I'm sure you could melt truffles into the batter, kind of like you would with chocolate. There is a little difference between them and straight chocolate, but nothing that you wouldn't put in there anyway. I say go for it! Of course, it seems a terrible waste of the truffles. Those things are so good straight, you'd be hard pressed to wrestle them away from me!

Ganache will not get hard like the kisses because it's not straight chocolate. It's been mixed with heavy cream so it won't ever get completely hard again. I would say if you do it though, make a high ratio of chocolate to cream. In other words, I'd really just put some chocolate in a double boiler and add a little cream. Maybe 2 parts chocolate to 1 part cream? You know how I make ganache, there is absolutely NO science to my measuring... I bring a bowl of cream to a near boil, then pour it into the chocolate until the chocolate is just covered. So I have no clue, but my normal ration might be 2:1 in favor of the chocolate. I suppose I should measure that some day. icon_rolleyes.gif

The MM idea with the chocolate sounds like a definite need for experimenting! I don't know how that would turn out, but I am ALL FOR finding out!! Whoever does it first, let everyone else know! Hehe.

I put the snack size snickers candy bar in the middle of my peanut butter chocolate chip cookie and the consistency stays wonderful at room temperature. They stay in their original condition. I haven't tried them in cupcakes, but the baking time is only a little longer. I start with them cold.

I've recently been making chocolate cupcake with a marshmallow creme filling using a recipe from here, filling after baking, but I haven't tried putting the filling in pre-baking, or using a marshmallow. Could be good. icon_smile.gif

[Hershey's kisses--while they are real chocolate--also have other additives to help them hold their shape even when they get warm/hot and re-cool, although even then they won't complete reset perfectly.]

Oh, I don't know about that. I boycotted Hershey's long ago--I don't know what's in their chocolate bars, but I wouldn't call it chocolate.

ive tried marshmellows before.. was abit of disaster.. the matshies got so hot and melted and ended up bubbling to the top and destroying the cupcakes.. lol. i think it will take a bit of experimenting to get right.

now 9im curious as to this ganache truffle idea.. would you put the ganche in before you bake? or after?

Oh yah, my favorite is a rolo inside a cookie! It flattens out pretty well, but then there is this delish caramel center. YUM!! Guess who wants to make cookies today, now?! icon_lol.gif

I ended up make ice cream sandwiches & forgot about this thread I started icon_eek.gif Wow Truffles & marshmellow OMG how dangerous does that sound, I can see my hips growing just thinking about it!!! I'm not very culinary smart for trying & adjusting recipes.. So hoping someone will try this experiment soon & let use know thumbs_up.gif I've made a chocolate cake before & added marshmellows on top once it was baked & put it bake in the oven to roast the marshmellow & my kids went absoulutely bonkers over it, i will try & post the recipe...

Thanks Melvira for all your help!! You're a ROCKSTAR!!!!

I use this stuff called "marshmallow fluff" and quite often put that in my choccie cupcakes..... that's pretty much the same as marshmallows just a little bit stickier. I usually bake my cupcakes and then fill with this but I know of people who've used it in choccie brownie recipes and just mixed it in-it makes the centre of brownies all chewy and lush!
