This chocolate glass recipe couldn't be easier. I have also seen this confection as a stained glass window or cathedral window candy, marshmallow yule log or simply a stained glass candy. But is it a dessert? A cookie? Sweets? I let you decide!

With so many holiday events this season, it's easy to forget one. Suddenly it is 8:00 p.m. at your daughter's house and she reminds you that she needs treats for her classroom the next day. Or you were so busy wrapping gifts that you suddenly realize that you need a gift for a neighbor, your pastor, or your child's favorite baby sitter. What are you going to do?! Make Chocolate Stained Glass !!
All you need for this pleasure are three simple ingredients!
- one 12 ounce sachets of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- a stick (1/2 cup) of salted butter
- a 10oz bag of colored marshmallows – I'm using Kraft jet puff marshmallows, These are not only colored, but slightly flavored! I'm usually not a fan of the fruity marshmallows, but these marshmallows in Chocolate Stained Glass give it a special touch. But color is most important for the effect!
Steps to Make Chocolate Stained Glass
The steps to make this pleasure are super easy too!
Step 1. Melt the chocolate and butter together. You can either stir this in a microwave in 30-second bursts at high power and at any interval. You can also melt a saucepan, but you need to watch it carefully and put the pan on low heat to prevent the chocolate from breaking down.
Step 2. Stir in the whole bag of marshmallows. If your chocolate is very hot, it is advisable to let the chocolate mixture rest for a few minutes so that you do not melt the marshmallows. The chocolate jar doesn't look like much yet, but wait … The "magic" will appear later!
Step 3. Scoop the chocolate glass mixture onto wax paper or plastic wrap and form a block.
Step 4. Roll the wax paper (or plastic wrap) around the chocolate and press lightly on it to reduce the air holes and make the mixture firmer. Then roll up the ends tightly to compress the stem.
Step 5. Put the tree trunk in the fridge for an hour or more and clean up! Mama (Mommy was GORNED !! And yes, me did like the pot …)
Once the stem has hardened, unwrap the wax paper or plastic wrap and cut the stem into 1/2 inch wide pieces.
Did you notice that these chocolate stained glass logs 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 serving. At room temperature, they become soft and half melted.
Chocolate Stained Glass is a HUGE hit for children (young and old). Little Chick got it for her birthday last year – and her classmates asked to do it again this year!
Chocolate stained glass is a wonderful addition to your treats in every season, not just at Christmas. These pastel colors go perfectly with Easter or other spring celebrations – when you need a break from lemon desserts or all of these eggs! 🙂
