Smores Truffles

I am always trying to make fun and easy desserts. This idea has been in my head ever since I made the Thin Mint Truffles back in March. The basic "recipe" is the same, but you could swap out ingredients in this a million different ways and have a completely different flavor profile each time. My mind has been racing just thinking of all the amazing variations of this I can make (yes, I am aware that I am a total nerd)!

Smores Truffles

  • 1 cup graham crackers crumbs + extra a little extra for decorating
  • 4oz cream cheese softened
  • mini marshmallows (about 12 depending on how many truffles you make)
  • 1/2 bag Wilton Candy Melts (about 7oz)
If you are using graham crackers, run them through the food processor or crush them with a rolling pin.

Combine the graham cracker crumbs with the cream cheese. The best way to do this is to use your hands. Keep working in the graham cracker crumbs until it is all thoroughly combined. It takes a few minutes to get it all worked in there.

Take a small melon baller and scoop a little of the filling into your hand. Place the mini marshmallow in the center and then scoop a little more filling on top. Gently roll it in your hands to shape it into a ball. Continue until all of the truffles are made. Mine made 12 truffles that were each slightly over 1" each. Refrigerate them for a minimum of 2 hours to get them nice a firm before you dip them in the chocolate.

Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave. If you choose to microwave your chocolate, always start out at 1 minute and then stir. Return it to the microwave in 10-15 second intervals from there, stirring each time.

Dip the truffles in the chocolate and then place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs before it has a chance to dry.

These came out sooooo good!!! You should really give them a try!
