I love this recipe - I've used it for years! Instead of making bar cookies, I spread the coconut out on foil wrap. Then put the chocolate/marshmallow mixture down the middle in a log shape. Roll up the foil/chocolate in a log shape making sure coconut gets onto the chocolate. Chill until firm. Slice and you'll have beautiful stained glass windows! Read More

I know there a lot of people who make these and thought I would try them. I did not care at all for the colored marshmellow flavors with the chocolate. The coconut just seemed odd with it. Maybe I'm just a Rocky Road gal. Read More

WE love these -- I do like the other reviewer and roll them up in wax paper to then cool and slice. I find the presentation is beautiful this way and that my electric knife works the best for slicing them! Read More

My hubby and kids dont like the texture of nuts or coconut in their chocolate and the recipe works just fine without them. Like another reviewer I also couldnt find rainbow-marshmellows that were "normal" flavored so we used the colored marshmellows that are fruit-flavored. Growing up these cookies were always brought to every church Christmas party...these are just like I remember them. I also prefer to put the marshety-choco mix in a long log down the center of a sheet of wax paper twist off the ends and secure with twisty-ties and then refrigerate overnight or for several hours before slicing them. To store them I put them in an air tight tin separating the layers with sheets of wax paper. I recommend keeping them in a cool spot to keep the chocolate nice and firm until ready to serve.

Great recipe. My mom makes this every year she substitutes peanut butter for the butter and uses white mini marshmellows - it is to die for! Read More

These are my favorite holiday treats! I add a teaspoon of vanilla and some chopped walnuts to the melted chocolate as it is cooling. Read More

I have made these for as many years as I can remember and my mom making them before that. The kids (and adults) absolutely love these and they are so simple to make! I do omit the coconut and roll it into a log on powdered sugar coated waxed paper and chill until set. Then I just cut into circles that way you can see all the pretty colors. Read More

My friends and I like this chocolate candy but i think I'm going to use rainbow rice as a substitute to dessicated coconut and use more butter in the future Read More
