Toasted Marshmallow Day

Chris and I watch a show on the Food Network called "The Best Thing I Ever Ate". The Food Network chefs share their favorite foods from different restaurants. We saw one that described Stand's Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake in NYC. The next time we were in NYC, we decided to swing by and give it a try. It was delicious! I recently found the recipe for it ... Mmmm!

Stand's Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake

3 scoops vanilla ice cream
1 tablespoon whole milk
1 large dollop of plain yogurt
5 marshmallows
Whipped cream

Put the milk, yogurt and then ice cream in the blender. Blend carefully, just until you get a "donut" - when you see the shake holding to the sides of the blender with a hollow core.

Toast marshmallows under a broiler until they just start to blacken evenly. Add three of the marshmallows to the blender, and whirl it just until they're all broken up and distributed evenly. Be careful not to overblend it, making it too melty.

Pour shake into a glass, top with a dollop of whipped cream, break the last two marshmallows on top, and serve with an extra-wide straw.
