Ice cream s'mores- YUM


If you're not car sick from viewing the video on my previous blog, those who enjoyed the ice cream recipes in yesterday's Food section (which see) are going to love this one. It's built around Hagen Daz's Java Chip ice cream to make a chilly version of s'mores in a bowl. Makes these hot days much more worthwhile. This recipe serves 4.

Toasted Java Chip Crumble
6 to 8 honey graham cracker squares, divided
6 large marshmallows
2 cups Java Chip HÄAGEN-DAZS All Natural Ice Cream, divided
2 Tablespoons coarsely chopped pecans, toasted (optional)
Preheat broiler (or toaster oven) to medium and adjust rack to 6 inches from heat source.Place a piece of foil on a baking sheet.
Place 2 graham cracker squares in a small plastic bag. Crush with fingers or rolling pin into very fine crumbs. Break remaining graham crackers into bite-size pieces and divide between 4 serving dishes.
Dip a sharp knife in water and cut marshmallows in half. Place graham cracker crumbs in a small dish. Press cut side of marshmallows into crumbs. Place marshmallows crumb-side-down on prepared baking sheet.
Scoop one-half cup ice cream into each serving dish. Broil marshmallows for about 45 seconds or until golden brown. (Watch carefully to prevent burning or flaming!). Immediately lift marshmallows from pan with a thin spatula and place 3 in each dish. Sprinkle with nuts and remaining graham cracker crumbs.
