Jim Grady introduced this recipe to the Bartholomews the Christmas before he married Aunt Jeanette. Jim Young loved these.

1 yellow cake mix
1 egg
2/3 C. margarine
3 C. miniature marshmallows
2/3 C. light corn syrup
1/4 C. margarine
2 tsp. vanilla
1 – 12 oz. bag peanut butter chips
2 C. Rice Krispies
2 C. salted nuts

Mix the cake mix, egg and 2/3 cup margarine together until crumbly. Spread in a 10×15″ cookie sheet or jelly roll pan (wet hands). Bake at 325º for 10 minutes. Spread the miniature marshmallows over crust; heat in oven until marshmallows puff (don’t let them brown). Cool. In a saucepan, mix the corn syrup, 1/4 cup margarine, vanilla and peanut butter chips. Melt. When chips are melted, mix in the Rice Krispies and salted nuts. Spread over marshmallows. Chill and cut.
