S’mores Cupcake Ice Cream Sandwiches
Makes around 1 dozen cupcakes

Marshmallow Ice Cream

2 C half and half
1 10-oz. bag of large marshmallows
2 C heavy cream
2 T vanilla extract

In a large pot, combine half and half with marshmallows. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until marshmallows have completely melted. Remove from heat and let cool briefly. Then place in fridge to cool for 20-30 more minutes, until chilled and slightly thickened.

In the meantime, whip heavy cream until you have soft peaks. Fold into cooled marshmallow mixture and add vanilla extract. Stir until everything is combined. Place in ice cream maker and follow manufacturer’s directions for making ice cream.

Graham Cracker Crust

2 C graham cracker crumbs
1/4 C sugar
8 T unsalted butter, melted
Pinch of salt

Line 2 cupcake pans with paper liners (you’ll need around 24 crusts total if you want to make a bottom and top for each cupcake). Preheat oven to 350° F.

In a small bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, sugar, melted butter and salt with a fork. Drop around 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture into each cupcake liner and press down firmly. Bake for about 5-10 minutes (until edges of crust are golden). Remove from oven and set half aside. Leave oven set at 350° F and prepare cupcake batter.

Chocolate Cupcakes

1 C + 1 T sugar
14 T unbleached all-purpose flour*
7 T unsweetened cocoa powder*
3/4 t baking powder
3/4 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 large egg
1/2 C milk
1/4 C vegetable oil
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 C boiling water

Sift together sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir lightly with a fork to combine. In a mixing bowl, combine egg, milk, vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Combine dry and wet ingredients and mix on low speed for a minute, then medium speed for 1-2 more minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl in between if needed. Add boiling water and mix just until combined. (Note: The batter will be very thin at this point.)

Pour 1/4 cup of batter on top of half of the crusts (mine were a little over 3/4 full). Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until tops are firm and toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean. Let cool completely.

To assemble:

Slice the rounded top off of the cupcakes to level them. Place a small scoop of ice cream on top and flatten with the back of a spoon. On top of the ice cream, place one of the baked graham cracker crusts. Enjoy quickly or place in the freezer until you do!

Many thanks 52 Kitchen Adventures!

I got a confession to make. I am food addict, over-indulgent! I crave for anything especially sweets, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, strawberries, halo-halo, leche flan, banana Q, breads, pasta, Nasi Goreng....tell me what you got in your fridge ;-D. Thank heavens for I got my mum's genes, I can gain and lose pounds that easy and quick. I am here to share with you my food recipe collection (almost forgotten in a corner of my room) and search for new, exciting recipes, meet good people, and discover more about the world of baking. I am no professional baker or chef (just a wanna-be for now) but we'll get there in time. In sha Allah. Afterall, DREAMS just got to start somewhere, and it starts right here, right now! Meantime enjoy this food journey with me among other stuff....amigos to the kitchen! [Thank you for visiting my blog,you're always welcome to come by! Feel free to dig deep into the posts, much treasures there. And leave your comments, I'd appreciate your words....] [P.S. Borrowed articles/photos can be deleted anytime, please advise.Thank you.]
