S'mores Ice Cream

Unfortunately, this is another dish I didn't get a photo of before it was devoured. Oh well--I was busy having fun and didn't really care to take a picture of food instead!!
This recipe is from Tasty Kitchen (from the Pioneer Woman's site) and you can see a picture there if you'd like! I read the review and adjusted my recipe accordingly, so I will list my adjusted recipe below.
This ice cream had a texture that everyone was describing as similar to Cool Whip, which I guess is because it was marshmallow flavored and had lots of marshmallows in it! I thought it was best with a drizzle of chocolate sauce because it was missing the chocolate flavor that is so important in good s'mores. I think it would be great with a fudge ribbon throughout it if I make it again!
Go ahead, have s'more!! But how can I have s'more if I haven't had any yet?? (reminiscing on the great childhood movie, the Sandlot!!)

S'mores Ice Cream
10.5 oz marshmallows (if you use large, chop them up to melt faster)
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup milk (you can use 2% instead of whole milk)
2 tsp vanilla
4.4 oz Hershey's chocolate bar, cut into chunks
4 full graham cracker sheets, broken into chunks
Combine marshmallows, cream, and milk over medium heat and stir constantly until marshmallows have melted into the cream and the mixture has become thick.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Allow to cool for about 30 minutes, then pour into ice cream maker. Churn for ~35 minutes. Carefully fold in the chocolate chunks, then the graham crackers. Eat immediately or place in freezer for harder consistency.
