My Dad absolutely loves Idaho Spuds candy. I wanted to surprise him with a homemade version. I tried and tried and finally I do believe I have nailed it. At least he tells I have. Every Christmas he looks forward to seeing these in his goodie box.
In a small microwave bowl, melt the milk chocolate chips and the butter together in the microwave for about 1 minute. Stir until fully melted. Set aside
In a large mixing bowl mix well the beaten eggs, powdered sugar, vanilla and salt. Add the melted chocolate and butter mixture. Stir to combine. Then add the mini- marshmallows and combine well. May have to use your hands to really mix it all up. Don't be afraid to get your hands gooey.
Scoop out a tablespoon of the mixture, shape as well as you can into a log. Then roll in the shredded coconut or nuts. Continue until all the chocolate mixture is used up.
