More of a candy than a cookie, slices of colored marshmallows create the "stained glass" in a chocolaty window surrounded by flaked coconut.
Makes about 60
1 (12-ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts (I left these out as we did a nut-free exchange)
1 (12-ounce) package colored mini marshmallows (about 9 cups)
7 ounces sweetened grated coconut (about 2 cups)
Heat butter and chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth.( I used my microwave,just under 2 minutes,find that much friendlier then dealing with a double boiler!) Cool slightly. Toss marshmallows and nuts in a large bowl; stir in chocolate. Tear five 9-inch sheets of waxed paper and sprinkle each generously with coconut.(I used a mix of dessicated and shredded) Divide dough into fifths and place each fifth on a sheet of waxed paper. Roll tightly into 2-inch diameter logs(I had a bit of a struggle with this and used scotch tape to keep everything rolled up tight!) and refrigerate overnight(I cooled in the fridge and then transferred to freezer) or until firm. Before serving, unwrap from waxed paper and cut into 1/2" slices.Lovely wax-paper wrapped logs! Any one who has made these before and has any tips let me know! They are messy but worth it when you have neat slices of 'Cathedral Windows' lined up on your baking tray! They make me smile!
Also pictured are my 'famous'chocolate dipped marshmallows. The big boys named these Snowman Hats and the are a kids favorite! How too's coming soon!
