I did add half of a small bag of "fruit" marshmallows that I had hanging out in the pantry that I needed to use or lose. I made no other changes. The kids RAVED about it and my husband ate about half of this bowl on his own. Great "pantry" dessert. Read More

It was great! I added coconut flakes and next time I will not do that. The coconut flakes throw off the whole dish. You will be eating it and then get a coconut flake and it just doesn't fit well with the dish. Other than that I had no problems with it! Read More
