Church Windows

Welcome to my month-long Caker Christmas Extravaganza! Throughout December, I'm posting weekly thricely. Wait. Does that make sense?

I couldn’t think of a more festive way to kick off the celebrations than with the stained glass majesty of Church Windows. Can’t you just hear the out-of-sync senior choir now? In fact, you couldn’t get any more festive unless you ate one while dancing to Grandma Got Run Over Reindeer in a pair of knitted slippers with a maraschino cherry stuck to your nose.

Word to the wise: when rolling these, it can get a little messy. Roll them up using a piece of waxed paper so your hands don’t get all choclity.

See you on Wednesday with a “nutty” holiday craft!

1 16 oz package semi sweet chocolate chips
3 cups coloured miniature marshmallows
¼ cup butter or margarine
½ cup pecans or walnuts (optional)
½ cup shredded coconut

Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Add chocolate chips and melt. Cool. Stir in marshmallows and nuts. Divide in half and shape each half into a 6-inch roll. Roll each in coconut and wrap in waxed paper. Keep refrigerated until ready to use. Cut in 1/2" slices. Makes 24.

(Yep, that's a real construction paper cover with a piece of green ribbon holding everything together. It doesn't get more high tech than that.)


  1. Marshmallows! At first, I thought they were multicolored after dinner mints.


    1. Hmmm is right. I wonder how these would taste made with Misty Mints. Which I ate this past weekend. Of course.

  2. We actually had the senior center choir at my work this week. I invited them, and then scheduled myself not to work. Maybe I should make these, bring them to work, and then leave them there. Or take them to the senior center.

    1. I think if you took these to a senior centre, you'd have them all believing that Santa Claus is alive and well and still thinking of them.
