Bobby Flay's Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake


Lactose intolerant readers, turn back now.  Ahead lies a recipe filled with milk, ice cream and toasted marshmallow goodness.  You have been forewarned!
What you are about to witness is one of the best drinks I have ever experienced.  I've been craving a DQ Blizzard for about a month now but never actually go out to get one.  However, I was at the library the other day and as I was checking out their cookbook selection, one title in particular jumped off the shelf:  Bobby Flay's Burgers, Fries & Shakes, yes, yes and yes, please!  The library is a great resource for trying out cookbooks to see if they have enough good recipes to invest in a copy for yourself.  This cookbook is great so far - just the fact that his signature burger is topped with potato chips makes my heart go pitter patter.

Anyway, while flipping through the milkshake section, I came across a recipe for Toasted Marshmallow Milkshakes and I was sold.  DQ can wait in line, there's a new milkshake in town.  Bobby recommends throwing in some chocolate and crushed graham crackers if you want the full s'more effect, but I think it tastes fabulous as is.  
Bobby Flay's Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake

makes one 16-ounce milkshake or two 8-ounce milkshakes (I drank a 16-ouncer, no problem)

Nonstick cooking spray
9 large marshmallows (I made a couple extra to plop on top for decoration)
1/4 cup whole milk
11 ounces vanilla ice cream (about 1 3/4 cup packed)

Preheat broiler.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.

Arrange the marshmallows on the sheet, leaving space between them.  Place under the broiler until the tops are a deep golden brown color, about 40 seconds.  Remove from oven, carefully turn the marshmallows over, and broil until they are deep golden brown.  Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
I often leave my oven door opened a crack when broiling so I can keep an eye on things.
 Here they are after the first round of broiling.
 Carefully flip them.
Here they are after the round two of broiling - the browner they are, the more "toasty" your shake will taste.

Combine the marshmallows and milk in a blender and blend for 5 seconds.  Add the ice cream and blend until smooth, about 10 seconds.  Garnish with toasted marshmallows if desired.  Serve immediately.  Sip.  Smile!

Would you like a sip? 
What is your all-time favorite milkshake?  This one probably just took the spot for my number one!  Be back tomorrow with one last burger for you to make over Memorial day weekend.


  1. Wow that looks pretty freaking incredible!

  17. Wow! These look so good. What a great idea to use the library to check out cookbooks. I think my hubby may leave me if I purchase another cookbook that I don't use. I am just such a sucker. I want to check out those burgers with chips.
