It’s been a while hasn’t it? It’s been a strange week, that’s for sure! First, I caught the flu that everyone has been talking about and just so you know, they are not exaggerating. Then something happened to a member of my husband’s family that had me pretty busy for a while – but finally, I am well and things have settled down so today it was back to cooking.

My Co-worker’s birthday was a week ago and since I’ve been practicing cooking now for a while, I wanted to make her something special. I really only know what she doesn’t like – cold sandwiches and soup – I am not really well versed in what she does like. I know she loves three things: Her family, her dog named George, and George Strait. George is a cattle dog and is named after George Strait – George has a cattle dog. Every year on or around her birthday Mr. Strait comes to Oklahoma and she, a fan club member, gets some of the first tickets available. I usually get her some George related gift but I can’t just cook him up! So I decided to cook something for her, her family, and her dog – I will be showing you all three recipes this week because I think they are pretty cool!

First up is the gift for her family: Smores Truffles. Yep, don’t they sounds delicious? THEY ARE! I would do a few things differently next time but all in all I love them. I found a nice recipe on Pinterest for Smores Truffles, which is what gave me the idea, but there was just an “after” picture. No tutorial anywhere and after making them – I know why! I want you to know right now – it is messy and there’s no doubt about it. A week or so ago, Top Girl gave me this box from Sam’s that included ingredients to make 36 Smores. During the time between when I brought the box home and today, Mr. Picky Eater ate a bunch of the candy bars. I had just enough to make 16 truffles the size that they ended up being. If I had known what I was doing, I could have doubled that number. So – this is what you will need:

16 oz. of Chocolate Candy (I used Hershey’s candy bars)
Miniature marshmallows
1 Package of graham cracker squares – processed in the food processor
1/3 cup of evaporated milk
Melting chocolate: Almond Bark, Dolci Frutta, or some other melting chocolate.

Using a double boiler, bring the evaporated milk to a simmer then add chopped chocolate stirring until it is smooth and shiny.

Chocolate should be chopped like this:

Put in a bowl and then place in the fridge until completely cool but not hard – that would be about an hour. Then take it out and using a tablespoon spoon out some chocolate.
***Don’t use large marshmallows like I did – use miniature ones because even if you cut up the big ones, they are just too big***

Take a marshmallow and press it into the chocolate then dip out some more and press it on top and do your best to roll it into a ball or make it look as close as you can to a ball like this.

Then, place in the freezer for 1 hour.

Process enough graham crackers to equal ½ cup.
