"Great recipe, even better than crispy rice squares!!! These have marshmallows, coconut, almonds and cornflake cereal. Very tasty, very easy"

sliced almonds, toasted
3 1/2 cups
Added chocolate chips for the chocolate lovers in the house and some vanilla! Reducced butter to 1/4 cup as suggested by another review. Yummy and very crunchy! Super easy and a fast treat to make in a hurry!
These were pretty good...I thought the butter would be alot so I used 1/4 a cup. I only had the miniature marshmallows so I kind of guessed how many to use. My kids enjoyed them and I couldnt stop eating them!
This is great stuff!! Made mine without the almonds and I think it still tasted wonderful.
These are so good. If you want something a bit different than rice crispies then you have got to try these.
Thank you for such a great treat.
Okay- after reading review after review, I would have to say that these are pretty good, I did the 1/4 c butter and added Vanilla- but did anyone notice that they did not really say when to add the COCONUT- which in my opinion is a big part in this recipe, so I added it when the marshmallow was melted- speaking of which- I only had on hand miniature marshmallows so I just did a 4 to 1 ratio- and I think next time I will do 6 to 1. I didn't have sliced almonds so I didnt use them. I used a square pan and they still seem pretty thin- no way will this fit on 9X13 or you will get a one cornflake layer. I did half plain and put it in the pan- then I added chocolate chips and put the remainder in the pan because my young son will not eat chocolate- strange but true. ENJOY!
A very nice tasting recipe. A little soggy even though I added extra cornflakes and cut the butter back to 1/4 cup. I threw in a handful of chopped marashino cherries that I had blotted dry and then finely diced.It looked very festive and tasted great.
I agree that 3/4 c was too much butter, and wonder if it might have been a typo? I used 1/4 c like I use in the Rice Krispy treats, and it worked great. It would have been a mess and soggy if I'd used all of it. As for the rest of the recipe: Yummy! I loved the coconut. It's a nice break from the tradition Rice Krispy recipe. Good recipe!
