Salty Peanut Chews

Scripture to Live By:
 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.
2 Peter 1:3,4

Bill and I are celebrating our 49th year of marriage today.  I am so very thankful for all the time God has given us together and hope He will give us many more years as husband and wife.  He is not only my precious husband but he is also my dearest friend.  I met him when I was thirteen years of age.  

I can not believe we are on the dawn of 2013.  Wondering all that the new year will bring.  Yet knowing that our times are in God's hands, therefore I can rest in His unfailing love and faithfulness whatever comes. Wishing you a blessed New Year. 

Recipe Post: 
I am not sure where I got this recipe, but it is well worth having. I wanted to share it with you because it is also one of my favorites.  Here is what you will need to make them:

1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon soda
1/2 cup margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 egg yolks
3 cups miniature marshmallows

Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off.  In large bowl, combine all crust ingredients except marshmallows until crumb mixture forms.

  Press into bottom of ungreased 13 X 9 pan.  Bake at 350 F for 12 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown.  

Immediately sprinkle with marshmallows.  Return to oven for 1 to 2 minutes or until marshmallow begin to puff.  Cool while preparing topping.

2/3 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
12 oz. or (2 cups peanut butter chips)
2 cups rice crispy cereal
2 cups salted peanuts

In large sauce pan, heat corn syrup, margarine, and peanut butter chips just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth stirring constantly.  Remove from heat; stir in vanilla, cereal and nuts. 

 Immediately spoon warm topping over marshmallows and spread to cover. 

 Chill; cut into bars.

Serve as a single serving or on a serving dish.

These are so tasty.  One of my favorites, a real hit at any New Year's Party.
