Minty Mallow Log
- 6 ounces mint chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
- 1 package fruit-flavored miniature marshmallows
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut, toasted
Melting Chocolate. Start by melting the mint chocolate chips and butter together. You can go old-school with a double boiler over hot water, or for the tech-savvy, a microwave in 30-second bursts. Remember, we’re melting chocolate, not creating lava.
Mixing Fiesta. In a large bowl, party up with the beaten egg, powdered sugar, and those rebellious chopped walnuts. Then, invite the smooth melted chocolate to the mix and stir up a storm.
Marshmallow Madness. Introduce the colorful marshmallows to the bowl. It’s like a mini party where everyone’s invited – including the marshmallows.
Rolling and Chilling. Now, let’s roll! Spread the mixture onto a long piece of wax paper and form it into a roll, kind of like a festive edible log. Then roll the whole thing in some toasted coconut to make a little coconut crust on the outside. Wrap tightly in the waxed paper. Chill in the fridge until it’s as firm as your resolve to eat healthy tomorrow (about 20 minutes).
Serving Suggestions. Slice this Minty Mallow Log into bite-sized pieces and serve it as a delightful dessert at your next gathering. Ideal for approximately 8-10 people, it’s perfect for both kids and adults. For an added touch, serve each slice on a small plate with a dollop of whipped cream or a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
