Deluxe chocolate marshmallow bars

Today was our last day of co-op for the school year (yes, we are about done schooling! Only a few more days to log, woohoo!! Bring on summer break!)  Anyway, I like to be the fun teacher who does something to celebrate the last day of class. So for my A&P class I made a treat which also doubled as the same treat I brought for my cooking class recipe exchange. And here is that recipe and picture I took to share with you all!

Deluxe Chocolate Marshmallow Bars

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1-1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups crisp rice cereal
-In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.

  • Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in nuts if desired. Spread in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan.
  • Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes. Sprinkle with marshmallows; bake 2-3 minutes longer. Remove to a wire rack. Using a knife dipped in water, spread the melted marshmallows evenly over top. Cool completely.
  • For topping, combine the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter in a small saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat until blended. Remove from the heat; stir in cereal. Spread over bars immediately. Chill.

"Couples who genuinely love each other will experience times of closeness, apathy, irritation, and crankiness. That’s just the way emotions operate. But the source of constancy of their love is a commitment of the will.”
