Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the margarine and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Stir in the flour; the mixture should be crumbly. Sprinkle over the bottom of the prepared pan and pack down to cover.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly toasted. Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. When the chips have softened enough, spread them over the crust.
  4. In a heat-proof bowl over simmering water, or in the microwave, combine the marshmallows, peanut butter, brown sugar and light cream. Cook, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the chow mein noodles. Spread on top of the chocolate layer of the crust. Let cool before cutting into squares.

Ok, these taste not too bad, but the pb/noodle filling is less than desirable. The marshmallow, peanut butter, brown sugar turned into a big blob so I had to add about 1/4 cup butter to smooth ...

Pretty tasty! I used an 8"x8" pan and used the full amount called for the base. I used a pastry blender instead of a mixer to make the base crumbly. I didn't measure the chocolate chips, just sp...

I have followed the recipe, it came out bad. It wont spread out evenly. I will not use this recipe again. I am not very happy about it.

Followed the directions exactly as written. Did not have a problem getting them out of the pan. Easy to make, but not one of my favorites. Everyone that tried them said they were wonderful. ...

I made 2 batches... the first one was a mixed review like some of the criticisms already expressed , the second batch turned out great. The difference between the 2 batches was that the seco...
