Heaven in a pan...

I stole this recipe from Chic Runner, and it's a MUST for anyone who has a sweet tooth.

Start with the following:

30 marshmallows (the regular size, not mini)
3tbsp of butter (I used some fat free margarine crap)
1tbsp of peanut butter - I used 3tbsp of the reduced fat PB
6 cups of Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch
1 1/2 cups M&Ms (I used dark chocolate ones)

Mix the marshmallows, butter and peanut butter in a pan over LOW hear, stirring until you have marshmallow-y goodness. Make sure to keep it on low so you don't burn the 'mallows. Took me about 15 minutes.

Then just pour in the Cap'n Crunch and M&Ms. I immediately then removed it from the heat. Mix it all together - it looks like a giant marshmallow spider web of awesomeness.

Once it's all mixed, dump it out into a greased 9x13 pan and pat it all down into the pan (think brownie style). Let it cool, and then cut into squares. No need to even put in the fridge.

Caitlyn and I had a BLAST making it, and it's so.freakin'.good.

Thank God I'm running long tomorrow ;)



  1. Who says you can't cook! Forget the GU, just pack that concoction :) Have a great run tomorrow!

  2. Oh!! You're a GENIUS!! There HAS to be a market for this ;)

  3. Have you had s'mores bars? Use the basic recipe for rice krispie treats, but substitute golden grahams cereal for the rice krispies, and add chocolate chips. Gooey s'mores goodness.

  4. Hmmmmm, no I haven't L.. But damn that sounds good too.. you must share the recipe w/ me :)

  5. I have to say that looks pretty good and I like Lisa's idea of using it instead of GU!
