Robin McGraw's Family Snack: Recipe Review

Okay, here's another helpful(?) recipe review for you and me (so that I remember what I did/would do differently).

Robin McGraw's Family Snack
original recipe here
4 C large marshmallows
1 C nut butter (I used JIF peanut butter)
5 C puffed rice cereal
1/2 C dried cranberries
1/3 C chopped pecans, toasted
1/3 C chopped cashews, toasted

Chop and toast the nuts, set aside. Add nut butter and marshmallows to a large microwaveable blowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute, stir. Microwave for another minute, and stir. Add all other ingredients and stir to combine. Pour into a foil-lined, greased 9x13 baking pan. Press evenly into the pan. Let the bars set up, about 30 minutes.

Okay, so I increased the amount of marshmallows and nut butter, and decreased the amount of cereal and nuts. I used regular peanut butter, but when I make it again I will try the natural peanut butter - I think that the recipe needs the more liquid consistency it would have.

We thought the flavor was great, but wished that the bars were "gooey-er". (Is that a word?) Pretty tasty!

***Update: My cousin tested this one out with my adjusted measurements. She suggested using even less of the rice cereal, and putting it in a 9x9 inch pan.***

So did Andrew like them? I was thinking of trying this one with Ashlyn. Thanks for your inspiration. I have loved cooking with Ashlyn more lately. It also keeps her from bugging Madelyn when I keep her more involved! You're a genius. What are your Cinco de Mayo plans?!?! Please post so I can copy!! Love you!
