I have made these Kool-Aid treats a couple times. The first time I used the Cherry Kool-Aid, and the second time I used a Strawberry Kool-Aid, and I think I much preferred these bars made with the Cherry Kool-Aid. Since the ounces for the bag of marshmallows to use in this recipe wasn't precise/posted, I'm pretty sure a large bag of mini marshmallows are 16 ounces, as that's what I remember they use to be. I weighed and measured out the marshmallows, and ended up using about 7-1/4 cups, or you can use 1-(10 oz.) bag, plus half of another (10 oz. bag). These bars are rather large in size (thick-wise), so you may want to cut them a bit smaller, which would give you more than 12 servings. JoSele, these bars were very good, and I certainly would recommend this recipe for others to try. I've already "pinched", nominated, taste tested and approved this recipe!
