Salted Nut Roll Bars are going to be your new favorite dessert! Layers of cake, marshmallows, and a peanut butter, Rice Krispies, peanut mixture. It starts with a yellow cake mix so it’s really easy!

Salted Nut Roll Bars (1)

January is a hard month to be a food blogger. I mean, the last few months have all had a theme. September was football, October was pumpkin & Halloween, November was Thanksgiving, and December was Christmas.

But there’s nothing in January.

I’m posting healthy/paleo stuff because I hear it’s popular around this time of year but every time I do, someone unsubscribes and uses the “content not relevant” option.

Which then causes a conversation with my husband that goes something like this: “WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?! Are they saying that my content is not relevant to THEIRlife? Or are they sayingI’mnot relevant? Am I old? Am I too old for the internet?!”

And my husband just looks at me. Because how do you even respond to that?

Ingredients

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup melted butter
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 12 ounce bag peanut butter chips
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups salted peanuts
  • 2 cups Rice Krispies cereal

How To Make Salted Nut Roll Bars

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 9×9 inch pan with parchment or spray with baking spray.
  • Beat together the cake mix, egg, and ¼ cup of butter. Press into the prepared pan and bake for about 10 – 12 minutes until set.
  • Meanwhile, over low heat, melt the remaining ½ cup butter, peanut butter chips, and light corn syrup. Stir frequently until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Add peanuts and Rice Krispies and stir gently until everything is coated in the peanut butter mixture.
  • When the crust is done baking, top with marshmallows.
  • Return to the oven for about 3 minutes or until marshmallows are puffed.
  • Remove from oven and top with peanut mixture.
  • Refrigerate until set.
  • Cut into squares and enjoy!

How Long Are Salted Nut Roll Bars Good For?

These bars are good for about a week in the refrigerator. Make sure to store them in an airtight container – these glass airtight containers are my favorite for everything!

I would let them sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving.

Can You Freeze Them?

Yes, you can freeze these Salted Nut Roll bars for up to 3 months! I would tightly wrap them individually (so you can pull 1 out of the freezer at a time!) in plastic wrap and then place them in a freezer ziploc bag.

When you are ready to serve them, let them sit in the refrigerator overnight.

    I find myself in the “existential crisis food blogger” mode also. Do I post dessert? Do I not post dessert? If I don’t post dessert will anyone read my blog? Sigh. Well, all I know is I want these salted nut rolls and I WANT THEM NOW!

    Haha, there’s always at least one (usually many more) person that won’t be happy no matter what you do, so I say rock on with the rice krispies and peanut butter. :)

    I’ve had the same problem with trying to find a “theme” for this month! Even though it’s still freezing outside, Christmas recipes are over for now :/
    But I really like these bars you’ve made! With three layers and lots of flavor, I’m game! Haha, pinned! :)

    That’s really funny – No – I don’t think you’re too old for the internet!! If you are, then I am as well, and I know that I’m not!

    The thing I’ve become concerned about is bloggers/cooks taking me off of their lists if I don’t look at the content each day – which actually just happened to me. I was unaware that this was how it all worked?!

    Hey – Paleo on – or whatever floats your boat! You’re doing a great job! We’ll be here :)

    This is the time of year people say they’re looking for healthy food, but maybe they aren’t looking for it as much as they want to think they are. You couldn’t go wrong mixing in football playoff and leading-to-the-Super Bowl recipes. Then Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!

    “…someone unsubscribes and uses the “content not relevant” option.” <<< Yes, THAT! What the heck?? People say they want healthy, but they really don't. Anything ooey gooey with caramel or cheese wins every time. And salted nut roll bars.

    People must be cleaning their inboxes because I’ve had several unsubscribes this week. So depressing. But, there’s always cake to make me smile! I’d had a similar cake before and, man, I couldn’t quit eating it! So. Good. And, I could just eat the top layer! Pinned.!

    These look delicious! I think that even though people are looking for diet food now, it won’t last long, and you can never go wrong with posting a dessert!
