Dessert is usually sweet, but how often is it this pretty? Use multicolored marshmallows to create a sweet that swirls with color!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 package (10-1/2 ounces) multicolored miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut, divided

What to Do

  1. In a large saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly. 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.
  2. Spoon half of the mixture lengthwise down the center of an 18-inch piece of waxed paper. Shape into a 12 x 2" log and place at one edge of the waxed paper. Sprinkle 1/2 cup coconut over the remainder of the waxed paper.
  3. Roll the log over the coconut, evenly coating the outside of the entire log. Wrap the log tightly in the waxed paper, folding the ends snugly. Repeat with the other half of the marshmallow mixture and the remaining 1/2 cup coconut.- Chill until firm, at least 2 hours or overnight. Unwrap each log and cut into 1/2-inch slices.


Yields about 4 dozen cookies.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I've been making them for the past 50 years but we called them " Stained Glass Cookies" and you can use ground walnuts to coat the waxed paper if you don't like the coconut coating. I have two rolls in my refrigerator at this time. I rate these a 10

Not sure when you left this comment- but am so glad you did! I have all the ingredients except for coconut. Am happy to know I can use ground walnuts ( I have plenty of those ) ! Stained glass cookies must have many variations, a friend used to send me 'Stained Glass' candies she melted multi-colored hard candies together ( like life-savors) let them cool and harden and broke them up to ship them to me in containers. Looked just like pieces of stained glass windows! I'm going to try this New-to-Me recipe! Am sure my family and myself will enjoy them! Any other hints or shortcuts etc. greatly appreciated! TY!
