S’mores Truffles

smore's truffles on overtimecook

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!

S’mores Truffles

Ingredients:

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

Instructions:

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.

    I made them yesterday. They are delicious, but next time I think I will leave the graham cracker crumbs a little bigger so I could taste it more. It gets a little lost in the marshmallow when it is crushed too much.
