This Marshmallow Yule Log is one of my very favourite retro Christmas recipes! This treat is pure chocolate, walnut and coloured marshmallow goodness! 

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 24 slices
Calories: 212 kcal
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 5 1/2 cups (10.5 ounce package) rainbow colored miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  1. Melt the butter and chocolate chips in a pan over low heat. Let the mixture cool slightly so that when you add the marshmallows they won't melt.

  2. Stir in the walnuts and the marshmallows. Let cool.

  3. Spread coconut on waxed paper. Divide the cooled mixture into two even portions. Form each portion into a long roll. Coat the rolls with the coconut, I do this by using the parchment paper to roll them back and forth as the mixture is sticky! 

  4. Wrap the rolls in waxed paper and  then again in plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight or longer. 

  5. To serve, defrost and cut into slices that are around 1/3 of an inch thick.
