Equipment

  • 9x13 Inch Glass Pan
  • Microwave Safe Bowl (2)
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces milk chocolate chips 1 package
  • ¾ cup chunky peanut butter
  • 12 ounces salted peanuts chopped
  • 10.5 ounces miniature marshmallows 1 package
  • 16 ounces cherry frosting 1 package

Instructions

  • Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter on low in the microwave. Stir well and add the chopped peanuts. Spread half of this mixture in a 9 x 13 inch glass pan sprayed very lightly with non stick cooking spray. Place in fridge to set up. 
  • Melt marshmallows in the microwave on very low stirring every 20 seconds. When melted and smooth, stir in the frosting.
  • Spread this mixture carefully on top of the chocolate layer.  Let cool in the fridge.
  • Top with remaining chocolate for the last layer.  If it has set up a little, just microwave it for about 30 seconds and stir well. Be sure to spread each layer to the edges of the pan.
  • Refrigerate until firm.  Cut into pieces - about 48.
  • Store in refrigerator.

Notes

  • Be sure to spread each layer of chocolate and peanut butter to the edges of the pan to make sure it all sets up well. 
  • Let the bars fully set up, before cutting into pieces.
  • Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
