Robyn Bulloch


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 cups miniature marshmallows
1 10 oz. pkg peanut butter chips
2/3 cups corn syrup
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups rice crispy cereal
2 cups salted peanuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, the 1/2 cup softened butter, the egg yolks, the teaspoon vanilla, the baking powder, the baking soda and salt. Beat the mixture with an electric mixer on low until crumbly.

minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven,

Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the chips are melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in rice crispy cereal and peanuts. Spread over marshmallows. Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours until firm. Cut and store in a covered container.
