Directions

  1. For Crust: Mix flour, brown sugar, corn starch, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl. Cut in butter using a pastry blender OR two knives. Add egg yolks and vanilla. Mixture will be crumbly. Press into an ungreased 13 x 9-inch pan.
  2. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with marshmallows; return to oven for 3 to 5 minutes, until marshmallows are puffy.
  3. Cool completely.
  4. For Topping: Heat corn syrup, butter and peanut butter chips in a saucepan over low heat until smooth. Remove from heat. Add vanilla, cereal and peanuts.
  5. Spread over baked crust; chill 1 hour or until firm.

Amazing and decadent treat! Made it with large marshmallows (what I had at the time) and the peanut caramel pooled around the marshmallows giving it a kind of 'rocky road' looking appearance with some of the marshmallows peeking out from the topping. Great both ways!
