This is a "must make" at Christmas for my family! If you're having problems with it firming up, check your package of peanut butter chips! Mine DOES NOT contain a full 2 cups. If you're making the recipe with only the 1-2/3 cups of chips in a single package it will probably be softer.

Yummy but very gooey and sticky. It took a long time to get the marshmallows to melt and I had to the pan back on low heat. Not sure if that made them come out sticky and gooey. Next time I might try using marshmallow crème vs the mini marshmallows. Thanks for sharing, a quick and easy recipe.

I have peanut butter on the shelf, but not chips. Can I use that instead?

These are divine! They taste a lot like a Payday candy bar. I have made them twice now for gatherings and have gotten rave reviews. I leave the stove on very low when I add the SCM and marshmallows and stir continually until melted. This seems to speed up the melting process. Definitely a recipe I will be making often. Thanks!

This worked better with 3 cups mini marshmallows and be sure to use the large Virginia peanuts because they don't work well.

Yummy but very gooey. Hard to eat out of hand, a fork works better. It took a long time to get the marshmallows to melt and I had to the pan back on low heat, so maybe that's what went wrong? May try again with half the filling ingredients. But - it was yummy!

Quick and easy to make. I took them to a business bar-b-que and everyone loved them. They taste like a candybar. Not to sweet, just right.

It taste just like or maybe better the Salted Nut Roll Candy Bar. I think next time I will mix the peanuts in the saucepan as one of the last ingredients.

Fantastic bar. Reminds me of the PayDay Bar. Everyone loves this and I get writers cramp giving out the recipe. It is really great for travel. Don't have to worry about temperature control with this one!! A+
