Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Mallow Bars



As I do every Sunday I was running around the house doing chores, when I stopped and thought to myself how great it would be to have something sticky and gooey for dessert tonight. I went to my pantry cabinet and looked around and found a Chocolate Chip cookie mix that my secret Santa at work had given me. Now of course simple chocolate chip cookies would have been simply gooey enough but I wanted to take this plain old cookie mix and give it a new face lift. I think I may have even surprised myself with this creation. I just started to have all sorts of ideas creep into my head but this recipe that a follows was the final winner of being tonight’s Dunkin Family Dessert.


1 - 9 oz. - Duncan Hines family Recipe Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
1 Tbs. - Soft Butter
1 - Large egg
¼ C. - Peanut Butter (smooth)
1 C. - Mini Marshmallows
2 Tbs. - Chocolate Ice Cream Syrup
1 Tsp. - Milk

In a mixing bowl stir together the cookie mix, egg, milk and butter until smooth. Grease a 8x8 baking pan and spread the cookie mixture into the bottom. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes or until set and brown. Remove from the oven and spread on the peanut butter evenly on the top of the cookie bar then top with the marshmallows. Return the pan back into the oven just until the marshmallows start to melt. Take the pan back out of the oven and spread the marshmallows evenly over the peanut butter and then drizzle with the chocolate syrup. Let cool and cut into squares.
