What Should You Bring to the Party?

By Momma Chef

On no! You forgot that you have to bring a dessert to… (insert: the holiday banquet, PTA meeting, your friend’s house, etc.). This recipe is for all those times you are panicking and think you have nothing to make. Instead of running out for a bag of store-bought cookies, try this recipe. Chances are that everything you need is already in your pantry. It is so easy to prepare and really one of the best last-minute desserts ever, with marshmallows and raisins blending perfectly with semi-sweet chocolate. It’s a great recipe to make with the kids, too. (P.S. You’ll want to make an extra batch for home.)

• 1 cup (8 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
• 1 cup mini marshmallows
