“Church Windows” – Candy Recipe!

I remember growing up in Ohio and every single holiday my Aunt Dee Dee would show up with a plate of “Church Windows.”  It was a favorite around the table. Adults and children would both save room for this extra sweet dessert.  It’s so easy to make.  Only requires one pan. And has 5 ingredients. I picked my ingredients up at Publix and the Dollar Store.  Clearly affordable as well!  So here goes:


  • 1 – 12 ounce bag of milk chocolate morsels.
  • 1 – 10 ounce bag of colored miniature marshmallows.
  • 1/2 Cup chopped nuts. (I use Macadamia nuts but you can use any nut you prefer)
  • 1/2 Cup Butter (1 stick)
  • 1 Cup Coconut


First, melt butter and chocolate chips in a pan. Do this on low heat so you don’t scorch it.

Second, stir in nuts.

Third, stir in marshmallows.

Next, pour half the mixture on a sheet of waxed paper and shape it like a log. Repeat with the remaining mixture … it makes 2 logs!   Then roll each log in 1/2 Cup of coconut.

Finally, stick in the refrigerator until it hardens.  When you take out, slice (like you would a loaf of bread) and you will see the beautiful marshmallows come to life.  It looks like a church window!  They are rich and tasty and you don’t need big servings!

Adalee and I made this candy at the Southern Women’s Show in downtown Birmingham this past weekend and the ladies seemed to enjoy.  If you try, let me know what you think!  Enjoy my friends. xoxo
