Ice Cream
is magically delicious!
You will need an ice cream maker to make this, but you know you wanted to buy one anyway…here’s your excuse!
To make the ice cream:
Take 1 cup milk and the Lucky Charms cereal (keep the 1 cup of marshmallows separate) and place in an air tight bowl and let sit overnight (or at least 8 hours) in the fridge.
In a bowl, stir together 1/4 cup cream and the cornstarch; set slurry aside.
In a 4-qt. saucepan, whisk together remaining heavy and the cream, sugar, syrup, and salt; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook for 4 minutes; stir in slurry.
Let the mixture cool to room temperature. Combine the cream mixture and the milk/Lucky Charms mixture into a blender. Blender until the mixture is smooth and no cereal chunks are left.
Pour mixture into an airtight container and refrigerate for 2 hours. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker; process according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Pour soft ice cream into a bowl. Fold in the Lucky Charms Marshmallows and try to distribute them evenly.
Transfer ice cream to a storage container and freeze until set about 3-4 hours.
Scoop and serve with extra marshmallows if you like. Peabody loves ice hockey (she plays!) and all things baking! Check out her great stuff at her blog site Culinary Concoctions by Peabody and her Tablespoon profile
