Chocolate Marshmallow Candy

My cousin Karen found this recipe on the Weight Watchers' website. It's very yummy, but hard to stop at one. I made some adjustments, and cut the original recipe in half, but tastes just as good as the original. It uses bittersweet chocolate, but make sure it is good quality, at least 60% cacao.



Chocolate Marshmallow Candy
Makes 16 pieces

1 bar (4 ounces) bittersweet chocolate 60 % cacao
1 tsp. Better 'n Peanut Butter
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup mini marshmallows

Line an 8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, allowing the foil to hang over the edges.

Break up the chocolate into pieces and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Add the peanut butter to the bowl. Microwave on HIGH at 15 minute intervals, stirring, until melted, about 30 seconds. Mix well to make sure the chocolate is completely melted. Add the vanilla and cinnamon to the bowl. Mix well. Add the mini marshmallows and mix well.

Spread the mixture into the pan. Chill in the refrigerator until firm, about 1 hour. Cut into 16 pieces to serve. Keep chilled until ready to eat.

(Each piece is 2 pts.)
