Koo-Koo for Coconut!

Hello Loopy Ewes! Here's the recipe for the sweets I made the other night:

Coconut-Pecan Cereal Bars
(from Everyday Food magazine, July/August 2007)

1 package (7 oz) sweetened shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups pecan halves
nonstick cooking spray
1 package (10 oz) marshmallows
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 cups cornflakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread coconut on one side of a large rimmed baking sheet, and pecans on the other side, keeping them separate. Toast until fragrant, 15 to 20 minutes, tossing occasionally.

Meanwhile, coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray; line with a strip of waxed paper (leaving an overhang on two sides). Spray paper.

In a large nonstick pot over medium-low, heat marshmallows and butter until melted, 5 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

Stir in cornflakes, coconut, and pecans. Transfer to a prepared pan; press in firmly with a metal spatula (coated with cooking spray to prevent sticking). Cool until firm, about 2 hours. Remove from pan; peel off paper. Using a serrated knife, cut into squares. Makes 16

I hope everyone has a nice weekend! Dawn, Judi and Dawnelle all are game so far for meeting on Tuesday instead of Thursday. (Thanks ladies!) I'll see you all then!
