I've been asked to share this marshmallow chocolate bar recipe more than any other in my collection. It's a longtime favorite of our three daughters. How many times we've all made these, I can't count. — Esther Shank, Harrisonville, Virginia

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
