Salted Peanut Chews


My daughter makes this recipe quite often.  I finally asked for the recipe.  She said she found the recipe on the back of a cake mix box. 

BASE:

  • 1 packaged yellow cake mix
  • 1/3 cup of butter or margarine (softened)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows

TOPPING:

  • 2/3 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 10 ounce bag of peanut butter chips
  • 2 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 2 cups salted peanuts

Have oven preheated to 350 degrees.

  1. Combine cake mix, 1/3 cup butter or margarine and egg.  Beat at low speed until crumbly.  Bake for 12 – 18 minutes until light golden brown.
  2. Remove from oven, sprinkle with marshmallows.  Return to oven for a minute or two till marshmallows puff.  Let cool while preparing topping.
  3. In large saucepan combine all topping ingredients except cereal and peanuts.  Heat until chips are melted and mixture is smooth, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat, stir in cereal and peanuts.  Immediately spoon warm topping over the marshmallows, spreading to cover.  Refrigerate 1 hour until firm.  Makes 48 bars

  1. We don’t have yellow cake mix here or corn syrup, We probably do have these ingredients over here in New Zealand but probably use a different name.. I was thinking maybe the corn syrup is golden syrup over here, but who knows… Have a lovely Weekend Beth Marie…
