Happy campers of all ages will love Frozen S'mores. The recipe calls for vanilla and chocolate ice cream, but try any flavor that complements the graham crackers and chocolate.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 6 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
- 14 or so graham crackers
- 1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened on microwave's defrost setting for 30 seconds
- 1 pint chocolate ice cream, softened on microwave's defrost setting for 30 seconds
- 12 large marshmallows
Microwave cream and chocolate in a 1-quart glass measuring cup on high power until very hot, about 2 minutes. Whisk until chocolate melts into a smooth sauce.
Line an 8-inch square metal pan with plastic wrap, leaving an overhang. Arrange 1/3 of the graham crackers over bottom, cutting the final few with a knife to fit. Drizzle 1/3 of the sauce over the crackers; spread evenly. Freeze until chocolate is just set, 5 to 10 minutes.
Spread vanilla ice cream over the chocolate. Top with another cracker layer as before. Drizzle another 1/3 of the sauce over the crackers; spread evenly. Freeze until just set, 5 to 10 minutes. Spread chocolate ice cream over the crackers. Arrange a final layer of crackers over the ice cream. Spread remaining sauce over crackers.
Freeze until set, about 2 hours, or double-wrap in plastic and freeze up to 5 days.
To serve, lift dessert from pan; discard plastic wrap. Halve the dessert; cut each half into 6 slices. Return to freezer briefly. Toast marshmallows over a flame and serve alongside s'mores.
