Deeeeeeelicious. I didn't have any almonds on hand, so I subbed in more pecans. I also used mini marshmallows. The bag of Jet Puffed that I had gave different large-to-mini substitution instructions. 13 mini = 1 large, 1/2 c mini = approx. 40 mini. So if 80 minis were in one cup, that would be approx. 6 large marshmallows (80/13=6.15). So 60 large marshmallows would equal approx. 10 cups of the minis (60/6=10). Of course, that may only apply to this particular brand. I used 11 cups because I like things like this a little extra marshmallow-y. :) Love the coconut! They are so good. Thank you so much for sharing! Can you believe I was looking for recipes to use up cornflakes and marshmallows? Perfect!

Julie-Ann,This is a great treat,I loved how crispy they are.The only thing I did different was I didn\'t use the coconut as I didn\'t have any,so I used an extra 1/2 cup of corn flakes to make up for it.These are yummy,Thanks,Darlene Summers

I had no problem with crushed cornflakes, and made as directed, using sliced almonds and very coarsely chopped pecans. All adults loved this - kids didn't go for for some reason. I think they're delicious!

Julie ann....this is a very fast and easy recipe...the only thing I changed after reading the above review was I added five extra mallows..I used brazil sliced nuts, pecans and almonds, to make up for the right measurements... This come out perfect, and I didn't crush the cornflakes, what so ever.. Thanks for this recipe.....

Nice and crisp, compared to Rice Krispy Squares, which is a bit more chewy. I found it more difficult to combine and the corn flakes broke easily into small pieces. Perhaps it's meant to!
