Marshmallow Ice Cream Recipe

Yup, SERIOUSLY, Marshmallow Ice Cream.  And YES it is as AMAZING as it sounds.  I love making ice cream and my ice cream maker (best birthday gift EVER) has been getting quite the work out this week!  This recipe is a basic vanilla custard ice cream with toasted marshmallows mixed in, easy and tasty.  You'll be SO glad you made it. This Marshmallow ice cream is great plain, but I'm dying to try it with my Hot Fudge... Or maybe with chilled hot chocolate as a float?  Okay, I'm totally inspired and Mmmm, I'm TOTALLY doing that tomorrow!  My husband thought it would be terrible and almost refused to try it, but even he was totally won over my this treat! The flavor all comes from … Finish reading (let's face it, see more pictures) here...

Graham Cracker Crust Recipe

This is my go to Graham Cracker crust recipe.  For cheesecakes, pies and S'more donut topping.  It's easy and tastes AMAZING.  You can use regular honey graham crackers, cinnamon or chocolate for different flavors. I'm sharing my caramel toffee ice cream pie over at 30 handmade days you should check it out! I also like to use ginger snaps or ground nuts.  As long as the ground "crackers" amount stays the same your good!  But the classic, basic honey graham cracker crust is always a good way to go. You can use a food processor to turn the crackers into crumbs... OR manual labor...  This is a great job when you want to get your frustrations out OR a great job for your kids. … Finish reading (let's face it, see more pictures) here...

S’more Donut Recipe

Time for another S'more recipe!  I seriously had the hardest time NARROWING down the recipes I wanted to create and share for S''more week!  I''ll eventually try them all but for now I wanted to share a recipe that is two loves in one, S'mores and donuts in one, Mmmm Start out by using this homemade donut dough recipe. When it says to roll the dough out to 1/2 an inch roll it out to 1/4 of an inch instead.  And rather than using a donut cutter use a round cookie cutter or a glass.  I went with 3 1/2 inch circles. Next brush milk over half of the circles. Then add marshmallows and chocolate (I used MINI marshmallows and mini chocolate chips, but you could add chocolate … Finish reading (let's face it, see more pictures) here...

Stabilized Whipped Cream

I love fresh whipped cream, I'm not a big fan of store made dessert whipped toppings.  BUT some recipes call for that stabilized whipped topping, so why not make my own? It tastes better AND it's really easy! You really are just adding gelatin to the whipped cream your making.  There are a few tips and trips, like when to add it, but pretty much that's it!  This way it's stronger, you can use it in recipes, or pipe it even, like onto a pie or cake without it getting all melty! So you need whipping cream, vanilla and sugar, just like normal, and some gelatin and some water to dissolve it into!  Easy peasy, I always have these around! Pour the gelatin into the COLD water … Finish reading (let's face it, see more pictures) here...
