Salted Nut Chews


This cookie bar tastes a lot like a Payday Candy Bar. Lyn Hutchings gave me this recipe many years ago when I taught her three children in first grade.
Bottom Crust:
1 dry yellow cake mix
1/3 c. butter, softened
1 egg
3 c. mini marshmallows
Mix cake mix, butter and egg together until crumbly. Press into a large greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350°for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with marshmallows and return to oven 2-3 minutes or until marshmallows just begin to puff. Cool
Topping:
2/3 c. karo syrup
1/4 c. butter
2 t. vanilla
12 ounces peanut butter chips
2 c. rice krispies
2 c. peanuts
Heat karo syrup, butter, vanilla and chips in microwave until melted and smooth, stirring after each 30 seconds. Stir in cereal and peanuts. Spoon over marshmallows and spread to cover. Chill and cut.

These were great! I think my kids ate about half of that container of them that you brought up to Kolob last weekend. I might just have to give these a try for our camping trip this weekend. :) Thanks Peggy!
