S'mores Balls

Today I am longing for summer. We are in the middle of planning the patio we are going to install this spring and I'm considering adding a small firepit for the chilly evenings we have here in the mountains. The first thing I think of when summer and bonfires come up is a gooey s'more. A perfectly toasted marshmallow, warmed chocolate pieces, and crunchy graham crackers adds up to an amazing combination. Since it is still snowing, I am craving an indoor substitute... that is where this creation came from.

S'mores Balls - Makes 24-28

Ingredients for S'mores Balls. I didn't end up using the dipping chocolate since the chips melted beautifully!!

1 box Golden Grahams or similar graham cracker cereal
1 stick butter or margarine
1 bag mini marshmallows
1 bag mini chocolate chips

1. Crush about 1 cup of the cereal to fine pieces, reserve.

2. Place marshmallows in a baking pan, toast in oven on broil until desired toasty brownness is achieved.

3. Melt butter in large pot. When melted, add toasted marshmallows, stirring constantly until melted.

4. Add remaining cereal and mini chocolate chips to pot, combine well.
5. Using clean hands, roll into 1 inch balls.
6. After you've rolled all the balls, shake individually in the bag of crushed graham cereal.
