  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 12 oz pkg semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 10 1/2 oz pkg colored mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup chopped nuts optional
  • 1 3 1/2 oz pkg flaked coconut optional


  • Melt chocolate chips and butter over low heat or in microwave. 
  • Place marshmallows (and nuts, if desired) in a large bowl.
  • Fold chocolate mixture into marshmallows until all marshmallows are coated.
  • Lay out a strip of wax paper. Sprinkle coconut (if desired) in a long, wide strip down the length of the wax paper.
  • Shape chocolate marshmallow mixture into a log and lay on top of the coconut strip (or down the center of the wax paper if you don't use the coconut). Roll back and forth to coat in coconut and sprinkle additional coconut on top.
  • Wrap wax paper tightly around the log and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
  • When ready to serve, slice log into 1/2 inch slices.
