Root Beer Float Truffles may be the best candy ever. Mainly because they feature our favorite soda!

I am one of those people who just loves summer! I get excited as we count down the last days of the school year. I love the heat. I love sleeping in. I love staying in my pajamas on a rainy day!

I love the break from homework. I love going to the zoo with my kids.

I love watching my kids play summer sports.

I love going camping, hiking and of course, vacations.

Right now, I am missing those summer days desperately. We’re knee deep in homework, early mornings, and cold nights at fall sports. I decided to grab hold of one of my most favorite things about summer – root beer floats!

Root beer floats seem to be such a personal thing. I prefer my root beer float to have the glass PACKED full of ice cream. Then I pour on my root beer, and eat the ice cream, saving all the root beer to be slurped in the end. My husband on the other hand tends to drink his root beer, scoop in maybe one scoop of ice cream, then drink more root beer.

However, when it comes to these root beer float truffles, we can agree on one thing. They are delicious. Just pop them in your mouth and enjoy! Not only is there root beer flavor on the inside, but the drizzle is made with more root beer flavoring! YUM.

Root Beer Float Truffles Recipe

    60 Servings

Ingredients

truffle:
  • 2 cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter
  • 3/4 cup Heavy Cream
  • 7 ounces Marshmallow Fluff, (1 jar)
  • 24 ounces White Chocolate Chips, (2 packages)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Root Beer Concentrate
garnish:
  • 16 ounces Vanilla Candy Coating, (like Candiquik)
  • 3/4 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Root Beer Concentrate
  • 1 teaspoon Milk

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, heat sugar, butter, and cream until combined. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Stir continuously for 3 minutes, while boiling. Remove from heat and add in root beer flavoring.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add white chocolate morsels and marshmallow cream. Pour hot root beer mixture over this and beat with an electric mixer until smooth, about a minute or two.
  3. Put this mixture in the refrigerator for about two hours. When it has firmed up some, use a 1Tbsp scoop and scoop truffles onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Repeat until all truffles are formed. Freeze truffles for about one hour.
  4. Melt vanilla candy coating according to package directions. Using a toothpick, dip each truffle in vanilla and place back on parchment paper. Repeat until all truffles are dipped.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, root beer flavoring and milk. Spoon into a small Ziploc bag and cut off the corner. Drizzle over truffles. Keep truffles in refrigerator, best served cold! Truffles will stay fresh for up to two weeks in an airtight container in refrigerator.
 

Notes

  • Some brands of Root Beer flavoring are CLEAR, which will not produce the color contrast for this recipe. McCormick’s is the brand I used.
