In the Kitchen: No-Bake S’mores Balls

(WTNH)– Food Writer/Columnist Jenn Press Arata shows us how to bake No-Bake S’mores Balls.

Jenn is known for having a huge sweet tooth, but during the beginning of her pregnancy she didn’t want any dessert. S’mores was one of the first sweets she craved, so she found a way to make them without a campfire.

That’s SO Jenn, Confessions of a Foodie is a popular food website offering original recipes with step-by-step photos, party planning tips, restaurant reviews, chef interviews, coverage of food related events and personal stories relating food to life. That’s SO Jenn also runs as a monthly column for Hearst Corporation’s Darien and New Canaan News online and in print.

S’mores Balls Recipe:

1 (16 oz.) package mini marshmallows
3 tablespoons butter or butter substitute
1 1/2 cups mini Hershey’s Kisses
2 packages honey or cinnamon sugar graham crackers

Empty marshmallows into a heat-safe bowl. Add butter and melt in microwave for two minutes. Stir well and microwave for another minute. Place one package graham crackers into an airtight bag. Crush into crumbs using a kitchen mallet (A food processor works well too — just not in a bag!) Pour crumbs into melted marshmallow. Stir together. Add chocolate. Mix well to incorporate. Open second package of graham cracker crumbs and crush a few sheets into crumbs. Place in a small bowl. Using your ice cream scoop, form the mixture into a ball. Roll into crumbs, coating evenly. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and refrigerate or freeze until hardened. Eat and enjoy fulfilling your craving!
