S'mores Truffles

Pin It Now!

I know, I know.  I am a day late and a dollar short for having these up for National S'mores Day.  Well, with two kids 3 and under, this is the best I can do.

Now that that is out of the way....these are absolutely sinful!!!!  I think this is the only way I ever want to eat something labeled "s'mores" ever again.  Five ingredients, couldn't be more simple, and they taste sooooooo good.  I am going to cut right to the chase.  Here is the recipe, and if I ever go camping, people can expect to see these with me instead of the graham crackers, marshmallows on a stick, and Hershey's chocolate bars.

S'mores Truffles

Makes approx. 36 truffles

Ingredients:
  • 2 sleeves graham crackers (18 sheets)
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese (or the lower fat neufchatel cheese)
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows, divided, plus approximately 36 for the tops
  • 2 Tbs. butter 
  • 10 -12 oz semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips (depending on how thick of a chocolate shell you do)
Directions:
  1. In a food processor place the graham crackers and 1 cup of the mini marshmallows.  Pulse until the graham crackers are finely ground, the marshmallows will still be in big pieces or whole, but don't worry.
  2. In a large microwave safe bowl place the remaining 2 cups of marshmallows, butter, and cream cheese.  Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after each, until everything is melted and incorprated.
  3. Pour the marshmallow mixture into the food processor.  Process until everything is combined and forms a dough/paste.
  4. Using a 2 tsp. cookie dough scooper, scoop out the truffle centers onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, don't worry about making them round or anything.
  5. Place in refrigerator for 1-2 hours, or until firm enough to handle.
  6. Remove from fridge and roll each mound into a smooth ball.
  7. Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second increments, stirring after each one, until they are melted.
  8. Using a fork, carefully roll each truffle center in the chocolate, using the fork to coat, and then shaking off the extra chocolate carefully.  Place back on tray.  Repeat for remaining centers.
  9. Top each one with a mini marshmallow and place back in fridge until set.  
  10. Once set, enjoy! 
  11. Keep refrigerated.
