Chocolate and PB Delights

{Recipe & Pic from} Good Eats N' Sweet Treats

3/4 cup butter

1-1/2 cups sugar

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1-1/3 cups all purpose flour

3 tbsp baking cocoa

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional (I omitted these)

4 cups miniature marshmallows


1-1/3 cup chocolate chips

1 cup peanut butter

3 tbsp butter

2 cups crisp rice cereal

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.

Add eggs and vanilla; beat until fluffy. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture. Stir in nuts if desired. Spread in a greased 15 x 10 x 1" pan. (I used a 13x9" pan)

Bake at 350F for 15-18 minutes. Sprinkle marshmallows evenly over cake; return to oven for 2-3 minutes. Using a knife dipped in water, spread the melted marshmallows evenly over cake. Cool. (I did not have to spread the marshmallow layer because I used a 13x9" pan, so the 4 cups of marshmallows amounted to an even, single layer of marshmallows)For topping, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and well blended. Remove from heat; stir in cereal. Immediately spread over bars. Chill.

Yield: 3 dozen
