Sometime last fall I got a message from Chelsea – subject line reading, “Guess What’s Coming Back??”.
And there it was: the news that M&M’s® Crispy – our very favorite M & M’s – were coming back!
I was never a fan of straight-up chocolate, always preferring a little “something” mixed in – preferably something crunchy. So I was bummed big time when these guys were discontinued.
And clearly I was not the only one, as M & M’s brought these candies back due to customer demand – power to the people!
When I had the opportunity to create a recipe featuring M&M’s® Crispy I all but ran to CVS to stock up on a few large bags to bake with.
And while I was there I couldn’t resist grabbing “a few” individual size packages to nibble on right away – I’m not kidding when I say that I love these candies.
I decided to make a batch of white chocolate truffles – each stuffed with M & M’s Crispy and rolled in nonpareils. I went with white chocolate to offset the rainbow colors of the candy – and because I adore white chocolate. And I loved the idea of a colorful crispy “surprise” hidden inside the smooth and creamy truffles.
I also wanted to create a treat that was quick and easy, yet looked elegant and festive – spring is almost here and after this long, drab winter there is much to celebrate! All the colors!
And truffles are just that. With only two ingredients – chocolate and heavy cream – you are on your way to making simple and mouthwatering ganache truffles. And to get you started, click here for a coupon for M&M’s® Crispy at CVS!
Do you have a “grab and go” candy that calls your name at the check-out line?
8-9 ounces good quality white chocolate, chopped
1/4 c. heavy cream
1/4 c. (approximate) M&M’s® Crispy
Optional: rainbow nonpareils
Place chopped chocolate and cream in a bowl set over barely simmering water. Stir occasionally till melted. Cool to room temperature, cover and place in fridge till mixture is firm enough to scoop but still malleable.
Using a small ice cream or melon scoop, scoop out chilled ganache (about 1/2 tablespoon each). Place 1-3 M & M’s in the center and fold the ganache around to enclose. Form into balls and roll in nonpareils, if using. Chill till ready to serve.
