Chocolate + marshmallow + graham cracker is a killer combination!
Cold or hot. Whether you have a campfire or not. Anywhere, anytime.
So, I am all for combining these flavors even when it doesn’t actually mean toasting a marshmallow. Yes, s’mores are great when they are made the traditional way. But why limit ourselves? Why deny ourselves the comforting goodness of s’mores?
My latest non-traditional s’mores creation is the S’mores Milkshake. It’s a rich and creamy chocolate milkshake with a swirl of marshmallow topping and a graham cracker tucked in the top. Divine.
Tips for a Great Milkshake
- Use whole milk – This makes the shake thicker and creamier. Yes, you can use nonfat milk or any other kind, but it’s really not the same.
- Use really good ice cream – Yes, the cheap stuff is budget-conscious, but the good stuff makes the milkshake great. Go wild with the flavors.
- Don’t add ice – Ice waters down the concoction in a gross way. Skip it. You really don’t need it.
- Add stuff you like – Don’t be afraid to mix in a banana or berries or extra chocolate. That can take the milkshake from good to really great.
