Incredibly good!! Made some of these over the Xmas Holidays and everyone ohhed & ahhed. I actually like these better than the candy bars..they are softer and they were oh so easy to make. This is a keeper for me. Thnx so much for sharing this recipe.
These bars tasted very good. However, I had a terrible time with them sticking to everything! First, I had them in the fridge overnight and they wouldn't come out of the pan or stay together and stuck to the serving platter (the entire bottom of the bar was stuck to the platter), what a mess! I put the leftovers in the freezer, this did help with the stickiness some but then they didn't taste as good. Moreover, all of my marshmallows conglomerated in one place, leaving some pieces without any marshmallows at all. I followed the recipe as directed and didn't substitute anything. *Update, I've made these a couple more times and found that if you completely cover the bottom of the pan with the peanuts (takes more than 1/2 jar) than stickiness is not such an issue and I keep them in the freezer. I also let the mixture cool just a few minutes before adding the marshmallows so they don't stick together and then just barely stir them in before dumping them over the peanuts.
These were sooo yummy and addicting! I brought them to work and everyone kept going back for more! I ended up hiding some so i would have some left over for me! i took another reviewers advice and kept them in the freezer after refrigerating them over night because when they sat out they became sticky. if you are going to put them on a platter, i would spray it with pam first to keep it from sticking. A co-worker suggested dipping the bottoms in chocolate, which would help. Thanks so much, this was so easy and great!
