Marshmallow Ice Cream

Home » Dessert Recipes » Marshmallow Ice Cream Jump To Recipe

We were in picturesque Victoria, British Columbia a few summers ago.  The fabulous Empress Hotel on the Inner Harbor set the tone for this charming town with the European feel. One evening, after dinner, Katie ordered some vanilla ice cream at one of the local bistros.  I had just one bite, but will never forget the smooth, creamy texture and the subtle taste of marshmallow creme.  When I saw a recipe for marshmallow ice cream on 52 Kitchen Adventures, I printed it off immediately…and then tweaked it a bit for our taste buds.  I made our favorite Fudge Sauce as a topper…yup, they all loved it~

  23. I’ve (unsuccessfully) tried Clara Bow’s marshmallow ice cream recipe, but I’d love to give the idea another try. Of course, who knows what kind of cook Clara Bow was? It probably got in the way of being a flapper.
