Fun Bars

Another holiday time treat I like to make is Fun Bars. It's another one of those recipes where it takes longer to cook then it does to put together. It has very few ingredients too which is yet another reason why I make it every year. We travel to visit my husbands family on Christmas Eve each year. The whole family gets together for pierogi's, this sauerkraut and mushroom dish as well as a soup that hubby's Aunt usually makes. While I'm not in charge of dessert, I tend to make lots of different goddies for everyone to munch on. It also means that I'm in the kitchen most of the week before Christmas, so I like it when most of my treats are quick and simple.

What You Need:

a boxed cake mix (the regular kind, not a butter recipe or one with pudding)
1/2 a stick butter, melted
1/2 c water
1 c mini M&M's
1 c nuts (peanuts or walnuts work best)
3 c mini marshmallows

What To Do:

Preheat your oven to 375.
Stir together the cake mix, butter and water. The mixture will be really thick and sticky so just do your best to get it all combined. Spray a 13x9 baking dish with cooking spray and spread the cake mixture into an even layer as best as you can. If you wet your hands slightly, you can press the mixture into the pan fairly well without getting very messy. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove and sprinkle the marshmallows on top, followed by the nuts and mini M&M's. Put back in the oven for 2-3 minutes or until the marshmallows start to melt and hold the toppings on. Let cool completely before cutting into bars.
