Deluxe Chocolate Marshmallow Bars

Tuesday, April 7, 2009

These chocolatey layered bars are unique with light brownie layered with marshmallows, then crispy chocolate, peanut buttery goodness. Serve these easy bars to your friends and they're sure to be impressed! Don't worry they're easy to cut and serve and not gooey at all, as you might expect with a marshmallow layer.

The ingredients:
3/4 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1-1/3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 Tbs. cocoa
1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional
4 cups miniature marshmallows

TOPPING:

1-1/3 cups chocolate chips
3 Tbs. butter
1 cup peanut butter
2 cups Rice Krispies

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until fluffy. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa; add to creamed mixture. Stir in nuts, if desired. Spread in a greased 15-in x 10-in. x 1-in. pan.

Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle marshmallows evenly over cake; bake 2-3 minutes longer. Using a knife dipped in water, spread melted marshmallows evenly over cake. Cool.

For the topping, combine the chocolate chips, butter, and peanut butter in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and well blended. Remove from heat; stir in Rice Krispies. Spread topping immediately over bars. Chill. Yields about 3 dozen.

Enjoy!

About This Blog

My name is Lara and while I'm definitely not a gourmet cook, I do love preparing tasty, healthy meals for my family. Finding new recipes to try and sharing the ones we've already fallen in love with is a passion I've had since college and the reason why I've started this blog! With five kids, I'm usually in a hurry, so you'll find most of these recipes kid friendly and simple to make.
