I saw this (click on the link): recipe on Everyday Food and had to try it.
I made them for a party my kids' had earlier this summer. I don't usually do kid parties. But, desperate times call for desperate measures. It was a water party complete with water balloons, popsicles, a slip n slide, and then these cookies and water punch for a treat. (If you every make water punch, granular citric acid is found at health food stores, and you can substitute 1/3 cup lemon juice for 1 T. lemon extract.)
A couple tips I learned. First, if you use salted butter, reduce the added salt by a quarter teaspoon. Second, if you substitute milk chocolate for dark, don't add the squares until half way through the baking process. Milk chocolate doesn't like to bake. Third, you will use a lot of chocolate. Go for the big bars.
Fourth, kitchen shears work great for cutting large marshmallows in half.
And, fifth, these puppies don't last long.
Don't they look pretty? They taste even better.
