Valentine's Day: Truly Decadent Truffles


Truly Decadent Truffles

Make ‘Em With Marshmallows!

These are super-simple, but so fun to do. Even preschoolers can get into the act. What could be more festive and tasty for Valentine's Day than Truly Decadent Truffles?

Ingredients:

1 bag of large marshmallows
1 bag (12 oz.) of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon margarine

Toppings:

Flaky coconut
Multi-colored sprinkles
Chopped pecans
Crushed breakfast cereals (Cheerios, Golden Grahams and Grape Nuts work well.)

Instructions:

Cover a cookie sheet or baking tray with waxed paper.

Place marshmallows on baking sheet, and set it in the freezer for 10 minutes. (This will prevent the marshmallows from melting when you dip them into hot melted chocolate.)

In glass bowl, microwave chocolate chips and margarine for one minute. Stir, then microwave for one more minute. (Microwave powers may vary, so you may have to experiment with cooking times a bit.)

Using a skewer or fondue fork, dip marshmallows (one at a time) into melted chocolate until they are completely coated.

Roll chocolate-covered marshmallows in toppings.

Place truffles on waxed-papered cookie sheet, and cool well before serving. Store in covered container at room temperature.


Fun idea:

Did you know you can find heart-shaped marshmallows at Candy Warehouse, Sweet Stall and Williams-Sonoma?
