S'more Cookie Dough Truffles are an easy no-bake dessert candy. These have cookie dough studded with chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. Then rolled in crushed graham crackers and a dip into melted chocolate. Each one has sprinkles of mini marshmallows and crushed graham crackers so they taste like campfire s'mores.
This is a kid-friendly dessert recipe, and they will love to make these s'more candy treats. You can easily keep them in the refrigerator for up to two weeks (if they last that long) for parties and special occasions.
Sure to be a hit with both kids and adults, especially with cookie dough desserts being so popular...
I created this recipe and originally and shared it on CocoandAsh.com so you might see it there as well.
How To Make S'more Cookie Dough Truffles
Make Cookie Dough Balls
Step 1: Make the cookie dough: In a medium bowl, mix butter, brown sugar, vanilla, salt, flour, milk, 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, and ½ cup mini marshmallows.
Step 2: Place 4 graham crackers in a zip-lock bag. Roll a rolling pin over it to crush the graham crackers. Place in a small bowl.
Step 3: Use a 1” scoop or small teaspoon, and roll into 1” balls. Then roll all 36 cookie dough balls in crushed graham crackers, and place them on a parchment-lined tray.
Step 4: Freeze for at least an hour.
Decorate The Truffles
Step 5: Once truffles have chilled an hour or more, place a heatproof (metal) bowl, over a small pan filled with water. Melt 3 cups of semi-chocolate chips and 3 teaspoons vegetable oil in a double boiler. Stir until melted. Using 2 forks dip each truffle, you will need to roll it around until the chocolate coats each truffle.
Step 6: Place on a parchment-lined tray. Then immediately sprinkle with mini marshmallows, and sprinkle crushed graham crackers right away before the chocolate is firms. Go one by one so the toppings stick.
Step 7: Keep in the fridge on a small plate (covered with a zip-lock bag) until ready to enjoy! They will last a week refrigerated, and I have kept them in the freezer for up to 3 weeks. Keep them in an airtight container or on a paper plate sealed in a zip-top bag.
What Are Chocolate Truffles?
A candy chocolate truffle is a type of chocolate confectionery dessert. Traditionally made with a chocolate ganache center, coated in chocolate, cocoa powder or chopped toasted nuts. Typically they are in a round spherical, conical, or curved shape.
Truffles originate from France around 1895, and their name derives from their resemblance to truffles, an edible fungi or mushroom of the genus Tuber that is a dark and has a rough surface like a truffle from the earth.
A s'more is a popular nighttime campfire dessert in the United States and Canada, consisting of roasting marshmallows on a stick or metal skewer over a fire until toasty brown and gooey, then a layer of chocolate bar (usually Hershey's Chocolate Bars) sandwiched between two pieces of graham crackers and all squished together.
In the US most of us are very in love with this as a summer or fall dessert, but my friends in the UK had not heard of these years ago when they visited, now they love to make them at home.
There is quite a bit of debate about who invented the s'more, and no one knows for sure. However, one of the first published recipes for “some mores" was in a 1927 publication called Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. Loretta Scott Crew, who made them for Girl Scouts by the campfire, is often given credit for the original s'more recipe.
S'more is simply an abbreviation of the phrase "some more".
An early published recipe for a s'more is found in a book of recipes published by the Campfire Smores company in the 1920's where it was called a "Graham Cracker Sandwich". The text indicates that the treat was already popular with both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.
The term "s'mores" appears in conjunction with the recipe in a 1938 publication aimed at summer camps. A 1956 recipe uses the name "S'Mores", and lists the ingredients as "a sandwich of two graham crackers, toasted marshmallow, and 1⁄2 chocolate bar". A 1957 Betty Crocker cookbook contains a similar recipe under the name of "s'mores".
The 1958 publication Intramural and Recreational Sports for High School and College makes the reference to "marshmallow toasts" and "s'mores hikes" as does its related predecessor, the "Intramural and Recreational Sports for Men and Women" published in 1949.
