This is a recipe that my DH grew up loving, and I grew to love them. I got the recipe from a good friend of their family. They are easy to make and are yummy to eat. I'm not sure were the name "froggies" came from as their real name is New York Delight. Cook time also requires 1 hour cooling time.
- 2 eggs
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1⁄2 cup coconut
- 24 large marshmallows
- 2 cups graham wafer crumbs
- finely crushed corn flake crumbs
- In a medium saucepan, beat eggs, add sugar, margarine and coconut; cook for 1 minute.
- Add marshmallows, and stir until dissolved.
- Add graham wafer crumbs and mix well.
- Press into lightly greased 8x8 square pan.
- Chill in fridge until completely cool, approximately 1 hour.
- Cut into bars and roll into crushed corn flakes.The easiest way to get the crumbs finely crushed is to put them in the blender for a few seconds, this makes it easier to roll them.
YUMMY ALERT! These are great! I'm not all that wild about cornflakes, so I did a few with cornflakes first. Then I played around, doing some in coconut, some in oreo crumbs, some in a bit of cocoa mixed with the coconut and finally some "mongrel" ones done in all the leftover coatings mixed. I cut 25 squares because that seemed about the right size to me. I did find that they have to be cold to work with, otherwise they are just too sticky. Also, I found that pressing slowly and firmly with the knife worked best. Usually I had to reshape them a bit after I got them out of the pan too. This is a wonderful treat, so easy but looks like I slaved for hours! Thanks, Melanie.
O.k. I made these a while ago and I never reviewed them so here goes. They were VERY good. Next time, though, I'll make sure to grind the cornflakes in my blender as they weren't fine enough.
These are really different. I made WAY more than 16 bars. I followed the recipe to a T; I think I was expecting something more firm, but even after 2 hours they were pretty soft, so cutting them into bars was out of the question. I made something that looked more like large 'tidbits'. I'm not sure if they were supposed to be soft, but they sure were good anyways.
