I won’t be receiving my Valentine’s chocolate till this weekend, so I decided to make a little something to hold me over. This is the first time I’ve made this since I was a Girl Scout, oh the memories. My Girl Scout leader would buy solid chocolate bunnies during the post-Easter sale. Then we would melt them and pour over mini marshmallows, nuts, and coconut; rolled in plastic wrap, cool till solid then sliced up to share. I basically followed the same principles but with dark chocolate and vegan marshmallows.
Marshmallow Chocolate Bar
7oz of chocolate (dark or milk)
3/4 cup of mini marshmallows or cut up larger marshmallows
1/3 cup of toasted slivered almonds (or any nuts you have, chopped)
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)
Melt your chocolate, either by stove or microwave. To toast up your nuts (if they aren’t toasted), heat up a dry pan on medium high for a minute or two, add in nuts, gently stir for a 2mins or when they start to turn brown. Pour out the nuts and then toast your coconut in hot pan for a minute, stirring, till you start to smell it (doesn’t have to turn colors). Mix everything together, and then add chocolate. Place piece of plastic wrap in a bowl (or large butter dish, would work better) you may need to divide into two logs, spread out mixture along the length of the wrap. Carefully pinch the ends of the plastic wrap, folding over itself and forming a log (might not really be log shaped), twisting the end close, leave in bowl or container and cool in fridge or freezer till solid.
