Mud Hen Bars
  • 1/2 c. butter, room temp
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 c. pecans chopped
  • 1/2 c. Hershey's Kisses mini chips
  • 1 c. mini marshmallows
  • 1 c. brown sugar

Beat together sugar and butter until creamy. Beat in 1 whole egg and 2 egg yolks (put aside the whites for later). In a seperate bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking powder. Add to the butter mixture and mix well. Spread into 9x13" pan. Sprinkle with marshmallows, nuts and chocolate chips.

Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold in the brown sugar. Spread over the mixture in pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until bars are a deep golden brown and the crust is cooked through. Cool in pan and cut.  Recipe adapted from Sunday Baker
