I've made this recipe and have found that using "Rice Chow Mein Noodles" crushed up are so much easier to work with. They are like the chow mein noodle but much thinner and easier to press into the muffin tins

We didn't use the marshmallow or butter at all and used more of the almond bark. It worked well. Also, we used Fiber One cereal which already looks kind of "twiggy" and a nice way to sneak some fiber in!
