Pull out the stretchy pants, these are delectable! This was my Grammy’s recipe. I don’t make these often and when I made them last week I remembered why. I ate the entire pan by myself in 2 days! Pants are definitely fitting a bit tighter this week. Worth it!
Start by creaming together:
* 3/4 cup butter
* 1 1/2 cups sugar
* 3 eggs
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
Once that is nice and smooth, set that aside for a bit. Mix together:
* 1 1/3 cups flour
* 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 3 Tablespoons baking cocoa
* 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional, I don’t do this)
Mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Spread in a greased 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes.
Once the cake/cookie like mixture is done, sprinkle 4 cups of mini marshmallows evenly over the cake. Return it to the oven for 2-3 minutes; until the marshmallows are melted.
For the topping:
* 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
* 3 Tablespoons butter
* 1 cup peanut butter
* 1 cup rice krispies (optional, I use sometimes, but is also good without)
Combine chocolate chips, butter and peanut butter in a sauce pan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until melted. Add rice krispies. Spread over the bars. Then refrigerate until the chocolate mixture hardens. Then enjoy in your stretchy pants because you will more than likely eat the whole pan.
