So tonight’s post was going to be onion rings. Those of you who follow me on Facebook know that I was seriously craving them this afternoon. Admittedly, I frequently crave onion rings. French fries are good, but onion rings? Totally blissful.
But then I made a very mature decision. Instead of making onion rings, I went to the gym. I know, I know, I hardly recognize myself. Exercise over onion rings. I feel so virtuous about this I practically desserve ice cream.
Moving along though. Obviously I don’t have onion rings to share with you tonight. Don’t worry, I didn’t give up on them. I will be making onion rings eventually. But for now, I decided to share a fabulous little treat I cooked up for my magazine column.
These s’mores truffles are no-bake, thus perfect for summer. They’re also really delicious, so that’s a big bonus. And then there’s the whole “super easy” thing – can’t complain about that. Plus, uh, s’mores. ‘Nuff said.
These truffles have a really cool texture. They are a little bit crumbly, kinda sweet, little chunks of chocolate…it’s pretty unexpected but so awesome!
¾ cup marshmallow fluff
5 Tablespoons (1/2 stick plus 1 Tablespoon) margarine or butter
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
¼ cup extra-mini chocolate chips
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate
optional: extra graham cracker crumbs, for decorating
Combine the marshmallow fluff, margarine and graham cracker crumbs in a small bowl. Mix to combine. Add the chocolate chips and mix until distributed. (I did everything up to this point with my hands.)
Form the “dough” into small balls, about 2 teaspoons worth in each. (This is easiest when done with a small cookie scoop.) Refrigerate the balls until hardened, so they will be easier to dip.
Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of boiling water. Stir until smooth. Dip the balls into the chocolate to coat. Set on a piece of parchment paper to set. If desired, top with some extra graham cracker crumbs before the chocolate sets.
Thanks all for stopping by! Hope you all come back soon. Possibly for onion rings. Possibly for some other delicious treat – but I guarantee it’ll be yummy! -Miriam
