These ultra sweet bars are always a year-round request, even though I usually only make them at Christmas time. They are very easy to make, and quick! If cherry chips aren't available in your area, butterscotch chips can be substituted.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup half-and-half cream
- 1 cup miniature marshmallows
- 1 cup cherry baking chips
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup roasted Spanish peanuts
Line an 8x8 or 9x9 inch square pan with waxed paper.
In a medium saucepan, combine butter, sugar, salt and half and half. Heat until boiling, stirring occasionally. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring enough to keep from scorching. Remove from heat and stir in the marshmallows, and cherry chips. Press the mixture into the prepared pan.
In the microwave or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, melt chocolate chips, and peanut butter together stirring frequently until smooth. Spread over the mixture in the pan. Refrigerate for 2 hours before cutting into squares.
