Hi - and Happy Holidays! The recipe is easy to prepare, and it looks so festive! They're also very good tasting. I also found that the topping didn't stick, but perhaps that could be fixed by dipping the marshmallows in water for 2 seconds - and then sprinkling on top of the baked cookie crust. They might then stick and get the candies to stick as well. I haven't tried that yet, but I will. (I wouldn't advise dipping the candies because the colors would run.) Thanks.

I made this recipe for my son's Christmas party at school. Of course we had to taste test them 1st. They were very sweet. I saw the comments about letting the marshmallows melt so the topping didn't come off. I let mine melt a little too much because the edges hard. So I just got the edges off. Otherwise a good easy recipe that kids will enjoy!

Good for kids. Had trouble getting my toppings to melt. Eventually used a knife to spread marshmellows over bars. I suggest refrigerating for 24 hours before serving.

These are pretty good. They are really easy to make & will be good to do when you are in a hurry. I plan to make them again to send to my daughter's classroom Christmas party. Kids seem to like them well & these give a variety to the same old chocolate chip or sugar cookies. I "toasted" the marshmallows but turning the oven to low broil after adding the marshmellows & candies.

Super easy recipe!! And a major hit!! I substituted chocolate/peanut butter chips for the chocolate candies & nuts. I also added Christmas sprinkles (red and green) to give the bars some holiday flair! I can't wait to try this with the chocolate cake mix! I'm considering drizzling some butterscotch topping on those!!

I read the comments about the topping not sticking, so I left the bars in the oven a little longer to let the marshmallows get really "melty." It worked!! My husband and daughter loved them! They are very easy to make also. I cut them with a pizza cutter sprayed with Pam so that the topping would not stick to it.

Easy recipe for busy Moms! The topping definitely came off. Looks like next time I will use a "frosting" before putting on the marshmellows and candy. How would this work with a jelly roll pan???

All my friends and co-workers love this recipe. Everytime I make it there's next to none left. This is a very addicting bar that's a crowd pleaser. Instead of regular candies I used minis. Then I also used chocolate chips but liked the minis better. And I found out marshmallows are low in fat! I cant wait to try with a chocolate cake mix!
