If there are marshmallows in the house, they won’t last more than a few days. I’m not even that crazy about them, but I still manage to shovel handfuls into my mouth, almost ritualistically, every time I pass by the kitchen. Toasting marshmallows (for S’mores) is one of my favorite summer activities, but it somehow loses its appeal in the dark months of winter.
I tried Stand’s famous Toasted Marshmallow Shake when I was in New York for Fashion Week (you can find posts on my trip here, here and here) and my boyfriend and I haven’t stopped talking about it since. It was amazingly decadent, with rich vanilla ice cream and golden marshmallows that were blended into the tastiest thing I’ve ever drunk. I finally found the recipe last week (here) and have been waiting for the perfect time to try it out. Turns out, it was yesterday at 3:30 on a random Monday afternoon and boy, was it sweet.
