Easy and Dangerous Peanut Bars

Easy and dangerous? I used to date a guy like that. Bah-dum ching! Moving on...

My mother has been making these peanut bars for years. They are always a hit. I had a super fun jewelry party earlier in the month, and I knew these bars would be perfect for this occasion.

Peanut Bars
  • 1pkg. Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (I used fat free)
  • 1 jar lightly salted peanuts
  • 1 bag mini-marshmallows
  1. Grease 9x13 baking dish with shortening (bottom and sides).
  2. Evenly spread half of the peanuts in to the bottom on the dish.
  3. Melt the pb chips and the sc milk in the microwave and mix.
  4. Add bag of mallows to melted chips and mix.
  5. Spread mallow mixture over peanuts in the baking dish.
  6. Top with remaining peanuts (you'll probably have to push them down into the mallow mix).
  7. Chill in refrigerator and cut into small pieces; these things are decadent!
And it's as easy as that. As I said, these are daaaaaaaaaangerouuuuuuuuuuus. You won't be able to stop yourself from eating more and more, which is why it's a good idea to cut them small. They went over well and since my dad was visiting that weekend, even though it makes a lot, they were gone quick. These bars are not cheap to make, but if you need something that's like my current beau—fast and simple (Ha! Just kidding, baby. Loooooooooooove yooooooou.), it's a great option.

  1. What do you mean, "they were gone quick"????? Shouldn't it be "they were gone quickly"???
