    I was out of mini marshmallows, but marshmallow creme worked fine. I also discovered if we are out of brown sugar, maple syrup works well.

    Too liquidy. It needed to be baked longer. I also added ground cinnamon on top as well.

    Yummy! I added a chopped pear, 1/2 an apple, chopped walnuts and dried cranberries with 1 tsp of all spice powder. It turned out delicious and decorative.
