Updated Nov 14, 2008

Ingredients

Cookie Base

Topping

  • 1 bag (10 oz) miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
  • 1 bag (10 oz) peanut butter chips (1 2/3 cups)
  • 2 cups dry-roasted or honey-roasted peanuts

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. In large bowl, stir all cookie base ingredients except peanuts until soft dough forms. Press dough in bottom of pan. Sprinkle evenly with 2 cups peanuts; press lightly into dough. Bake 12 to 15 minutes until light golden brown. Cool 30 minutes.
  • 2
    In 3-quart saucepan, heat marshmallows and butter over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until melted. Stir in peanut butter, milk and peanut butter chips until smooth.
  • 3
    Immediately pour marshmallow mixture over cookie base; spread evenly. Sprinkle evenly with 2 cups peanuts; press gently into marshmallow mixture. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm. For bars, cut into 10 rows by 6 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Skip the cooking spray, and instead line the pan with quick-release foil for easy cleanup and removal of bars from the pan.
  • tip 2
    Serve bars in mini paper or metallic cups for a dessert buffet.
