This chocolate glass recipe couldn’t be easier. I’ve seen this confection, also known as Church Windows or Cathedral Windows Candy, Marshmallow Yule Log, or simply Stained Glass Candy. But is that a dessert? A cookie? Sweets? I will let you decide!

With so many holiday events happening this season, it’s easy to forget one. Suddenly it is 8 p.m. at your daughter’s home reminding you that she needs treats for her classroom the next day. Or you’ve been so busy wrapping gifts that you suddenly realize you need a gift for a neighbor, your pastor, or your child’s favorite babysitter. What are you going to do?! Make Chocolate Stained Glass !!
All you need for this indulgence are three simple ingredients!
- one 12 ounce sachets of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- a stick (1/2 cup) of salted butter
- a 10 ounce bag of colored marshmallows – I use Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows. These are not only colored, but also lightly flavored! I’m usually not a fan of the fruity marshmallows, but in Chocolate Stained Glass these marshmallows add a special touch. But color is most important for the effect!
Steps for making chocolate glass
The steps to take this pleasure are super easy too!
Step 1. Melt the chocolate and butter together. You can either do this in a microwave in 30-second bursts at high power with stirring at each interval. Or you can melt in a saucepan, but you need to look carefully and turn the pan on low heat so the chocolate doesn’t stick.
Step 2. Stir in the whole bag of marshmallows. If your chocolate is quite hot, it can be a good idea to let the chocolate mixture sit for a few minutes so you don’t melt the marshmallows. The chocolate glass doesn’t look like much, but wait … the “magic” will appear later!
Step 3. Scoop the chocolate and stained glass mixture onto waxed paper or plastic wrap and form a log.
Step 4. Roll the wax paper (or plastic wrap) around the chocolate and press on it lightly to make the air holes smaller and make the mixture more solid. Then roll up the ends tightly to compress the trunk.
Step 5. Put the wood in the fridge for an hour or more and clean up! 🙂 (Mom was BUSTED !! And yes, me did like the pot …)
Once the trunk has hardened, roll off the waxed paper or plastic wrap and cut the trunk into 1/2 inch (inch) wide pieces.
Have you noticed that those chocolate stained glass all look uneven and bumpy? It does not matter! Not when you see them cut!
Note: This dessert / biscuit / candy should be kept in the refrigerator until served. At room temperature, they become soft and half-melted.
Chocolate Stained Glass is a HUGE hit with kids (young and old). Little Chick brought this over for her birthday last year – and her classmates asked to do it again this year!
Chocolate glass is a wonderful addition to your treats at any time of the year, not just for Christmas. These pastel colors look perfect for Easter or other spring celebrations – when you need a break from lemon desserts or all those eggs! 🙂
