S'mores Cakeballs, and Going on Vacation!

Sorry about the picture, I was too busy shoving them in my mouth to take a good photo!

Hello my friends! Can you believe it's almost August, where does the time go? We are getting packed and ready to take a three week vacation with my family, one week in San Diego, and two weeks in Idaho. After that, we're coming home to be greeted by Glenn's parents up until school starts back up. Whew, what a month! I'm very excited, I just hope our kids survive all the traveling and the nonstop schedule. So, because of our month ahead, I decided that it would probably be easier on everyone if I just took a month off the blog as well. I'm not even sure if I'll have access to the computer during that time, and I'd really like to devote every second I get to my family. I'll definitely be back in September, and hopefully with a lot of fun recipes cooked up by me and my mom during our trip! I'm going to miss you guys and I'll definitely look forward to catching up when I get back!

So, I figured since I'm the cakeball crazy, I may as well take off with my last cakeball creation. A while ago my friend suggested that I try s'mores cakeballs, and it didn't take long at all for them to materialize. They were so yummy and had all the delicious flavor of s'mores, sans the campfire. The one thing I would not do again is roll them in graham crackers. It tastes good the day they are made, but they soften over time and add an undesirable texture. Enjoy!

S'more's Cakeballs

Ingredients

1 devil's food cake mix, prepared according to directions
1 large container marshmallow fluff
1 cellophane package graham crackers, ground into crumbs
1 bag milk chocolate chips
1 scoop Crisco, if desired

Directions

Crumble the cake into a large bowl. Add entire jar of marshmallow fluff, as well as graham cracker crumbs, and mix until completely combined. Roll into small balls, just a little bigger then marbles, place on plate. Freeze for 1-2 hours. Melt chocolate chips and Crisco, either in microwave, or over a double boiler. Put cakeball into chocolate and spoon chocolate over cakeballs. Use spoon to scoop up cakeball and tap off excess chocolate. Place on wax paper to dry and cool. Store in the fridge.

Have a wonderful month everyone and I'll see you in the fall!!
