Description

If you like the SALTY & SWEET combo…try these! For some reason this is a hit with the men. At a potluck they usually grab for these instead of a chocolate brownie.

Ingredients

  • 1 box Yellow Cake Mix
  • ¾ cups Butter Or Margarine, Melted, Divided In Recipe
  • 1 whole Large Egg
  • 3 cups Mini Marshmallows
  • 1 package 12 Oz Butterscotch (or Peanut Butter) Chips
  • ½ cups Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 cups Peanuts, Salted
  • 2 cups Rice Krispies Cereal

Preparation

Combine cake mix, 1/4 cup of the melted butter and egg in a bowl. It will be a little lumpy & dry, this is okay. Press into a 9 x 13 in pan.Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes (until very LIGHTLY browned).

Sprinkle mini marshmallows evenly over baked cake layer. Return to oven for about 3-4 minutes (watch carefully).

While marshmallows are melting in oven: In a medium sized sauce pan, melt butterscotch chips, corn syrup, 1/2 cup of the butter & vanilla over low heat. After all is melted, add the peanuts then the Rice Krispies and mix together.

Immediately spread or drop large spoonfuls onto marshmallows.

Chill pan briefly and cut into bars. You can chill for a few hours if you prefer, only problem is it’s hard to cut.

Cut into smaller bars because these are Rich!

Made these for a picnic and they were well received. Note to divide the butter (my cake mix had too much!). I used the peanut butter chips and lightly salted nuts, which my hubby thought were not salty enough.

I’ll definitely make these again. They truly do bring back memories of my small-town favorite Pearson’s Salted Nut Roll. Yum!

These are absolutely yummy! The kids loved making them with me! We tried them with butterscotch chips this time but will try peanut butter chips next time! Definitely a keeper! Thanks!

These were good, but found the cake base too crumbly for my liking.

I needed bars for a church function and these sounded great and OH BOY am I glad because they ARE Good!!
Easy to make-I wasn’t sure if I needed to grease the pan-I sprayed it lightly with PAM, and I didn’t know how the marshmallows should look-I went with puffy and soft, but not brown-and they turned out great and, it’s a little hard to “spread”the nut/krispy mixture-I more dolloped & smooshed :-), but there’s plenty to cover the marshmallows! I chilled them over night and dumped the pan on the counter and had no problem cutting them with a big sharp knife. And yes, they’re kind of tall so smaller than usual bars are definitely the way to go. Totally a keeper, sweet & salty, yum!
