Move over s'mores! Chocolate and marshmallows combine with a touch of coffee and toasted nuts, to make a candy even adults want to devour.
- 3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon instant coffee
- 9 - 11 homemade marshmallows or jumbo marshmallows
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans lightly toasted
- Sprinkles for topping
Prepare a 9x9" square pan with two layers of parchment paper, making sure that all four sides of the pan are protected with parchment. Tip: use a bit of cooking spray between the layers of parchment paper and crease the paper at the edges to keep the paper from slipping.
In a 2 quart saucepan, combine the chocolate, cream, instant coffee and vanilla. Heat over low to medium-low heat until everything is combined and smooth, stirring often to prevent scorching the chocolate.
Spread a small amount of chocolate to create a thin layer on the bottom of the pan.
Place marshmallows on top of the chocolate. If using large marshmallows, you may want to cut them in half on the long side so they aren't too tall in the pan. You can also try using mini marshmallows.
Sprinkle the chopped pecans between and on top of the marshmallows.
Spread the remaining chocolate over top of the marshmallows and nuts, ensuring that everything is covered. Sprinkle holiday sprinkles on top.
Refrigerate to set, at least one hour. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut the candy into squares.
