  1. Question and Answer
    While organizing the cupboard I came across a bag of partially stale marshmallows that got pushed to the back. I only use them to make rice krispie treats. Would they still be OK to use? (ie would the melt the same?) What other recipes/uses are there for stale marshmallows?

    Does your family accumulate near-empty bags of stale chips? I hate when that happens, and it nearly kills me to throw them out. Two recipes that call for crushed chips (stale chips work just great). I have a feeling you're going to love these chicken strips and cookies. Just in case you...
