The July Daring Bakers' challenge was hosted by Nicole at Sweet Tooth. She chose Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Cookies and Milan Cookies from pastry chef Gale Gand of the Food Network.
So I decided to tackle the Chocolate Covered Marshmallow cookies first since I decided that they would be fun to do first. I know that I would not be able to make homemade marshmallows this month at all, but I did buy those jumbo marshmallows. The first batch I made some covered in semisweet chocolate, and others in milk chocolate and covered some in different toppings.
The next time I decided to make the Chocolate Covered Marshmallow cookies was for the president's retreat. I was leading a workshop that actually had the title "Chocolate River with Marshmallows." It's a team building workshop but it also works the creativity of the people involved.
They were both easy and fun to make. I'm really glad that I was able to make these and have fun feeding my friends while doing so!
