1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Margarine, softened
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped salted peanuts


1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping
1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 (7-ounce) milk chocolate bar, cut into chunks*


Heat oven to 350°F. Combine all crust ingredients except peanuts in large bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/4 cup peanuts. Reserve 3/4 cup crumb mixture.

Press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom of well-greased 8- or 9-inch square baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

Meanwhile, place ice cream topping in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100% power) until warm (about 1 minute).

Drizzle topping over hot, partially baked crust. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup peanuts, marshmallows and chocolate chunks. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Continue baking for 15 to 20 minutes or until marshmallows are lightly browned. Cool completely. Cut into bars.

*Substitute 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

The flavors of this recipe are amazing together. I had difficulty getting a good texture. It didn't set as a bar as well as I would have liked. And the caramel made it delicious, but I think a little too gooey/sticky and difficult to cut. However, as I said, the flavors are great and I have my second shot at this recipe cooling as we speak.
Good recipe. I liked the combination of oats, chocolate,
marshmallow, nuts and caramel sauce. YUMMY!
