Salted Nut Roll Bars

Sometimes I add the peanuts and sometimes I don't. Either way, they are very good!





Printable Recipe

Crust
1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking pwd
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Middle  
3 cups mini marshmallows

Topping   
1/4 cup butter
12 oz pkg peanut butter chips
2/3 cup corn syrup
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups Rice Krispies
2 cups salted peanuts

Cream the butter and brown sugar. Add the egg yolks and vanilla and beat well. Stir in the flour, baking pwd, soda and salt. Press into a greased 9 x 13" pan and bake 350 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle on the mini marshmallows. Return to the oven for 2 minutes, and then remove and spread the marshmallows over the crust. Cool slightly.

In a saucepan, combine the butter, peanut butter chips, and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat, until butter and peanut butter chips are melted and mixture has come to a boil. Stir constantly. When mixture has come to a boil, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and mix well. Stir in the Rice Krispies and peanuts until evenly combined. Using a fork or spoon, carefully spread over the marshmallow layer. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
