Makes: 36 pieces


For the crust:
1 (15.25-ounce) box yellow cake mix
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 egg
3 cups mini marshmallows

For the topping:
2/3 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups peanut butter chips
2 cups rice crispies
2 cups salted peanuts


Heat oven to 350 F. Using an electric mixer, combine cake mix, butter and egg on low until crumbly. Press into bottom of an ungreased 9-inch-by-12-inch pan. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until light brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle with marshmallows. Return to oven for 1 to 2 minutes or until marshmallows are puffy. Cool. In a large pot over medium-low, heat corn syrup, butter, vanilla and peanut butter chips until chips are melted and smooth, stirring constantly. Remove from stove, then stir in cereal and peanuts. Spoon and spread over marshmallows. Cool before serving.
