I know what you’re thinking right now – shut up and give me the recipe, Matt. HA! No, I’m going to make you read about it! I want to make sure this puts to rest those nasty rumors that I only shoot healthy food.
So yes, I made s’mores truffles. To say these tasted good would be to say the sun “may be a bit warm today.” Family reaction was exactly the same – make…MORE.
I actually found the first recipe I wanted to use on one particular site but the author was so INCREDIBLY snooty that I went out and found another one to use just to hopefully support someone ELSE with my link! That search actually led me to a blog I really love: Visions of Sugar Plum. The truffle recipe is actually here. I made no changes except to double the mini-marsmallows (therefore 48 of them) instead of 24 mini-marshmallows. I’m not posting the recipe under Read More since it’s virtually exact.
I will, however, give you some photos to drool over before you leave to go make these.
Photographically these were actually REALLY easy to shoot. I used a setup like my bacon & sundried tomato pasta (http://startingtocook.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/foodshoot3260059.jpg) The plate I used reflected almost nothing so I didn’t have to worry much about that – I removed a few specks from the plate in post processing due to dropping them off the s’mores balls. The graham cracker crust didn’t stick quite enough to move them around a lot and not have crumbs.
So far the first image is online at my stock sites. I wouldn’t say it’s making money hand over fist but I’ll probably have both batches of ingredients paid off by the end of the day today or tomorrow and then every image that ever sells from this shoot moving forward is profit from it. I anticipate editing about 15-20 s’mores truffles photos, uploading them and making $50-150 over the life of this project. Plus I got to eat (with my family) chocolate s’mores truffles. YUM!
