To make these Gluten Free Chocolate Marshmallow Truffles, you will need the following ingredients:
– 1 g package of large marshmallows
– 1 ½ cups of gluten-free graham cracker crumbs
– 1 ½ cups of chocolate chips
– 1 cup of marshmallow fluff
I prefer using gluten-free graham cracker crumbs because they give a nice texture and flavor to the truffles. You can easily find them at your local grocery store or online. Also, make sure to get chocolate chips that are labeled as gluten-free to keep this recipe safe for those who have a gluten intolerance.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the large marshmallows and chocolate chips. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring each time until completely melted and smooth.
- Once melted, fold in the marshmallow fluff and stir until well combined.
- Gently add the gluten-free graham cracker crumbs to the mixture and stir until well combined.
- Roll the mixture into balls about the size of golf balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Let them sit for an hour in room temperature to allow them to harden.
- Enjoy as is or decorate them with toppings like chopped nuts or sprinkles.
Tips for Perfect Results
- If you want to add a little crunch to your truffles, mix some chopped nuts or graham cracker crumbs into the mixture before you start making the balls.
- To make clean-up easier, use a cookie scoop to make the balls. This will allow for uniformity and less mess.
- Place the truffles in the fridge if you live in a humid environment to avoid them melting while they set.
- If you are allergic to nuts, use gluten-free cookie crumbs or crushed cereal instead of chopped nuts as toppings.

Substitutions and Variations
As a nutritionist and food blogger, I understand that everyone has different dietary needs and preferences. With this Gluten-Free Chocolate Marshmallow Truffles recipe, there are plenty of substitutions and variations you can make to suit your specific needs.
For those who do not have to follow a gluten-free diet, you can easily replace the gluten-free graham cracker crumbs with regular ones. You can also substitute the marshmallows with marshmallow fluff, which will give them a creamier texture.
If you want to take these truffles to the next level, try adding in some peanut butter or even crushed Oreo crumbs to the mixture. This will give your truffles a new depth of flavor that will delight your taste buds in every bite.
For those looking for a dairy-free version, use dairy-free chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. You can even top them off with some peppermint marshmallows for a festive twist!
Another fun variation could be making these truffles as cookie dough truffles by using shortbread cookies in place of the graham cracker crumbs. You could even make them chocolate covered marshmallow bars by doubling the recipe and layering melted chocolate over them before chilling in the freezer.
In short, feel free to get creative and play around with this recipe by trying out different ingredients if you desire something new or if you need to follow a specific diet requiring substitutes. These easy-to-make treats are super versatile and offer all sorts of adventures in flavor combinations!
Serving and Pairing
Once you’ve whipped up a batch of these gluten free chocolate marshmallow truffles, it’s time to decide how you want to serve and pair them. These truffles are rich and decadent, so they make for the perfect indulgent treat after a meal.
If you’re looking to pair your truffles with something, consider some fresh berries or a dollop of whipped cream on the side. The tartness of the berries will help cut through the sweetness of the truffles, while the creaminess of the whipped cream will complement their fudgy texture.
These truffles are also great as part of a dessert board or charcuterie tray. Pair them with items like shortbread cookies, peanut butter bars, or mini marshmallows for an indulgent and impressive spread that’s sure to impress your guests.
If you’re looking to dress your truffles up even further, try dipping them in melted chocolate and sprinkling them with crushed graham cracker crumbs or peppermint candies. They can also be served alongside other chocolate treats such as oreo balls or chocolate covered marshmallows.
Finally, make sure to enjoy these truffles alongside a hot cup of coffee or tea – this will help balance out the sweetness and make for a truly delightful experience.
Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating
Are you planning ahead for a party or holiday gathering and want to get ahead of your dessert game? These Gluten Free Chocolate Marshmallow Truffles are the perfect make-ahead treat! I love having a batch of these sitting in the fridge, ready to go for any last-minute get-together.
To make these truffles ahead of time, simply follow the recipe directions as normal and shape them into balls. Once shaped, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze them for 1-2 hours. After they are firm, transfer them to an airtight container or freezer bag and store them in the freezer for up to one month.
When you’re ready to serve, remove the truffles from the freezer and let them thaw in the refrigerator overnight. If you don’t have that much time, then you can let them thaw at room temperature for around an hour before serving.
If you have any leftovers (which is unlikely!), keep them stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. These truffles also work great as a gift or party favor. Just place them in a decorative box or bag and watch as they quickly disappear!
For reheating, I recommend simply letting them come to room temperature before serving. You don’t want to risk melting the chocolate coating by reheating them directly. However, if there are any leftover truffles that have been stored in the refrigerator or freezer, be sure to let them fully thaw first before bringing them to room temperature.
Enjoy these delicious Gluten Free Chocolate Marshmallow Truffles as a perfect after-dinner indulgence or as a treat at your next party!
Tips for Perfect Results
When it comes to making any recipe, having some tips and tricks up your sleeve can make all the difference in achieving perfect results. For those looking to create gluten-free chocolate marshmallow truffles that are both fudgy and rich, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Firstly, be sure to use high-quality chocolate chips. These will not only taste better but will also help the truffles hold their shape when cooled. Dairy-free options such as Enjoy Life or Hu chocolates work particularly well in this recipe.
Secondly, when combining the melted chocolate with the marshmallows for the filling, it is crucial to keep a close eye on the temperature of the mixture. Overheating can cause the marshmallows to break down and become too sticky to work with. To avoid this, heat at short intervals of 15-20 seconds in the microwave or use a double boiler over low heat, stirring often until smooth.
Thirdly, for those who prefer a slightly less sweet flavor profile, try using dark chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet or milk chocolate options. They bring a slightly bitter note that balances out the sweetness of the marshmallows.
Lastly, consider dusting the finished truffles with cocoa powder or powdered sugar just before serving for an extra touch of elegance. These gluten-free chocolate marshmallow truffles are sure to impress friends and family alike when executed with these helpful tips.
In conclusion, these Gluten-Free Chocolate Marshmallow Truffles are the perfect treat for any occasion. Not only are they deliciously fudgy, but they are also incredibly easy to make and can be easily adapted to fit any dietary restrictions. From gluten-free to dairy-free, these truffles are sure to please!
So next time you’re looking for a tasty dessert to serve at a party or simply want something sweet to snack on, give these truffles a try. They’re sure to satisfy your cravings and leave you feeling satisfied, without any guilt or regret.
In addition, by using high-quality ingredients such as chocolate chips and marshmallows, you can enjoy the natural flavors without any additives or harmful preservatives. And with the added bonus of being gluten-free, you won’t have to worry about any negative reactions from sensitive individuals or those with celiac disease.
All in all, this recipe is a must-try for anyone who loves chocolate and marshmallows. It’s guaranteed to be an instant hit amongst family and friends, and you’ll find yourself making it time and time again. So go ahead and indulge in these amazing truffles today!
