Food / Film: Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake + There Will Be Blood

A completely obvious reference but apt nonetheless. This milkshake is so utterly delicious I had it twice in one day. It's not as sticky sweet as I was afraid it would be (thank God), but instead has a smooth vanilla flavor accented by a super yummy toasty marshmallowness. Really really you must make this milkshake and watch There Will Be Blood because they are both fantastic.

{Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake}

makes two small or one large milkshake
recipe from Joy the Baker 

8-10 large marshmallows
3 large scoops vanilla ice cream or a heaping 1-cup of vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place marshmallows on  skewer and toast until slightly charred over a gas flame. If you don’t have skewers or a gas range, you can toast the marshmallows on a sheet tray in the broiler for 2 or 3 minutes. Keep an eye on the marshmallows as they’re in the oven. They’re liable to burst into marshmallow flames pretty quick. Place on a plate to cool slightly.

In a blender mix together ice cream, milk, vanilla extract and toasted marshmallows. Save one or two toasted marshmallows to top the milkshake(s). Blend well. For a thinner milkshake add more milk. If you’d like it a bit thicker… add more ice cream. Pour into glasses and top with toasted marshmallows. Drink...your...milkshake!

"Here, if you have a milkshake, and I have a milkshake, and I have a straw. There it is, that's a straw, you see? You watching? And my straw reaches across the room, and starts to drink your milkshake. I...drink...your...milkshake!"
