Hi teachermrw, yes you could use an 8 x 8 pan. The treats will be a bit less thick/tall. Enjoy!

Hello, just wondering if you used big or small marshmallows? We have small ones on hand & about how many small ones do we use? Thanks.

Hi, I used large marshmallows. For small marshmallows, it would be about 2 3/4 cups. Let me know how they turn out for you. Thanks for your question!
