Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Dessert
Ice cream base
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Hot cocoa syrup
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 10 ounces dark chocolate
  • 1½ cup marshmallows, chopped, divided
  • ½ tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together cocoa syrup ingredients and heat on medium, stirring occasionally, until mixture is thick enough to coat a spoon. Set aside and cool.
  2. In a medium bowl add the whipping cream and using a hand mixer, whip until stiff peaks form.
  3. In a large bowl combine sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract and ½ cup of cocoa syrup until incorporated.
  4. Add whipped cream to the condensed milk mixture and gently fold together until mixed together. Measure out ½ cup of chopped marshmallows and set aside to use later for marshmallow sauce.
  5. Using a metal loaf pan, pour a layer the condensed milk, drizzle a layer of cocoa syrup, sprinkle on a layer of chopped marshmallows. Starting again with the condensed milk repeat the layers until the pan is filled.
  6. Freeze for 4-5 hours until firm.
  7. Using a small melon baller, scoop the frozen ice cream into small truffle balls and place on a parchment covered sheet pan, freeze for 30-40 minutes until firm.
  8. In a large bowl melt chocolate in the microwave.
  9. One at a time, roll frozen ice cream truffles in the chocolate and return to the sheet pan. Freeze for 15 minutes.
  10. Add the remaining ½ cup marshmallows and butter to a small bowl and microwave until melted, stir to combine into a marshmallow sauce.
  11. Dip each truffle half way into the marshmallow sauce, place back on the sheet pan, and sprinkle with cocoa powder. Freeze until ready to serve.
