Cathedral Window Cookie Recipe

  • One 24-ounce bag semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 stick of butter (cubed)
  • One 16-ounce bag multi-colored mini marshmallows
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts (or any other kind of nuts, your choice)

       Melt the chocolate chips and butter on low in a medium saucepan. Let it cool completely for 5-10 minutes. Afterwards, add the egg and blend with the chocolate. Add the marshmallows to the mix until completely incorporated. Then add the nuts and mix, making sure everything is coated in chocolate.

      Spoon about a half cup of the mixture onto parchment paper, and use the paper to roll into a log. Repeat for the remaining mixture, about 4 logs total.

       Wrap each log in foil and freeze until firm, at least 1 hour or up to overnight.

       When ready to eat, cut into 6 pieces while still frozen. Place the cookies on a serving dish to thaw for 15-20 minutes before serving.
