Notes: If you cant wake up in the morning…eat one of these. There is so much sugar you will be awake for hours. Keep them covered or the marshmallows will get hard, but they are so good!!! These are really good, but you can only eat a small bit, so if you don’t want a lot cut the recipe in half, and use as good a chocolate as you can. I brought these to work during a long busy day and I think they helped everyone wake up! They were hard to carry to work though, I think I got a bruise on my hip from the bag hitting me!

I tried these today! Amazing! But Evan and I fought all day about whether to keep the in the fridge (me) or on the counter to get warm (Evan).
