"These are great fun! I bought a big bag of chow mein noodles and had to search the web to find out how much 3 oz is. Well.....3 oz is 2 cups! You're welcome. :)"

"I am looking for a recipe similar to this, but no marshmallows and they were made with corn flakes! Lost my recipe, can anyone help? Thanks!"

"Since I have made this a number of times I have varied the ingredients. Our favorite is a mix of butterschotch and chocolate chips. It is also worth noting that this works EQUALLY well with Fiber One cereal. Instead of noodles use 2 cups of cereal. This is a great way to use up leftover cereal and a great source of fiber!"
