It’s almost Christmas time! Do you have snow yet (for those who have some!)? We did about 3 weeks ago but it’s long gone! We have abnormally high temperature for the season!
Ok so here is a recipe my mom does each and every Christmas, a treat that we are always eager to eat. She always does all these little desserts: fudge, Nanaimo (like the Halloween Nanaimo but without the orange food coloring!), cookies I will be doing very soon for you (those are quite new, maybe 5-6 Christmas’, the others she’s been doing since before I was born!) and all other treats she might think of! This is actually the first time I do them myself so I guess you are lucky! They are surprisingly easy to make! They are always a huge hit so don’t hesitate to double, triple and more the recipe! My mom must double it because each Christmas we have white marshmallow rolls and these colourful, fruit-taste ones. I’ve never been able to choose if I prefer the white ones or the fruit ones, I think I never will!
For the next few weeks I’ll be mostly focusing on Christmas-themed sweets. Hope you’ll like them!
Chocolate Marshmallow Rolls
2 rolls, about 12 pieces each.
6 squares semi-sweet chocolate (you can use 1 package of chocolate chips instead)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts (you can omit them if you want to)
1 package small marshmallows (white or colored/fruits)
- Melt the butter and the chocolate in a saucepan. Remove from heat.
- Add the egg and the powdered sugar.
- Let cool a little then add the vanilla, the nuts and the marshmallows (you don’t want them to melt so wait for the mix to be cool enough). Mix well.
- Pour on two aluminium foil and spread out. Form into a roll using the foil to surround it.
- Refrigerate (or freeze). When ready to serve, remove the foil and slice the roll. You can keep them in the freezer for a long long time!
