Recipe: S'more Truffles on a Stick

Earlier this month we served up the cupcakes at my daughter's Toy Story themed birthday party in little dump trucks filled with crushed graham cracker "sand".  I overestimated the amount of crushed grahams that I'd need, and as a result, ended the day with a huge bag of the stuff.  So, I decided to take the "Oreo Truffle" concept to the next level and created the "S'more Truffle" on a stick!  

Here's how:

S'more Truffles on a Stick
(makes approx 30)

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 TB butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
30 mini marshmallows

30 lollipop sticks or bamboo skewers
10 oz. melted chocolate (candy coating or bark)
1/4 cup crushed graham cracker crumbs

Step 1:  In the bowl of a standing mixer (food processor or bowl with hand-mixer will work too), mix cream cheese, butter, and sugar until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes on  medium speed).

Step 2:  On low speed, add graham cracker crumbs, 1 cup at a time, till thoroughly combined.  

Step 3:  On a parchment or wax paper lined baking sheet, scoop batter into Tablespoon sized balls.  Place a mini marshmallow in the center of a batter ball, pinch to enclose, then roll batter between your palms to form a smooth ball.  Repeat with remaining batter balls.  Put pan in freezer for 15 minutes.

Step 4:  In a small, deep bowl, melt chocolate over low heat on the stove top or in microwave until smooth and no lumps remain.  

Step 5:  Remove s'more balls from freezer and insert a lollipop stick in to each one.  One at a time, holding stick end, dip s'more ball in to melted chocolate.  Gently tap off excess.  Dip bottom of ball in to bowl containing the 1/4 cup crushed graham cracker crumbs, then place back on the lined baking sheet to set.  Repeat with remaining s'more balls.
