Salted Nut Roll. No lie. Chocolate didn't tempt her like it did me. She likes nuts...the more the better. On a rare occasion she would grab an Idaho Spud or a Rocky Road but that's a story for another day. I made homemade Salted Nut Rolls today and they were pretty tasty! Am I turning into my mom? Or perhaps I should try them dipped in chocolate.
Start by mixing a yellow cake mix with egg and softened butter.
Press in the bottom of a greased 9X13 pan. Cook for 10-12 minutes...
then remove from the oven and add 3-4 cups of mini marshmallows.
Sprinkle them on top to make a single layer.
Place in the oven for an additional 3 minutes until the marshmallows are puffy like this. Let cool.
Meanwhile, mix 1 pkg peanut butter chips, corn syrup and butter in microwave safe bowl.
Until just melted.
Add nuts and vanilla. Stir well.
When cool you can cut into the delicious gems. Be careful. They are addicting.
They are salty and sweet, crunchy and chewy... I can see why my mom loves them.
