Here's a change from the usual rice crispies bars, & of course, it includes raisins!

Had some leftover marshmallows and wanted to use them up rather than let them go stale. Decided a half batch of this dish would make a great treat for the kids in the family. My combination of fruit included dried cherries, cranberries and apricots which I chopped myself. I also added 1/4 cup chopped almonds and used almond extract to echo that flavor. The bars have not yet been served but my nibble from the spoon -- you know the bits that stick -- were delightful.
