Crouching Marmot Bars

These are very similar to the Monkey Cereal Bars I made earlier (not my recipe), I just changed some of the ingredients and proportions. And the name. So here's my version:


1 c. chopped walnuts
3/4 c. flaked coconut
1/4 c. butter
1 10 oz. bag of marshmallows
2 1/2 c. Kix cereal
2 1/2 c. Cocoa Puffs cereal
2 c. crushed dried banana chips


1. Heat oven to 350 f. spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. On ungreased cookie sheet with sides, bake walnuts at 350 f for 5 minutes.
2. Remove cookie sheet from oven. Stir coconut into walnuts. Return to oven; bake another 6 minutes or so, stirring twice during baking, until coconut is light golden brown. Set aside to cool.
3. In 4-quart saucepan or Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat. Add marshmallows. Stir constantly until melted. Remove from heat.
4. Stir in cereal, banana chips, toasted walnuts and coconut until evenly coated; pour into sprayed pan. Spray large piece of wax paper with cooking spray, then apply side with spray to mixture to flatten out into pan. Cool 30 minutes. Cut into bars.

*note: To easily crush banana chips, place in large ziploc bag and use rolling pin to roll over chips several times.
