Salted Nut Roll Bars

Salted Nut Roll Bars

1 box yellow cake mix
2/3 cup butter
1 egg
1 bag mini marshmallows
1/4 cup butter
12 ounce package peanut butter chips
2/3 cup white corn syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla
16 ounce jar lightly salted peanuts

Mix together cake mix, 2/3 cup butter, and egg. 
Pat into a greased 11x15" jelly roll pan.  I found it easiest if I wet my fingers a little bit to keep the batter from sticking to them.
 Press as evenly as you can. Bake at 325 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
 Should be dry on top and slightly brown. 
 Sprinkle wth marshallows and return to oven for another 5-10 minutes.
 Marshallows will puff up and become gooey.
While marshallows are cooling melt butter, peanut butter chips, and corn syrup in small sauce pan.  After it is melted add vanilla.
 Pour over cooled marshmallows.
 Spread as evenly as you can.  I did not wait for my marshallows to cool completely and ended up with it all swirled.  It still tasted good and you couldn't really see it after I put the nuts on.
 Sprinkle with peanuts and lightly press into melted chips.
Cool completely and cut into bars.


  1. These are so different. I have never seen anything like this before. My husband like paydays, are they similar? I think he will like them.
    Thanks for sharing,

    1. I believe so based on my quick search online. I think they are similar just called different names from each company. These are really good!
