S’mores Ice Cream Cake

Recipe from Jenn Johns (Cookies Cupcakes and Cardio)

Serves 10-12 people

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • ¼ cup melted butter

  • quartered graham crackers

  • 1 ½ cups chocolate ganache

  • 1 ½ litres chocolate ice cream (softened)

  • 400 grams mini marshmallows

 

Procedure:

Preheat oven to 350F.  

  1. In a small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter.  Mix until combined.  Press into the bottom of a 9” springform pan.  

  2. Place pan into oven, and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.  Allow to cool completely.

  3. Pour ganache over top of cooled crust, and smooth with an offset spatula or knife.  Place into freezer for 10-15 minutes to set.

  4. Pour softened ice cream on top of set ganache.  Smooth with offset spatula or knife. Allow ice cream to harden for at least 4-6 hours, or overnight.

  5. When ready to serve, preheat oven broiler to high.

  6. Remove 2 cups of marshmallows from the 400 grams and set aside.  Using the remaining marshmallows, melt them in the microwave by heating for 60-90 seconds.  Stir until smooth and no lumps remain.  Immediately spread onto ice cream layer.  

  7. Top marshmallow cream layer with mini marshmallows and place under broiler for 45-60 seconds, or until golden brown.  Watch carefully as the marshmallows will burn quickly!

  8. Serve immediately, slicing with a hot knife.

  9. Remaining cake pieces can be kept in the freezer in a sealed container, and are best consumed within 2-3 days.
