No Churn S’mores Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk (1 can)
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup graham cracker pieces

Directions

  1. Gather your ingredients and pour the whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk into a bowl
  2. Now start beating it. I started with a hand mixer, but then I realized that it was going to take about 5 minutes, so I transferred it to my Kitchen Aid mixer. Way simpler! You can stop beating once soft peaks have formed.
  3. Add the cups of milk chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and graham cracker pieces to your creamy mixture and stir together.
  4. Scoop the mixture into a pan, cover with cellophane, and allow to freeze completely.
  5. Now all that is left to do is to scoop it out and dig in! YUM!
