Marshmallow Crunch Bars

Ingredients:

  • Oil or melted butter, for greasing
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • Generous ¾ cup superfine sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Scant ½ cup chopped mixed nuts
  • 1/3 cup candied cherries, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup mini marshmallows

Method:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and line a 9 inch square cake pan.

Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and add the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Beat well until the mixture is smooth. Stir about two-thirds of the nuts and candied cherries into the mixture.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth level with a spatula. Sprinkle the remaining nuts and candied cherries and the marshmallows over the top, pressing down lightly.

Bake in the preheated oven for 40-50 minutes, or until risen and golden brown.

Let cool in the pan for about 20 minutes, until firm, then cut into bars and finish cooling on a wire rack.
