Easy No-Bake Nut Goodie Bars

When I think of the holidays, I think it’s time for baking (or making) and sharing.  I’m not sure where the recipe came from; it’s just been in our recipe box for the past 20+ years. They’re super simple and very fast to make too. No baking, only 5 ingredients, and they take minutes to prepare. It’d be hard to mess these up. Just follow my instructions and you’ll have a delicious holiday treat to add to your dessert trays or you give it away as gifts.  Everyone loves these, so you will be a hero. I won’t waste any more time…let me show you how to make these.

Step 1 Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper, grease and set aside.

Step 3 Once the mixture is completely melted and smooth, add the mini marshmallows & Spanish peanuts and stir to combine.
