When it comes to me and s'mores, there is no love missing. I am going to tell you something embarrassing. I think we all have an embarrassing snack or treat that we consume — a dessert that is sort of humiliating because of what it contains or what it takes to get there.
At one point in my life, I may have considered a spoonful of peanut butter dipped in a bag of chocolate chips semi-embarrassing, then I was like WHAT! Everyone does that. I'm so not alone. But this--this snack I'm about to tell you about? Horrifying. I went through a period when I was so sincerely obsessed with s'mores that I would combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter in a bowl. On top of that, I'd place some mini marshmallows or marshmallow Fluff-whatever I had on hand. Then on top of THAT would go some chocolate. Chocolate chips, chocolate bars, chocolate whatever. Then I'd eat it with a spoon. Talk about desperation. Called it my white trash s'mores bowl.
I don't know what it is about s'mores, but I have been fanatical since childhood. I just love them so freaking much. I love every- and anything s'mores. I love all the recently trashed-up recipes with s'mores flavors. I live for them. This is one. Helllllo, trashy shakes!

- 2 cups whole milk
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1/3 cup hot fudge
- 1/3 cup marshmallow crème
- 1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs, plus extra for garnish
- Whipped cream, for serving
- 2 jumbo marshmallows
Add the milk, ice cream, hot fudge, marshmallow crème, and graham crumbs to a blender and puree until smooth. Pour the shake into two glasses and top with whipped cream. If desired, quickly toast the jumbo marshmallows under the broiler, over a burner on your gas stove, or with a kitchen torch.
Place the marshmallows on top of the whipped cream and sprinkle the shakes with extra graham crumbs.
