  • Melt peanut butter chips and butter in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and microwave until heated through, about 30 seconds more.

  • Stir marshmallows into butter mixture until completely incorporated and melted. Pour marshmallow mixture over peanuts into the baking dish. Sprinkle remaining peanuts over the top, cover the peanuts with a sheet of waxed paper, and press down to fill the pan and create an even layer. Remove wax paper and cool completely before cutting into squares.

Loved this! This recipe taste very much like the famous P@y D@y bar...only fresh and yummier. The asembly couldn't have been easier but it did stick to the pan. Next time I will line the pan with wax paper. I will also double the amount of salted dry roasted peanuts to have good coverage of the yummy center. Any peanuts that don't stick to the mixture could easily be kept for a future use. This makes alot so it was great for my holiday trays! Thanks so much for sharing! Read More

good flavor however needs more peanuts. Way too much soft goo. Even after refrigerating over night still soft and messy. Taste good though. I think it may need twice the peanuts. Read More

I just made these for the first time I cut the condensed milk in half and they came out perfect. What I would do next time is line the pan with wax paper coated with a non stick spray. Mine stuck a bit to the wax paper. To speed up the marshmallows melting put the bowl into the the micro for 10-20 seconds then continue stirring. Also I used a bit smaller size pan one jar of peanuts was plenty to cover the top and bottom. I sprinkled kosher salt onto top before adding the top layer of peanuts. Mine had to chill for about 3 hours before cutting nicely. Super delicious! Thanks for sharing. Read More

OMG these are going on my list of reasons for living. They are soooooooo yummy! I made them for an office birthday treat and they went fast. Not too chewy not too soft - I only used half of the sweetened condensed milk in mine. To make sure they wouldn't stick to the pan I sprayed my glass dish down with butter flavored cooking spray. Worked like a charm. Once I spread the peanuts in the bottom however I noticed that I used more than half of the jar. Instead of running out to buy more nuts I rummaged through my pantry and found cashew halves & pieces and used them as a mix with the peanuts - SO AWESOME. Like another reviewer I also sprinkled a little sea salt on the top of the goo mix before adding the last half of the nuts. Took me maybe 10 minutes to make one pan. Great recipe! Read More

I agree with another review....way too much soft goo. I am a seasoned baker and I don't understand how this recipe can be given 5 stars. I followed the recipe exactly. It stuck to the waxed paper and as the other reviewer stated. Even after spending the night in the fridge it was still a pile of goo. I now have it in a pot on top of the stove to melt. I will try to think of something to add to it to give it the strength to be able to be cut into squares when cool. Read More

Too gooey. I will experiment with this but I think half the amount of sweetened condensed milk would be about right. Read More
