Chocolate Nutty Nuggets

I was browsing around my kitchen the other day, trying to think up some concoction of a snack I could give the kids.  I realized I love to eat chocolate chips, almonds, and sometimes marshmallows with it.  Every once in a while I'll grab a handful and put it in a cup to eat.  So I decided to simplify that version for the kids~if I gave it to them in the cup, they would more than likely eat All the chocolate chips and marshmallows and leave the healthiest part, the nuts.'s my rendition of the snack:

Chocolate Nutty Nuggets
6-7oz almonds or other nut you prefer
1 cup chocolate chips any preference ( I used Tollhouse semi-sweet)
1-2 handfuls of marshmallows (which is about 1 serving)
1 serving of shredded unsweetened coconut (about 1 ounce)
1-2 cookie sheet sized  pieces of wax paper

Directions:  Put a small saucepan on low heat.  Melt the chocolate chips.  Once they are melted, add the almonds and coconut.  Mix well.  Take the pan off the heat.  Add the marshmallows.  Scoop out each serving and drop onto wax paper. 
Mine made:  15 nuggets

Pair with a glass of cold milk and enjoy!


  1. Love it! I'm totally shouting you on FB tomorrow. :) :)

    I wish I had marshmallows here - I'd totally try this. I might have to try something similar because it sounds soooooo yummy. (and we do get something similar to chocolate chips here...finally.)

  2. p.s. You might think about linking this up on a blog hop. It would give you lots of exposure, and readers and followers. I can send you some links if you'd like.
