Fall Harvest Bars

These were excellent tasting! I loved that it made a jelly roll pan so there was a lot to share. I took some to school for the teachers and they all liked it.

Fall Harvest Bars


 
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 package yellow cake mix with pudding
3 eggs
3 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups Crispix Cereal
2 cups peanuts, lightly salted
1 cup candy corn

Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine the butter, egg, and cake mix in a large bowl until well combined.

 Press cake mix "dough" into the bottom of an ungreased 15"x10"x1" jellyroll pan.Bake for 12-15 minutes or edges are lightly browned.5. Remove from oven, sprinkle marshmallows over hot crust, then bake for an additional 1 - 2 minutes or until the marshmallows have puffed.

While crust is baking, combine corn syrup, sugar, and brown sugar in a large saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring until it comes to a boil. Remove from heat and add the peanut butter and vanilla and stir until smooth. Gently stir in cereal, peanuts, and candy corn to coat. Spoon over warm crust and marshmallows, then wet your hands and gently press the cereal mixture to spread it over the marshmallows. Cool completely, then cut into bars.
