Easy Salted Peanut Chews

Sometimes I'm shocked, just shocked when I search our blog for a recipe that I think I posted and can't find it.  I can't believe that I didn't post this before.  I've made it so many time and it always, always gets a good response.  Try it.  Promise, you'll get raves.

Easy Salted Peanut Chews


1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon water
1 egg
3 cups miniature marshmallows
2/3 cups light corn syrup
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 bag (10 oz) peanut butter chips
2 cups crisp rice cereal
2 cups salted peanuts


Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray bottom of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.

In large bowl, stir cookie mix, oil, water and egg until soft dough forms. Press dough in pan using floured fingers.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until set. Immediately sprinkle marshmallows over crust; bake 1 to 2 minutes longer or until marshmallows begin being to puff.

In a 4 quart saucepan, cook corn syrup, butter, vanilla and chips over low heat, stirring constantly until chips are melted. Remove from heat; stir in cereal and nuts. Immediately spoon cereal mixture evenly over the marshmallows. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm. For bars, cut into 9 rows by 4 rows.

BC Recommendations:  For a different flavor, try milk chocolate or semisweet chocolate chips for the peanut butter chips.
