Here is one more then and now comparison. Two years ago, I posted a recipe for a nutella milkshake with toasted marshmallows. The picture was this:
It was taken on my point and shoot, in a makeshift lightbox, without much thought to the camera settings. Both my camera and the milkshake have gone through some changes.
The basic recipe stayed the same, but the marshmallows are different. As “toasted marshmallow” fanatics, we decided our kitchen torch was much better for even toasting. And because we are marshmallow fanatics, I made homemade mini-marshmallows because they taste so much better than store-bought ones. And because we are nutella fanatics, we spiked the homemade mini-marshmallows with a little Frangelico for an extra hit of hazelnut.
- Place ice-cream, milk, and nutella in a blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Pour into a tall glass.
- Spread mini-marshmallows onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Toast under a hot broiler until lightly brown. Top shake with marshmallows. If you have a kitchen torch, you can skip the broiler, and toast the marshmallows after topping the shake.
