Nobody will be able to resist this combination of chocolate, caramel, marshmallows and peanuts.

cups powdered sugar
1
(7-oz.) jar marshmallow creme

1
cup crushed cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies (about 8 to 10 cookies)
1/2
cup salted peanuts, finely chopped
1/4
cup margarine or butter, softened

Topping

36
caramels, unwrapped
3
tablespoons milk
1
cup salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
1/2
cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted

  • 1 In medium bowl, combine 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar and marshmallow creme; blend thoroughly. On surface sprinkled with powdered sugar, knead in remaining 2 cups powdered sugar. Shape mixture into 7 1/2-inch square. Cover with plastic wrap. Set aside.
  • 2 Heat oven to 350°F. Line 8-inch square pan with foil. Grease or spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. In small bowl, combine crust ingredients. Press in bottom of lined pan. Bake at 350°F. for 10 minutes or until puffy. Uncover marshmallow square; immediately place over hot crust.
  • 3 Melt caramels and milk in medium saucepan over low heat, stirring requently until smooth. Pour over marshmallow layer. Immediately sprinkle with 1 cup peanuts. Drizzle melted chocolate chips over peanuts. Cool completely. Cut into bars.*
Tips  

*Bars will cut easier if placed in refrigerator for 1 hour to harden caramel.

For easier cutting and quicker clean-up when baking bars, thoroughly moisten the inside of the baking pan with wet cloth or paper towel. Line the pan with foil so that the foil extends up and over the sides of the pan, making sure the corners fit snugly. Grease and/or flour the foil as directed in the recipe. When the bars are baked and cooled, lift the foil and bars out of the pan onto a cutting board. Peel the foil back and cut the bars.
