I made three batches of this. I suggest adding one cup of Trix to the mix. There is enough syrup that it mixes easily all the way through the process. 8 cups fit fine in my standard large size mixing bowl.Bake in a 9x13 pan or on two baking sheets with sides. The syrup still bubbles and is fairly liquid through to the end. I had to clean my oven after the first batch overflowed a bit.Cool on parchment paper.
