Cathedral Windows Christmas Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs beaten (or any egg beater type product, as long as it is pasturized)
  • 1 10.5 ounce package rainbow colored miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 to 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup shredded coconut

Instructions 

  • Melt together the butter and chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler or in the microwave. Stir to blend, then stir in the eggs, colored marshmallows and pecans.
  • Pour the mixture into a 9x5 inch loaf pan, lined with wax paper or cling wrap. Dust with powdered sugar (optional, I skipped it) and refrigerate until firm, at least 12 or even 24 hours is best.
  • Remove chilled dough from loaf pan, remove the wax paper or cling wrap. If desired, roll in shredded coconut. Slice into 1/4 inch slices.

Notes

 This recipe needs to be stored in the refrigerator and can be made a day ahead.
