S’Mores Truffle Pops

Smores Pop (1)

Typically our marshmallow-themed recipes provide uses for our Sweet Jumbles marshmallows in cooking or baking recipes. This month, we don’t exactly do that. This recipe teaches you to actually making some marshmallow creme on your own. Since the marshmallow theme still stands strong, we hope you’ll like this slight change. This recipe for S’Mores Truffle Pops, while not difficult, does involve several steps, a bit of hurry up and wait, and one important tool: the kitchen torch. If you don’t have a kitchen torch, you could carefully try this over an open flame. But use caution – it could end badly. Continue reading

S’mores Popcorn Balls

smores popcorn ball by Sweet Jumbles (3)I wanted to do some baking this Memorial Day weekend, so after returning home from a Saturday on the beach, I got to work.  But, I was tired.  The beach does that.  And it was hot (I have no A/C) so the oven was off-limits. Fortunately, I had a plan that required minimal stovetop effort and was super easy.  S’mores Popcorn Balls.  Not only are these easy, but compared to many sweet treats they are lower in calories!

S’mores Crème Brûlée

Smores Creme Brulee by Sweet Jumbles (4)I was enjoying dinner at a local Italian restaurant and got Crème Brûlée for dessert.  It was, as expected, delicious.  Crème Brûlée is surprisingly not too hard to make, so it occurred to me that a s’mores version should be possible.  Sure enough, a bit of searching around online proved me right, and I’ve tweaked things to create a delicious Sweet Jumbles version.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars

sopapilla3Today’s recipe is what I would call a “cheat” recipe – it has only a few ingredients making it very easy (or, as a subcategory on this blog, “slutty jumbles”). This is a Sopapilla Cheesecake.  I discovered Sopapilla several years ago in New Mexico where it is a traditional dessert. These deep-fried pastries are made with a dough similar to tortilla masa, and are best served with a drizzle of honey and perhaps a sprinkling of powdered sugar or cinnamon.  The closest comparison I can come up with are beignets.
