Salted Peanut Chews

Do you like a Salted Nut Roll?  My hubby does!  Two co-teachers shared this recipe with me several years back.  If you like a Salted Nut Roll, you will love this bar recipe.

Salted Peanut Chews


1 box yellow cake mix
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 egg
3cups miniature marshmallows


2/3 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup butter
2 tsp vanilla
1 (10 oz) bag peanut butter chips
2 cups crisp rice cereal
2 cups salted peanuts

Preheat oven to 350.  In a large bowl, combine cake mix, 1/3 cup butter and egg - beat at low speed.  Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13 pan.  Bake for 12 to 18 minutes or until light brown.  Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with marshmallows - lightly pressing into crust.  Return to oven and bake 1-2 minutes or just until marshmallows begin to puff.  Cool while preparing topping.

In a saucepan, combine all topping ingredients except cereal and peanuts.  Heat just until chips are melted - stirring until smooth.  Remove from heat and pour over cereal and peanuts.  Immediately spoon warm topping over marshmallows - spread to cover.  Refrigerate one hour or until firm.  Cut into bars and store in an airtight container!
