      Made these last night for a weekend party, and they were very easy to make. You need a bigger dish than I used, probably a 9x13 - mine ended up thicker than I would have liked, and I used a second smaller pan when I realized that this was going to be a lot of marshmallows. I used aluminum foil with nonstick spray in my pan, which reduced cleanup, but the beaters and bowl clean up really easily, even if you forget and leave the whisk on the mixer overnight! Vanilla flavor very pronounced, so use good stuff. I think these will be a hit.
