I wanted a recipe where I could use up some candy corn, so I tried this recipe. My mother-in-law has been making the same bars for years, only without the candy corn, and they have always been tasty. Salty and sweet, a great combination.

These didn't last long! I made them yesterday, took them to work today; and they're already gone! Crunchy, sweet and chewy all at the same time. Good flavor, easy to make. The only problem I had was when it said to "pour" the mixture over the marshmallows. I followed the directions exactly, but there was absolutely NO way to pour it over the marshmallows. It was WAY too sticky. I ended up putting it on top in small sections and using a buttered spatula to spread it (in some cases, press it) over the top. Next time, I may leave it on the heat while I mix in the final ingredients to see if it will "pour" easier. Otherwise, it is definitely worth making again.
