Serves: 7 ice cream sandwiches
Marshmallow Ice Cream
S'mores Assembly
  1. To make the marshmallow ice cream, whisk the lite coconut milk with the starch in a medium bowl until the starch dissolves.
  2. Place the full fat coconut milk and sugar in a saucepan and heat over medium heat, whisking often, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a low boil. Turn the heat down to medium-low. Whisk in the lite coconut milk mixture, and continue whisking as it bubbles and thickens slightly for 2 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Let cool while you prepare the marshmallows.
  4. Spread the marshmallows on a baking sheet. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned - keep a close eye - the timing may vary based on the type of marshmallows you use, your oven, and how close they are to the element. Flip the marshmallows and broil another 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool for 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Place the coconut milk mixture and the marshmallows in your blender and puree until smooth. Let cool 10 minutes, then place in the refrigerator for 3 hours or overnight. If your ice cream maker insert needs to be frozen 24 hours too, make sure you put it in the freezer.
  6. Line an 8x8-inch baking dish with one piece of plastic wrap, rising over the edges). Give the mixture in your blender another quick blend, then process it in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions. Once it is a soft serve consistency, scrape it into the prepared baking dish, even out, and freeze for several hours, or until firm.
  7. To assemble the s'mores ice cream sandwiches, melt the chocolate chunks with the coconut oil in a medium bowl. Let sit to cool slightly.
  8. Pull the marshmallow ice cream up from the dish and turn out onto a cutting board. Peel the plastic wrap off. Cut into 2¼ to 2½ inch circles or squares. Place one shape onto a cookie turned upside down. Drizzle with the melted chocolate (be quick, before it sets up!) and top with another cookie, right side up. Repeat with the remaining cookies, ice cream and chocolate.
  9. Wrap tightly and place the s'mores ice cream sandwiches in the freezer to solidify and store. Freeze any remaining ice cream in a smaller dish or as ice cream bars if you wish!
