I made this recipe in quantities very close to Hal I below. I used 2 cups of Campside brand mini-marshmallows, 3 cups Kelloggs cornflakes and 2 1/4 tbsp Imperial margarine. I did not use any vanilla, but I did add a handful of Smarties. Not sure that there are Smarties in the US or not. They are similar to M & M's. You do have to work fast when mixing in the cornflakes and any other ingredients. Result: one gooey but yummy treat. The next time I make these, I will try adding dried cherries or apricots.
Very easy to make! I loved it even my picky brother loved it.only had half ingredients and made 6. 2 cups mini marshmallows 1 3/4 tbsp butter 1 tsp vanilla extract 3 cups cornflakes Didn't have square pab around I used my hands to form the sticky mixture into balls.Fyi quick tip, wetting your hands before grabbing or touching the mixture helps the cereal from sticking to your hands
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!
