a recipe:: Salted Peanut Chews

I made these treats this week to bring for our Wednesday morning bible study. This recipe came from my Mom who made these often while I was growing up. They taste like salted peanut rolls and are so good!!


1 1/2 cup flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 egg yolks
3 cups mini marshmallows  

2/3 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
12 ounce package peanut butter chips
2 cups rice krispies cereal
2 cups salted peanuts

Combine all of the crust ingredients except for the marshmallows, until crumb mixture forms. Press into bottom of an ungreased 13x9 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Immediately sprinkle with marshmallows and bake for an additional 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows begin to puff.
Cool completely.
Meanwhile, in saucepan heat the corn syrup, butter, vanilla, peanut butter chips until smooth. Stir in cereal and peanuts. Spoon topping over marshmallow layer and spread to cover. Chill and cut into bars. After bars have been cut, store at room temperature.
