Easy Salted Peanut Chews

Reminds me of one of my favorite candy bars!


    • 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 cup 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°F. 

Spray the bottom of pan (13x9-inch) with cooking spray.

Stir cookie mix, oil, water and egg until soft dough forms in a large bowl

With floured fingers, press dough in pan using.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until set.

Sprinkle marshmallows over crust immediately.  Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer, until marshmallows begin to puff up.

Cook corn syrup, butter, vanilla and chips over low heat in 4-quart saucepan stirring constantly until chips are melted. 

Remove from heat; stir in cereal and nuts. Immediately spoon cereal mixture evenly over marshmallows. 

Refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm. 

For bars, cut into 9 rows by 4 rows.

Expert Tips from Betty Crocker

Skip the cooking spray and line pan with foil for quick cleanup and easy bar removal.

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