Stained Glass Cookies/Candies



FLASHBACK to the 70's again!
My Grandma used to make these every year for Christmas.
My brother and I devoured them!


Stained Glass Cookies/Candy
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional) or other nuts (optional)
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) bag colored miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup flaked coconut (optional)
  1. Ina large saucepan, melt the butter and the chips over low heat until completely melted. ***OR do as I always do and just toss em in a big bowl and use the microwave. Much easier! Microwave it for 45seconds.... stir.... then microwave it in 20 second intervals until the chocolate chips are melted and stir it smooth.***
  2. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and chopped nuts.
  3. Cool mixture for about 10 minutes, until cool but not not to the point where it is hardening. (you don't want it hot enough to melt your marshmallows!)
  4. Fold in the marshmallows and stir until well-coated (it will look like you don't have enough chocolate but don't worry) Spoon mixture down the center of a 24" piece of waxed paper or aluminum foil and shape into a log.
  5. At this point if you like coconut roll the log in coconut to cover.
  6. Wrap the log firmly in the foil or waxed paper, folding the ends snugly.
  7. Refrigerate 2 hours or until ready to serve.
  8. When ready cut into 1/4 inch slices and enjoy!

  3. I missed these in the 1970s but I'll have to try them now. My son would probably love it.
