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.  2013-11-11_00075Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle the marshmallows across the top evenly.  Return to the oven and bake for about 3 minutes more.2013-11-11_00076I 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.2013-11-11_00077While that is cooling you can mix  up your top later.  In a small saucepan melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter. 2013-11-11_00080Add your rice krispy cereal to the chocolate peanut butter mixture or vice versa:)
