Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake



Are you one of those people who perfectly toasts their marshmallows to a golden brown?

How on earth do you do that!?  I don’t get it.  You must have the patience of a marshmallow saint.

I’m a burn-and-blow kind of girl.  Turn the marshmallow into a torch… blow it out… repeat.

The patience technique  baffles me.  In fact… I secretly looooove to brush my marshmallow torch against the slow rollers and set their marshmallows on fire.  They totally hate that.

Marshmallow meets open flame… it’s important in this recipe.


I had no idea that this whole Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake was a thing.  Amazing.  Spike Mendelsohn… that cute dude with the hat from Top Chef invented this thing.  Nice work.  High five.


Now!  I’m going to need you to super toast your marshmallows.  Don’t be afraid of a little black char.  In fact… I say welcome the char.  It’s those itty bitty burny bits that really make this Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake taste like…. you know… a TOASTED Marshmallow Milkshake.

Incidentally… this shake is so good… SO GOOD… that I’ve made it twice in one day.  In fact, I’m drinking one now… I also have the heater on in my house.  This totally makes sense.

Ps.  I know I’m supposed to be making cranberry and pumpkin recipes right now…  I just needed to make this happen.  So do you.


Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake

adapted just slightly from Spike Mendelsohn’s recipe

makes two small or one large milkshake (about 2 1/2 cups)

Print this Recipe!

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.  Enjoy on the quick.

  1. The Stand, a favorite burger place here in NYC, makes a to-die-for toasted marshmallow milkshake. I don’t even like marshmallows and yet I have to order it every time I go. I really really hope this tastes the same as theirs!

  2. u r AMAZING! ? marshmallow anything. in fact, i normally keep marshmallow creme in my pantry so that i can indulge often.

  3. If we burned our marshmallows when we were kids, we gave them to our grandma, who loved them charred. My dad says she used to eat a “charcoal breakfast”: burnt toast, black coffee, and cigarettes. Oh the 60s…

    I am a fairly patient marshmallow toaster, but I sometimes get impatient with hotdogs. My brother is infuriatingly brilliant at being patient ~ I sometimes sabotage his hotdogs too!

  4. I’m not patient with marshmallows either. I just put them in my toaster oven (for smores purposes) until they are a nice blackened brown and then blow to cool and then down it goes!

    I have to try it with a milkshake!

  5. AHHHHHH This makes me crave Good Stuff Eatery (one of Spike’s restaurants here in DC). The shakes are amazing don’t even get me started on the burgers or fries or onion rings! This shake is great from GS or made at home AND so is his milkyway milk shake that one is actually liquid milkyway it is amazing! sigh Joy now I am craving a milkshake at 9:30 in the morning. :)
