Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Chilling and Freezing Times: 4 hours
Total Time: 4 hours 30 minutes
Servings: 12


  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup sugar divided
  • 2 cups whole milk
  •  cups heavy cream
  • Pinch Kosher salt
  • 10 oz marshmallows large, or jumbo, leave a few for garnish, if desired.
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  •  cups graham cracker roughly chopped, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 cup chocolate sauce click for recipe
  • 1 chocolate bar for garnish, optional


  • Add the egg yolks and sugar to a medium-sized bowl. Use a hand mixer on low speed or whisk, and beat until the mixture is pale and slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
  • Next, in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk together the milk, cream, ½ cup of sugar, and salt. Bring the mixture to a low simmer.
  • Now, once the cream mixture has started to simmer, whisk about ⅓ of the hot cream mixture into the yolk/sugar mixture. Whisk to incorporate, and now add another ⅓ of the mixture, stir again. Leave the remaining cream in the saucepan, gently simmering.
  • Return the egg/cream mixture back to the saucepan with the remaining simmering cream mixture, and stir to incorporate.
  • Using a wooden spoon, stir the mixture constantly over low heat until it thickens slightly and coats the back of the spoon. DO NOT boil, or the yolk will overcook...this only takes a few minutes.
  • Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer and discard the vanilla pod. Bring to room temperature (you can place the bowl in an ice bath, without submerging, to expedite cooling).
  • Turn on broiler to high.
  • Place marshmallows on a shallow baking sheet lined with parchment paper and broil for 2 - 3 minutes (keep a close eye on them, they brown quickly). Remove from oven and quickly flip the marshmallows. Roast again, but be careful, they'll brown even faster the second time.
  • Let the marshmallows cool slightly, then place them in the blender.
  • Add the cooled custard to the marshmallows in the blender. And add another ½ cup of cream and the vanilla extract. Puree until well blended and smooth.
  • Pour into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate 4 hours, or overnight (overnight is best).


  • Make the chocolate sauce and let it cool (you can do this up to 1 week in advance).  (Link to recipe in the Ingredients list).
  • Remove the cream mixture from the refrigerator and whisk again. Pour mixture into your ice cream maker and follow manufacturer instructions. During the last 5 minutes, fold in the graham cracker pieces.
  • The ice cream will be thick, but still very soft. Transfer to a container with a lid, or leave in the ice maker bowl and cover with foil. Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours, or even better, overnight.

Assemble the S'mores Ice Cream

  • In an ice cream parlor glass, or bowl, add a couple of spoonfuls of the chocolate sauce on the bottom. Layer in one level of churned iced cream and then spoon more of the chocolate sauce. Continue adding ice cream and chocolate, in layers.
  • Garnish with a piece of graham cracker, a chocolate bar, and a toasted marshmallow, if desired. Serve at once.
