  • 9 ounces of dark chocolate chopped or 1 ½ cups good quality dark or semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup extra crunchy peanut butter
  • 18 large marshmallows
  • Line a loaf pan with nonstick foil.


  • Put the chopped chocolate (or chips) in a microwave-safe bowl. Add the butter and heat on 50% power for 1 minute. Stir well. Repeat, microwaving at 50% and stirring every 60 seconds, until mixture is almost fully melted. Now add the peanut butter and continue the melting process, stirring after 30 seconds, until smooth.
  • Spread a thin layer of this mixture across the bottom of your lined loaf pan, then stand the marshmallows across the bottom of the pan.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture over the marshmallows, pushing it gently between the cracks and into the sides.
  • Chill the loaf for about 2 hours or until chocolate mixture is firmly set. Lift from the pan, peel away foil and trim edges. Cut into large blocks or cut cross-wise into strips


This recipe was inspired by a combination of a recipe my friend gave me and a recipe from Taste of Home.
