Yield: 24 Servings
|1 pack||Butter softened|
|12 ounces||Semisweet chocolate chips|
|1 teaspoon||Vanilla extract|
|1 cup||Chopped walnuts|
|10½ ounce||Marshmallows multi-color miniature|
|1 cup||Flaked coconut, divided|
======================================================= ============== ==== == In a large saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate chips over low heat until completely melted. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla and walnuts. Cool the mixture for about 15 minutes, until cool but not to the point of hardening. Fold in the marshmallows and stir until well coated. Spoon half of the mixture lengthwise down the center of a 12- inch piece of waxed paper. Shape into a 2" x 12" log and place at one edge of the waxed paper. Sprinkle ½ cup coconut over the remainder of the waxed paper. Roll the log over the coconut, evenly coating the outside of the entire log. Wrap the log firmly in the waxed paper, folding the ends snugly. Repeat with the other half of the marshmallow mixture and ½ cup coconut, Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours or overnight. Unwrap each log and cut into ¼ ~inch slices. NOTE: These are perfect to brighten up your cookie trays. The colors are just like stained glass church windows.
Note: Slice this and serve it plain or spread with cream cheese or butter.
