Wow... this was incredibly easy, Member timsolady

Start to finish was maybe 15 minutes. By the time the marshmallows and chocolate chips were stirred you could feel it beginning to set so no worries about whether or not it is going to turn out Taste is as good as doing it the old fashioned way, great Christmas gifts!
