Peanut Mallow Bars

Here's another recipe from Taste of Home.  My Father-in-Law made these bars for Grayson's blessing this passed weekend.  They were a definite hit among party goers! 

1 c. salted peanuts
3/4 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. quick-cooking oats
2/3 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 c. cold butter


1 jar (7 oz) marshmallow creme
2/3 c. caramel ice cream topping
1-3/4 c. salted peanuts
chocolate chips (optional, but oh so worth it :)

In a large bowl, combine the peanuts, flour, oats, sugar, salt, and baking soda; stir in the egg.  Cut in butter until crumbly.  Press into a greased 12x9 in. baking pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Spoon marshmallow creme over hot crust; carefully spread evenly. Drizzle with the caramel topping.  Sprinkle with peanuts.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool on a wire rack and cut into bars.
