This recipe does take some time to prepare, not alot but more than the mix up your cookies and throw them into a pan recipe. But they are worth making and waiting in between the layers. Each layer adds a nice texture to the cookie bar and tastes wonderful.
You will need the following:
- 1/2 c butter or margarine
- 3/4 c sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 c flour
- 1/2 c chopped pecans
- 2 T cocoa
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3 cups mini marshmallows–1 small bag
- 1 c chocolate chips
- 1 c peanut butter
- 1/2 pkg of rice krispy cereal
In a mixing bowl mix the following until blended: margarine, sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour, cocoa, salt, and pecans.
I like these to be a thinner flatter bar so we put ours on a jelly roll cookie sheet. Spread out evenly on pan.
Bake in 350 for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle the marshmallows across the top evenly. Return to the oven and bake for about 3 minutes more.I have actually let these cook a little longer and they get “toasted” on their tops, it makes the cookie bar taste more like a smore. Take these out and let them cool. They are just going to “puff” up a bit.While that is cooling you can mix up your top later. In a small saucepan melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter. Add your rice krispy cereal to the chocolate peanut butter mixture or vice versa:)
Mix it around real good…..Carefully spread the cereal mixture on top of your cooled marshmallow bars.Spread it out evenly to coat it. I then place mine in the refrigerator to set up quickly.Cut them into bars and place on a serving platter or keep in a tightly sealed container.
