"PayDay" Bar cookies

Start with a batch of your favorite Sugar Cookie recipe or use some store bought sugar cookie mix.

Pat the Sugar Cookie Dough in a 9x13 pan that you have sprayed with non stick coating (or they will be hard to cut into bars). Bake in preheated 350 F. oven until lightly golden and the center does not look wet(10-12 minutes).Remove from oven and sprinkle 1 bag of mini marshmallow evenly over top and return to oven for 3 minutes until the marshmallows become soft and puff up.

Remove and set aside. Next you will need: 2/3 cup Corn Syrup 1 cup Peanut Butter Chips 2 and 1/2 tsp. Vanilla 4 Tablespoons salted Butter (NOT margarine) 1 1/2 cups rice crispies 2 1/2 cups salted peanuts. While the cookie base layer is baking, heat corn syrup, peanut butter chips and butter and vanilla until melted over medium heat, in a large saucepan, stirring occasionally to ensure it doesn't burn. Do NOT bring to a boil.

Stir in rice crispies and peanuts (you will need a big wooden and some muscle), reducing the heat to warm until cookie/marshmallow base is done.

 Spoon over crust/marshmallows carefully and spread evenly (Spraying your spoon or spatula with a little non stick spray will help keep it from sticking.

Melt 1 bag mini dark chocolate chips in bowl in microwave 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds or so. Pour over peanut layer.

When cool, cut into bars or small squares.
