Oatmeal Raisin Bars

These bars are so popular with my family that I have to hide them if they're bound for a buffet! I got the recipe from a farm wife with growing boys. I always make plenty, because even this big batch disappears quickly around our house.—Annie Beilers, Leola, Pennsylvania

    I made these for our cross country team because of the higher protein count. They loved them. It gets gooey working with melted marshmallows but well worth it.
