Peanut Mallow Bars

Want something delicious besides always brownies!!! This is the perfect recipe. Wonderful nutty flavor with a layer of gooey marshmallow.

1 package yellow cake mix

2 tablespoons water

1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened

1 egg

4 cups miniature marshmallows


1 package (10 ounces) peanut butter chips

2/3 cup light corn syrup

1/4 cup butter or margarine

2 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups Rice Krispies

2 cups salted peanuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In mixing bowl, beat the cake mix, water, butter and egg until blended (batter will be thick). Spread into a greased 9 X 13 inch pan. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with marshmallows. Bake 2 minutes longer. Place on a wire rack while preparing topping. In a large saucepan, combine the peanut butter chips, corn syrup and butter; cook and stir over medium-low heat until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla, cereal and peanuts. Spread over marshmallows. Cool completely. Cut with a sharp knife. Makes 2 1/2 dozen.
