S’mores Truffles

As promised Monday, something to do with graham crackers! Bonus: It’s something chocolatey!

IMG_5386Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces milk chocolate, chips or finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 6-7 graham crackers, roughly crushed

Put the chocolate in a glass or metal bowl and set aside.

Combine the cream and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a high simmer. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate, let rest briefly while the chocolate melts, then stir together until smooth. Stir in the vanilla, as well.

IMG_5372Put the chocolate mixture in the refrigerator and chill, stirring every twenty minutes, until it is thickened enough that you can add the marshmallows without them all sinking to the bottom. When the chocolate can hold its shape after being stirred, it should be firm enough.

IMG_5377Add the marshmallows and stir in well. Cover, and refrigerate overnight.

IMG_5378The following day, scoop out cherry-sized portions of the chocolate mixture.

IMG_5380Roll into balls in your hands, then roll in the crushed graham crackers.

IMG_5381Chill half an hour, and enjoy.

IMG_5382These stayed a bit softer than I expected, but I love the flavors. I think I got about 16 of them out of this.

IMG_5387A good way to go, when you don’t have a campfire!
