Today, I wanted to share with you one of my latest shenanigans:
Shenanigans //: Sweet desserts of the experimental kind that I create that are typically spontaneous in nature that do not necessarily meet my expectations in one way or the other.
This little shenanigan started out, in my head at least, as me doing my own version of the Burger King Lucky Charm Milkshake but after a bad case of failed-to-be dyed marshmallows, I decided to just turn it into a “smore” shake since I did have access to the smore necessities such as chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs and marshmallow fluff. I should rather insert here that I might as well emphasize ” milkshake” as in singular because that’s all I had enough ingredients for:
First, I put 8oz ( my solid guesstimate) of a Vanilla Ice Cream cup into the blender and then added my graham crackers, chocolate chips and lastly, marshmallow fluff. I then added a generous amount of milk and blended it all together.
Admittedly, I was expecting a more milkier/whiter mixture and it turned this light tan color but I realized that probably should have been expected with the graham crackers and chocolate chips though. I probably should have added more marshmallow fluff but since it was not mine, I did not want to be greedy.
After placing it in the freezer just so it could thicken up a little, you know chill down. I topped it with some heavy whipped topping, light graham crackers and more chocolate chips. Since, I don’t even like heavy whipped topping, that was totally just an addition for photograph purposes!
I thought, visually, it turned out to be really cute and I love the little Mason Jar that I got to put it in…once mastered, this just might make a great summer party treat! You got smores over the fire & cold smore drinks! But upon tasting, I felt that maybe the chocolate chips were overpowering the marshmallow taste…but then I am not really crazy about chocolate chips by themselves. The taste was not bad…but not GREAT. Note for next time, when in doubt….
