Salted Peanut Chews

Filed under: Uncategorized — sunfloursweets @ 11:58 pm

This is the first recipe I have posted that is new to me.  I have a recipe very similar to this only in chocolate, and I honestly think I prefer the chocolate version better.  Once again, this recipe is simple and fairly inexpensive.  By cutting them into small square bars, you are able to feed a lot of people with this recipe.  My 9×13 pan was being used, so I opted to use a smaller 7×11 glass pan.  I would NOT recommend using a smaller pan; they become too thick to actually eat.  I think the best part is the marshmallows, so if you like- throw a few extra in! 


Salted Peanut Chews


  • 1 (18.25 oz) yellow cake mix
  • 1/3 c. margarine, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups miniaure marshmellows


  • 2/3 c. corn syrup
  • 1/4 c. margarine
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 1 (10 oz) package peanut butter chips
  • 2 c. crisp rice cereal
  • 2 c. peanuts

     Preheat oven to 350.  In large bowl, combine cake mix, 1/3 cup margarine and egg; beat at low speed until crumbly.  Press into bottom of ungreased 13×9 inch pan.

     Bake for 12-18 minutes or until light brown.  Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with marshmallows.  Return to oven; bake an additional 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows just begin to puff.  Cool while preparing topping.

     In a large saucepan, combine all topping ingredients except cereal and peanuts.  Heat just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat; stir in cereal and peanuts.  Immediately spoon over warm topping over marshmallows; spread to cover.  Refrigerate 1 hour until firm.  Cut into bars.  Makes 48 bars.
