Meet the Cook: We like to do things BIG here in Texas, so don't expect a dainty little barely-a-bite truffle from the surprising recipe. Folks are delighted to discover a big fluffy marshmallow inside the chocolate and nut coating. -Pat Ball, Abilene, Texas

Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 40 large marshmallows
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped pecans (about 1 pound)

Directions

In a heavy saucepan, heat chocolate chips, milk and marshmallow creme just until melted; stir until smooth (mixture will be thick).
With tongs, immediately dip marshmallows, one at a time, in chocolate mixture; allow excess to drip off. Quickly roll in pecans. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets (Reheat chocolate mixture if necessary for easier coating.)
Refrigerate until firm. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Yield: 40 candies.

"While a bit time consuming to dip and roll in nuts, this was the fastest truffle to disappear during the holiday season! Perhaps because they seem so light and fluffy after a heavy holiday dinner...Definately a family favorite."
