Bake at 350 for 12 to 18 minutes or until light golden brown.  Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with marshmallows.  Return to oven; bake an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until marshmallows just begin to puff.  Cool while preparing topping.

  1. They look good, Patty; but, I can’t get peanut butter chips here in El Salvador. I’ll just have to wait until I get back to the states in August to try them out.
