Caramel Marshmallow Bars

Calling all chocolate lovers. . .

and peanut lovers. . .

marshmallow lovers too. . .

and oh yes, caramel lovers.

Maybe I should just say
calling all sweet treat lovers!

I definitely fit into that category :)
Have I got a tasty dessert for you and it's loaded with lots of sweet goodness.




Here is the recipe, my friends.

Crumb mixture:

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts

Filling:
3/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
1/2 cup salted peanuts
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips




Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
For crumb mixture, in a small mixing bowl combine flour,
graham cracker crumbs, sugar, butter and salt.
Beat at low speed, scraping the bowl often, until mixture is crumbly,
about 1 to 2 minutes. 
Stir in nuts .
Reserve 3/4 cup crumb mixture.
Press remaining mixture on the bottom of a greased and floured
9-inch square baking pan.
Bake 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

For filling, spread caramel topping evenly over hot crust.
Sprinkle nuts, marshmallows and chocolate chips over top.
Crumble 3/4 cup reserved crumb mixture over top.
Continue baking 10 - 12 minutes
or until marshmallows just start to brown.
Cool on a rack for about 30 minutes.
Cover and refrigerate 1 - 2 hours or until firm.
Cut into bars and enjoy.
Makes about 30 bars
{if you cut them small}.



Ooey, gooey, sweet goodness. . .it doesn't get much better than that :)

Have a beautiful weekend, sweet friends.
Sending love and hugs your way!

Dear Stephanie,

This looks SO delicious! So wintry. Your photos are wonderfully beautiful. I will have to try this recipe. Oh so many good things to eat! Aren't we blessed?

OMG, these look divine! We live in the UK and have never had the pleasure of enjoying a Graham's Cracker (I've heard of them in so many recipes) - how would you describe them, so I can then find a similar biscuit over here.?

Conniecrafter said...

Oh that does sound good but I am trying to get back on my eating plan so this would not be good for me right now. We ate out too much on our trip and ever since we got back we haven't been sticking with it good so the weight is not going off, so sad when all that hard work can just go like that and so hard to get it back off again.

Daniela said...

Here I am !
What a wonderful cake it seems to be, I'm already taking note, without loosing much time !
Thank you my wonderful Stephanie, everything coming from you sounds such a blessing {{smiles}} !

Have a Beautiful evening and start of the new week ahead,
wholeheartedly
Dany
