Salted Peanut Chews Recipe

From the first moment I saw these sticky, gooey, creamy, chewy gems [1] on Michelle’s site, Brown Eyed Baker [2], I knew that I would have to make them.  There wasn’t a doubt in my mind.  And, of course I also knew that I would have to share them with you, in case you missed them over at Michelle’s.  How could I not?   If I didn’t, I couldn’t live with myself, because these Salted Peanut Chews are that good.    Mind-numbingly good, actually.  They deserve to be shared with the world – for the good of all mankind!

Think of Salted Peanut Chews as a sort of sophisticated riff on Rice Krispies Treats.  I know I just posted another Rice Krispies Treats-related recipe [3], but I happen to currently be obsessed with them.  Besides, these are very different – and they actually contain Rice Krispies.   They’re layered bars with a buttery, brown sugar base, covered with oozey, melted marshmallows and finished off with a sinfully rich peanut butter, rice krispies and salted peanut topping.  Need I say more? 

The recipe for these Salted Peanut Chews is very straightforward and the bars are a snap, crackle and pop to make.  In fact the most difficult part is waiting the forty-five minutes it takes for them to set up in the fridge.  I ended up cutting into mine early.  But, do as I say and not as I do – and wait the whole time.

Do yourself a favor and make your own Salted Peanut Chews as soon as possible.   Everyone you know will thank you!
