When they mentioned we were having a Halloween potluck at work, I decided to try something new, marshmallow truffles. The concept is fairly simple: dip marshmallows in chocolate and then into any number of toppings.
I used small wooden skewers to make dipping and serving a bit easier. I also found some Halloween-themed sprinkles at Target, that I thought made my truffles look pretty festive. You could also use chopped nuts, crumbled cookies, graham cracker crumbs, coconut, whatever you want!
Each tub of dipping chocolate covered about a dozen marshmallows. I think if I were to do it again, I would just buy a big bag of chocolate morsels or bar chocolate. I thought I was going to get more mileage out of the tubs (this was my first time using them).
I ended up not using the orange sugar on the left…It just kind of melted into the dark chocolate and looked terrible. You definitely want toppings that are not too small and not too big. The other three types of sprinkles worked great.
This is exactly the type of recipe (if you even really want to call it a recipe) that I love. Few ingredients, simple, and lots of ways to customize it. My only issue is that it was quite messy and I felt like I got chocolate everywhere. But that’s pretty much always going to be the case when you deal with melted chocolate.
What treats are you whipping up for Halloween?
