Marshmellow Ice CreamSubmitted by: RUBYAM
1 pkg large marshmallows ( 10 ounces/283 G) shopping list
2 cups half and half cream shopping list
2 Tbsp pure vanilla extract shopping list

# When melted , remove pot from heat, cool briefly at room temperature and place pot in refrigerator to cool and thicken mixture ( perhaps 20 to 30 minutes or so - you don't want it over chilled just cold ).
# When marshmallow mixture is cool, stir it again, then whip the cream to almost soft peaks ( please, not stiff !) .
# Fold whipped cream into cooled marshmallow mixture and blend well with mixer on low speed or hand whisk.
# Immediately place mixture in your electric ice cream maker following manufacturers instructions for making ice cream..

# cream maker, one may add some well drained chopped maraschino cherries or I suppose whatever you like ( finely chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips etc )
