Ingredients

  • 1 bag marshmallows
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 1 Cup dried fruit
  • 1/2 Cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 Cup chocolate chips
  • 4 Cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1/4 Cup shredded coconut

Directions

In a sauce pan over medium-heat, melt the butter and the marshmallows together. Remove from the heat and add the fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, and cereal and mix well. Using the extra butter, coat a 9-by-9 inch pan. Place the marshmallow mixture into the pan and smooth it out so that it reaches all of the edges. Sprinkle the coconut on top and press down to compress. Let cool and serve.
 

Marshmallow Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Marshmallow Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
