Christmas Church Windows


One of my favorite things about old churches are the gorgeous stained glass windows. Ever since I was a little girl I had a dream of getting married in one of those beautiful churches during the winter. I mean, how gorgeous would it be to look out a stained glass church window and see the snowflakes delicately falling down. My first Christmas away at college I went to a cookie exchange party, where everyone shared their favorite holiday recipe. One of my dearest friends shared a recipe for Church Windows. They were simple and easy to make, but meant everything to me. I haven't made Church Windows in years, but after everything that has happened in the past year I decided it was the perfect year to make these gorgeous cookies and I cannot wait to share them with my friends and family.

Church Windows
Ingredients
1 package (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup salted butter
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 bag (10-12 ounces) mini colored marshmallows
1 bag(14 ounces) shredded, sweetened coconut

Directions
1. Melt the chocolate chips and butter in a saucepan that has been placed in a pan of water over love heat (or use a double boiler). Stir until smooth and cool for about 1-2 minutes. Add the nuts and marshmallows and mix to coat.
2. Using wax paper, shape the mixture into three round logs. Roll each log in coconut and shape wrapping firmly in wax paper. Freeze over night. While frozen, slice each log into desired sizes and enjoy.
