The Financial Times has said the Chartered Financial Analyst designation is considered the gold standard among financial professionals. I know two folks who endured Level 2 of the exam this past June. They put in grueling months of studying. After they took the exam in June they have to wait almost TWO months to find out if they passed (more torture). Today they found out their exam results and I made this sweet treat in honor of them… With a free hand fondant “A+” atop a white chocolate covered marshmallow. A tasty treat to celebrate a job well done. If you want to learn more about the CFA designation and exam click here. Pass or fail, a bite of this marshmallow treat will hit the spot.
