S'mores Truffles

S'mores - what's not to love? A gooey, caught-on-fire marshmallow sandwiched between chocolate & graham just tastes like summer. I came across this recipe for S'mores Truffles some time ago & decided to save it for the 4th of July weekend. I love doing something new & surprising with a regular dessert & these truffles don't disappoint. They are just amazing. A mini marshmallow tucked inside chocolate ganache and rolled in graham cracker crumbs. It's as easy as it is delicious. I made a test batch yesterday afternoon while Landon was napping & I'll make another batch for our family cookout on Saturday, maybe adding a little Kaluha to the ganache.

And coming on Wednesday - easy Red, White & Blue Rice Krispie Treats. Another festive recipe that doesn't require heating up the kitchen.

Recipe courtesy Sugar Plum
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 cups milk chocolate chips (12 oz.)
24 mini-marshmallows
1 cup finely crushed graham crackers

Melt butter in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat; whisk in cream and bring to a boil. Remove pan from heat and stir in chocolate chips until melted and smooth. Chill saucepan in refrigerator for 1 hour, or until chocolate is solid and rollable; roll into 24 balls, stuffing a mini marshmallow into the center of each. Chill truffles a few minutes before rolling in graham cracker crumbs; chill for a few minutes again so they solidify a little more.

Makes 24 truffles
