I can’t think of an occasion not to make Valentine s’mores brownie bite truffles using a boxed brownie mix. They make an easy Valentine treat. If you tend to get the same weather wherever you’re reading from that we get in Canada this time of year, this indoor-friendly take on s’mores could be perfect for you too! With simple ingredients like boxed brownies, chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker crumbs you can make these tasty s’more truffles.
As you might expect, s’more truffles team chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers, just like the kind of s’mores you’d make around the campfire.
Camping weather it’s not (at least not here!) so try these s’more flavoured brownie balls instead. They feature brownies, chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker crumbs and there’s nothing hard about the recipe at all.
Great for kids as well as the grownups, Valentine s’mores brownie bite truffles are both indulgent and delicious. This is a very simple recipe calling for only 4 ingredients, or 6 if you use the optional oil and sprinkles as well.
S’more Truffles Ingredients
Ready to make this super easy Valentine treat with brownies, chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker crumbs? They are made using a boxed brownie mix and you can use any brand you prefer.
In addition you can choose from mini marshmallows or marshmallow fluff, plus you need graham cracker crumbs. Marshmallow fluff yields a softer result but can be trickier to work with. It’s easier to roll the brownie mixture around mini marshmallows but the texture isn’t as soft. So either try both or pick whichever sounds best to you.
Mini chocolate chips are also an ingredient in these s’more flavoured brownie balls and again you can use any brand or kind. Even swap them for dark chocolate or another kind if you want. White chocolate would add a unique flavour to this easy Valentine treat as well.
How to Make Valentine S’mores Brownie Bite Truffles
You will need to begin this easy Valentine treat with prepared brownies so make those first. Follow the directions on the box to see which ingredients you need to add and what equipment you need to make the brownies.
When using a boxed brownie mix I prefer to use an 8-inch square pan since that gives you plenty of the soft inside as well as the crisp outside brownies are known for.
After baking your brownies and giving them time to cool down, you can make the s’more truffles. Break off pieces of brownies and roll them in your hands, pressing them and squishing them (think: Playdoh!) to make little disks.
If the mixture won’t stick together properly you can run all but the very outside edges in a food processor for a minute to make a finer crumb. Then try again.
The crusty outside of the brownies isn’t so good for this so just use the inner pieces and save the crispy bits to sprinkle over homemade no-churn ice cream or for another dessert recipe.
Either put a mini marshmallow or a small bit of marshmallow fluff on each brownie disk. Next you will wrap the brownie around the marshmallow to enclose it. Roll the whole thing in your hands to make sure the marshmallow is sealed inside.
The Last Steps
Freeze the Valentine s’mores brownie bite truffles for half an hour and melt the chocolate. You might or might not need to add a little oil to the chocolate in case it’s too thick when melted. This is going to depend on the type of chocolate you use and the brand, so see how it melts and just add the oil if needed.
Dip the s’more flavoured brownie balls into the melted chocolate and then roll in graham cracker crumbs. To give these Valentine s’mores brownie bite truffles more cuteness, add sprinkles to the graham cracker crumbs first.
Chill them on a parchment paper-lined sheet for at least half an hour then serve!
As well as swapping the semisweet chocolate for another kind, there are some other variations to try. Coconut oil can be used in place of another oil to add a delicate coconut flavour to the Valentine s’mores brownie bite truffles.
Another idea is using crunchy coloured sprinkles instead of plain ones. Try pink or red, or both! On Valentine’s Day anything goes – even cute little heart shaped ones.
How to Store S’more Flavoured Brownie Balls
This unique recipe with brownies, chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker crumbs tastes so good you might eat it all! If not, don’t worry because you can store them for a while.
Either refrigerate the s’more truffles in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks or freeze them for up to 4 weeks. These truffles, using a boxed brownies mix, are quick and easy to make yourself and your Valentine is going to love them!
Easy Valentine S’mores Brownie Bite Truffles Recipe
Easy Valentine S’mores Brownie Bite Truffles
- 1 Box brownie mix plus the ingredients it calls for
- 1 Cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1 1/4 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips mini
- 1/2 Cup marshmallow fluff or 20 mini marshmallows
- 1 Teaspoon oil optional
- sprinkles optional
- Make the brownies as directed on the back of the box mix, using an 8×8 pan. You could use a larger pan but I recommend using an 8×8 as you will get more of the soft interior that you need.
- When the brownies have baked and cooled, take a scoop from the inside of the brownies, avoiding the crunchy outer edges. Place the scoop of brownie and the palm of your hand and squish it several times just like Play-Doh to get it nice and soft and combined
- While the brownie Is still in the palm of your hand, use your thumb to flatten it out into a shallow little bowl. Take a very small scoop of the marshmallow fluff or one mini marshmallow and place it into the centre of the brownie bowl. Wrap the edges of the brownie up over the marshmallow fluff and very gently roll the ball between your palms to ensure it's all closed together.
- Continue this process with the rest of the brownies then place all of the balls onto a plate and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
- Place the graham cracker crumbs and as many sprinkles as you like into a shallow dish, set aside.
- After about 30 minutes place the mini semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish and microwave in 20 second intervals until melted. If the chocolate feels a little thick you could add about 1 tsp of oil to the chocolate to help with the dipping process.
- Take the brownie balls out of the freezer using a fork or a toothpick, dip each ball into the chocolate, let it drip any excess chocolate off for just a moment then roll in the graham cracker mixture. Set the finished truffle onto a plate lined with parchment and paper.
- Once all the truffles are completed place the truffles in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, or until the chocolate shell has hardened.
- I used this boxed brownie mix and these Valentine sprinkles.
- For this recipe you can use either marshmallow fluff or mini marshmallows. I prefer the texture and taste of the marshmallow fluff, however it is a little bit trickier and messier than just using a mini marshmallow.
- If your brownie mixture isn’t sticking together very well, you can cut the very edge pieces off of the brownies then place the remaining brownies in a mixer using a paddle attachment and run the mixer for a couple minutes, this should help get the brownies to the correct consistency.
