If you follow me on Pinterest, you know that I have a lot of boards and pin a lot of stuff (you guys might need to stage an intervention). I love going back and looking at my pins for ideas, but have never actually done anything with them, until now. I decided that in 2012, I need to actually try some of these awesome ideas that I saved. This is my first attempt.
One of my favorite cooking blogs, Joy the Baker, posted this recipe a while back (and I pinned it). Toasted marshmallows are one of my favorite indulgences, and the idea of turning this into a drink was way too much temptation for me to handle. We followed her recipe here, with the addition of chocolate syrup (to make it a chocolate milkshake, instead of vanilla). I swear by chocolate syrup, instead of chocolate ice cream itself for shakes. I just think it tastes better that way. Also, husband added some graham cracker crumbles to his, to make it a liquid s'more. Well played husband. Well played.
I used my gas range to toast the marshmallows, and it worked well. It only took me about three tries to create the non-charred version you see here. Note: They do catch on fire quickly (but taste perfectly fine).
As always, I would love to hear from you if you make this (or even if you have already given it a whirl). Enjoy!

And on a totally separate note, how about Madonna at the Super Bowl last night? At 53 years old, she still rocks my socks off. If you didn't catch it, here it is. If you are a fan, this is worth watching. If you aren't a fan, this might just change your mind. This is old school Madonna at her best.
