Transform a campfire staple into a frozen treat.

Makes: 6 servings

Prep: 30 mins

Cook: 18 mins

Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 3/4 cup Marshmallow Fluff
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 24 ounces milk chocolate chips
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees . In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the all-purpose and whole wheat flours with the sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the butter and combine on low speed until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs, about 3 minutes. Add the molasses and 1/4 cup of water and mix until the dough forms a ball, about 2 minutes. Divide the dough into 2 equal pieces, pat each piece into a flat 4-inch square and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes.
  2. Roll out each piece of chilled dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper into two 8-inch squares about 1/8 inch thick. Transfer each square, on the parchment, to a baking sheet; stack and freeze until firm, about 15 minutes.
  3. Remove the top sheets of parchment and, using a pastry wheel or sharp knife, cut the dough into 2-inch squares (you'll get 16 cookies from each square of dough). Prick the dough all over with a fork and bake until golden around the edges, 15 to 18 minutes. Let the cookies cool completely on a rack, then break them apart into squares. Freeze 12 squares in a resealable bag until firm, about 15 minutes; reserve the remaining cookies for another use.
  4. Place the chilled graham squares on a work surface and turn them bottom side up. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the Fluff in the center of 6 squares, and about 2 tablespoons of the ice cream on the remaining 6 squares, then gently sandwich the squares together. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
  5. In a microwavable bowl, melt the chocolate chips in a microwave at 50 percent power for 3 minutes. Stir until smooth; let rest until cool to the touch. Dip the ice cream sandwiches in the melted chocolate, turning with tongs to coat. Place each bonbon on a parchment paperlined baking sheet and freeze until firm, at least 1 hour.
Tip Extra! Extra!
  • You'll have plenty of graham squares left over. Use them to make more bonbons, or store them in an airtight container for lunchbox treats.
