  • 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 prepared pan; press in firmly with a metal spatula (coated with spray to prevent sticking). Cool until firm, about 2 hours. Remove from pan; peel off paper. Using a serrated knife, cut into squares.

I didn't add the marshmallows because i think it doesn't need them. I love my Corn Flake Tart. I added a couple of tablespoons of #GoldenEagleSyrup Americas gplden syrup

This is complicated. I'm looking for something simple, for example, cereal with chicken wings and Parmesan.

My husband and I loved these! I made them for my husband since I had all of the ingredients on hand. I don't normally like the coconut but the pecans really steal the show in this tasty treat! Yum!

I love this recipe! I made this for my boyfriend to take to work for a snack for the week and I ended up eating most of the pan. I don't think I normally would have made this but I had all the ingredients and wanted to try something new. Not having to bake was also a plus. They a gooey and crunchy and the taste or the roasted pecans are wonderful.

Get over yourselves ladies! I mean really....grow up. Did you strain yourselves by turning on the oven to toast the coconut. Really.....you sound like the elementary kids I teach.

ChaseSkye, these ARE NO BAKE.You are not baking the cookie bars, you are just toasting the coconut and pecans to enhance their flavor and as a bonus, your kitchen has a delightful aroma. Many NO BAKE recipes may have one or two items toasted or in this case also marshmellows are "cooked" with the butter. It is rare to not have some amount of "cooking" in a recipe, just don't take the name of the recipe too literally.......Mykele

How are these "no-bake" when the first thing one sees when reading the directions on preparing them is "preheat the oven to 350 degrees"????? And proceeds to tell you it needs to stay on for 15-20 minutes. NO BAKE means no oven to me. Sorry - they may be delicious. But they are NOT "no bake"! (False advertising, Martha!)

Made these yesterday for dessert and they turned out great! I added 1/3 cup of chocolate chips for extra flavour.

Again, nutritional info can be researched in various books and in online sites. You are making and eating cookies....a basically sweet treat to be enjoyed but not 24/7.....a cookie or two does not affect the normal diet. Those on special diets know enough to make or buy sweets that they can enjoy. MS offers these recipes for free so just enjoy and quit asking for nutritional add-ons.

I don't see why you couldn't make Martha's vanilla marshmallows ( see recipe) and use Splenda or some other sugar substitute for the sugar. They would still have corn syrup but they would be lower in carbs. You might check with a health food store, but the ones I found at Akin's were expensive. I think you would need about one third recipe.

For diabetics who have to avoid sugar, are there sugar free marshmellows or anything else that can be substituted for the marshmellow to hold it together?

Sure you could. Just skip the toasting of the pecans in step 1.

I can't open the current comments, so forgive me if this has been addressed: Could I use roasted pecans from the store? Salted?
