This recipe is one of my favorite make ahead desserts but ancient-I got it via my mother from an aunt-I think it is probably well over 50 years old. Whenever they invented the marshmallow... When did they invent the marshmallow?
- 15 marshmallows
- 1⁄2 cup skim milk
- 4 (1 ounce) milk chocolate candy bars with almonds
- 1 1⁄3 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup cream
- Set out butter to soften.
- Put first three ingredients in top pan of double boiler, melt, cool, stir, set aside.
- Combine graham crumbs, powdered sugar, and butter.
- Set aside 2 tablespoons of crumb mixtures.
- Toss and press into 8" square pan.
- Whip cream and fold into marshmallow mix.
- Put this chocolate mixture on top of the crumb layer.
- Put remaining crumbs on top.
- Refrigerate several hours.
I loved how easy this was to make, and the texture was great - like a huge soft & fluffy marshmallow. It's pretty sweet and a small piece is more than enough to satisfy. This took a while to set up for me (about 6 hours or so), but I didn't need it right way so it was not a problem.
Rich and creamy but not too rich. This is a very light dessert with the whipped cream folded in. I put the pan in the freezer a while to firm them up enough to cut and they taste very good; sort of like an ice cream bar. These hit the spot!! Made for Newest Zaar Tag February 2010.
