Servings 30 cookies


  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup unsalted butter 1 stick
  • 10.5 oz pastel mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 2 cups shredded sweetened coconut


  • In a heavy saucepan, melt the chocolate chips and butter together over low heat, stirring frequently.
  • Allow the mixture to cool for about 5-10 minutes, so it doesn’t melt the marshmallows when you stir them in.
  • While chocolate is cooling, prepare the rolling station by laying out 2 large pieces of parchment or wax paper on a working surface and evenly spreading 1 cup of coconut on top of the parchment.
  • In a large bowl, combine the marshmallows and chopped nuts.
  • Add the melted chocolate mixture over the marshmallow mixture and stir to combine well.
  • Divide the mixture in half and place each portion on top of the coconut you spread out on the parchment.
  • Shape into logs and roll up tightly in the paper.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2-4 hours or until firm enough to cut **you can also freeze about 15 minutes to get a clean cut.
  • Slice into ¼ inch thick cookies.
  • Store in an airtight container in a single layer or stack in the container with parchment paper separating the layers.
