Sweet and Salty Bars

I was given this recipe from some of my teammates on my co-ed softball team, Team Husky Pants. Steve absolutely loves these and were a hit at our annual Opening Day party this past March.

Bottom Layer
1 package yellow cake mix
1/3 cup margarine
1 egg

Combine the above ingredients until crumbly and press into a 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-18 minutes, or until golden brown.

Middle Layer
3 cups miniature marshmallows

After taking the bottom layer out of the oven, immediately pour the marshmallows on top. Bake for 1-2 minutes, or until fluffy. Take out and allow to cool for a few minutes.

Top Layer
While the marshmallows are baking and cooling...

In a sauce pan, heat:
2/3 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup margarine
2 teaspoons of vanilla
10 oz. package of peanut butter chips

Stir the above ingredients until melted. Remove from heat.

Stir in:
2 cups Rice Krispies
2 cups salted peanuts

Immediately spoon this mixture over the marshmallow layer...try to spread as best you can over the dish.

Chill to firm. For best results, allow to firm over night in the fridge. I recommend letting it sit out for a bit after taking it out of the fridge so it is easier to cut. Cutting it is the hardest part!
