Thank you for sharing this recipe! This is the one I made with my English teacher who was from Hawaii and I have been trying to find the recipe for!! I tried some other energy bar recipe because this is the best! Now I have printed it out so I can make anytime. They are gone so quickly when I make them. Only down side is to clean up the bowl with sticky melted marshmallows. Lol

Very good! Used a 7 1/4 x 11 pan for thicker bars, also easier to flatten evenly.
