Posting these photos and this recipe today is making me CRAVE these chocolate marshmallow nut bars in a big way. I can’t even begin to describe how good they are with a cookie-like base and a crunchy/chewy top layered with chocolate, mini marshmallows, and peanuts…Mmmmm!

The peanuts and cookie base keep these from being too sweet, and there’s nothing quite like the combo of salty & sweet!

You will not be sorry {unless you’re on a diet} if you decide to make these for game day parties or potluck meals. And if you’re looking for complimentary treats to round out your table try these glazed lemon bars and my sweet & salty snack mix.

Dessert bar recipes are my favorite type of party treat: they’re easy to handle and they’re the perfect size.
