Chocolate Marshmallow Log -- Bonnie's

Bonnie ^O^ .


I like this recipe for many reasons. It is a very easy to prepare and slice, looks great on a dessert plate, soft and chewy, and tastes good, too. It is hard to eat just one slice of this old-fashioned Chocolate Marshmallow Log. I am happy to share this recipe with my JAP friends. Enjoy!

How to Make Chocolate Marshmallow Log -- Bonnie's


  1. Assemble all the ingredients before you begin. (chocolate chips, butter, marshmallows and chopped walnuts.)
  2. Chop the pecans.
  3. Melt the butter in a medium sauce pan over medium low heat, and stir in the chcolate chips.
  4. Stir the mixture until smooth, then remove from burner and set aside to cool. Set timer for 7 minutes. NOTE: YOU DO NOT WANT MARSHMALLOWS TO MELT.
  5. After the mixture is cool, add the walnuts and stir, then add the marshmallows. Gently mix well, and pour mixture onto 2 pieces of wax paper. Roll in the wax paper into two tight 7 inch logs. Then roll in two pieces of tin foil to give your roll some stability. Refrigerate for about a half hour.
  6. Remove from fridge and carefully open the foil. Use the same tin foil you rolled the log in and add the chopped pecans to it. The log should be firm enough to roll in the chopped pecans as depicted in my photo. When the roll is covered with nuts, wrap the log tightly in the same foil and return to the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  7. Slice the log into 1/4 inch slices the next day. Store in a tight container in the fridge. You will have a lot of nuts left in the tin foil, bag them up and freeze them to go in cookies, ice cream sundaes or other desserts.
  8. Here is how it looks! Enjoy!
