  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 quarts milk
  • 1 cup nuts
  • 1/2 pkg. mini marshmallows

Try this: Melt your almond bark, then stir in 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, quickly add nuts and marshmallows . Pour into a buttered square dish and let set. My sister and I make this mostly at Christmas. Quick and good.
