Recipe of the Month - October 2011


I was out to eat at a very fun restaurant when I first saw these. I asked how they were made and I have been making them ever since. These are so much fun to make that once you make them you’ll want to make them all the time.

1 10-ounce bag marshmallows, not mini size
3/4 cup chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate

Place the marshmallows into a bowl with water so that all of the marshmallows are covered.
Place the chocolate cookie crumbs onto a plate and place the graham cracker crumbs onto another plate. Work with 1 marshmallow at a time, otherwise the marshmallows will dry and the covering won’t stick. Roll half of the marshmallows in the chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs and the other half into the graham cracker crumbs. Shake off any excess cookie crumbs from the marshmallows. Place on a baking sheet to set in a cool place for about an hour.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Dip one end of the covered marshmallow into the melted chocolate. Start with the graham cracker covered marshmallows because these are a little easier to dip. If any cookie crumbs fall into the melted chocolate, no worries. Place chocolate covered marshmallows on a baking sheet and leave to set in a cool place.
Makes 40 marshmallows.
