Monster Mama by Mickey
I know I've referenced her for other recipes but I wanted to give a very special thank you today because this recipe was scrumptious. So scrumptious in fact that I took it to a Bible Study and I didn't dare bring any home with me because I would have eaten them all. I realized when I got home that I forgot to take a picture beforehand, so I had to borrow these pictures from Mickey's recipe post. Make sure you go over and check out MONSTER MAMA! Don't you just love that name.
Marshmallow Pecan Bars
1 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup quick cooking oatmeal
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg lightly beaten
1/3 cup cold butter
1 jar (7oz.) marshmallow creme
2/3 cup caramel ice cream topping
1 3/4 cups chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 350.
In a small bowl combine chopped nuts, flour, oats, sugar and bakind soda. Stir in egg, then cut in your cold butter until it is crumbly. Using your fingers, press into a 13X9 pan.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until it is lightly browned.
Spoon marshmallow creme over hot crust, let it melt a little then gently spread over crust. (I actually put it back in the oven for a minute to melt the marshmallow enough to spread it.)
Drizzle with the caramel topping and sprinkle with the chopped nuts.
Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes until the marshmallow creme top is just starting to brown.
Cool and cut into bars.
These were total chewy, gooey goodness. Make sure you have some ice-cold milk at hand!
