I had made these delicious Nutty Marshmallow Bars way back in 1990, and everyone raved about them because they were soooo gooood! I was looking through old cook book last week, and I had come across this cookbook again and thought that you would like the opportunity to make them. The cookbook was “Betty Crocker – 110 More Cookie Recipes”, and there were so many other great cookies in this book that I have been making for years, such as Cinnamon-Coffee Bars, Coconut-Toffee Bars, Sour-Cream Banana Bars, Caramel Turtle Cookie…and so many others…thank you…thank you…thank you!!!
Here’s the recipe:
1 cup chopped salted blanched peanuts
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup quick-cooking or regular oats
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup margarine. softened
1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow creme
1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping
1 cup salted blanched peanuts
Heat oven to 350 F. Stir chopped peanuts, flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, salt and egg in a large bowl. Stir in margarine until mixture is crumbly.
Press in ungreased 13 x 9 inch pan. Bake 10 minutes. Spoon marshmallow creme over HOT layer. Let stand 1 minute; spread evenly. Drizzle topping over creme; sprinkle with 1 cup peanuts.
Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let stand until cool, then loosen edges from side of pan with WET KNIFE. Cut into 3 x 1 1/2 inch bars with wet knife.
