Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake!
I would describe myself more savory than sweet when it comes to food. None times out of ten, I will pick chips over chocolate. But when I do have a sweet tooth, I look for pure decadence. I have mentioned The Hamilton in DC because they are simply the best for sushi happy hour and bringing bold flavors together in their food. When I have ordered dessert there, it usually is one of their cakes or beignets. However, the Toasted Marshmallow milkshake caught my eye. I asked the waitress her opinion and she said it was popular, but seemed super sweet to her. I tried it and it was the best thing I’ve ever tasted. It is presented in a tall glass and jumbo straw. Even though I love ordering it from The Hamilton, I knew I could recreate the flavor at home for less than $8.00 a glass.
I know I say it all the time, but Pinterest has everything. No matter how crazy the recipe, I can always find something similar on there. I went searching for a dupe recipe and found several. I picked up marshmallows from Whole Foods and got the rest of the ingredients from the local grocery store. There were a few ways to toast the marshmallows for the signature taste. Instead of standing over an open flame, I toasted them in the oven on broil with the door open. The instructions were to cut them in half so you could achieve a deeper toasty flavor instead of leaving them whole. I placed them on parchment paper and watched in amazement. After they toasted, I put them in a blender cup with the ice cream, milk and a little vanilla extract. I prefer a thicker milkshake, so I added more ice cream. The flavor was almost identical to The Hamilton. I toasted a whole marshmallow for presentation and served it in a mason jar glass.
The flavor of the milkshake was so rich and decadent. It was almost similar to a s’more without the chocolate and graham crackers. I will definitely be making this milkshake again. Also if you are feeling like an extra kick, you can also make it boozy for your enjoyment!
