Day 6. Recipe 6.

Chances are we have all done it. Scrolling through social media or paging through a fancy new cookbook, we see a recipe that looks great and seems easy to make. Once, however, we are hands deep in chocolate and marshmallows, it becomes apparent that we have been tricked and duped into creating something out of our wheelhouse or pantry stock.

This might be the case for S'mores Truffles. 

The video from Tasty captivated me.

The oozing melted chocolate and marshmallow fluff mesmerized me.

The music made me want to dance right into my kitchen and whip up a batch of sweet little truffles.

My heart, however, will go on if I never make this recipe again. 

It was a sticky, goopy and hot mess.

But of course, my kids never peeped "Oh, Barf." They just quietly licked the marshmallow goodness right from their hands.


Salted S'mores Heart Truffles

(adapted from Tasty Salted S'mores Truffles Recipe)

  • 1 pack graham crackers (or 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs)
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Step 1: Crush graham crackers into a fine crumb and pour into a medium mixing bowl (break up any large pieces). Add the mini chocolate chips and 1/4 tsp salt and mix well. 

Step 2: In a large microwavable bowl, melt the mini marshmallows and corn syrup for 1 min on high. Stir together. Combine the graham cracker mixture into the marshmallow mixture.

Step 3: Roll the combination into 1-inch balls and place on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Freeze for 15 minutes.

Step 4: Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl and add the coconut oil. Microwave chocolate for 75 seconds, stopping every 30 seconds to check and stir.

Step 5: Remove balls from the freezer and individually roll in melted chocolate to coat. Place back on a wax paper lined tray and sprinkle with coarse salt. Add the optional candy heart and cool until firm.

Maybe we could agree, creating a truffle and mess never tasted so good?

Until tomorrow friends.
