Marshmallow bits! You can find these at your grocery store either by all of the other marshmallows or by the ice cream toppings. You can also order them on Amazon. They’re so great in cookie and brownie recipes too.

At the very last minute before transferring, drizzle with a heaping tablespoon more honey and stir in your chocolate! I used dark chocolate chunks, but any chocolate chip works great.

Press Mixture Into Baking Dish and Refrigerate To Firm Up.
