Rocky Road Truffles

Here we are on Day 2 of Christmas in April. I found this recipe for Rocky Road Truffles in the newspaper and thought it would make a good addition to our Christmas Brunch we held. When Scott and I go to the movies, we mix Reese's Pieces in with our popcorn. This is a fancier version of that combo - salty buttery popcorn, peanuts and of course, chocolate. These went over very well at the Brunch, but especially well with one of our guests who not only asked for the recipe, but also took most of the leftover ones home!

Rocky Road Truffles
From the Calgary Herald
1 cup popped popcorn
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup salted peanuts
1 lb chocolate chips

Spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray. Mix together the popcorn marshmallows and peanuts. Divide the mix between the cups. Melt the chocolate and pour carefully over the tops of the cups. Tap the tin against the counter to settle the chocolate and eliminate air bubbles. Cool until chocolate is set.

Come and join me as I celebrate Christmas in April! If you have any leftover Christmas pictures or posts, put them up!
