Fun Marshmallow Bars


I found this recipe years ago in a magazine and they were called “Fun Marshmallow Bars” — but really, I like to call them: The-Perfect-Way-to-Use-Up-Your-Leftover-Easter-Candy Bars.

Yield: About 24 brownies

Throw everything except the kitchen sink on these brownies!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 1 package Devil’s Food cake mix
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup M&Ms (or any other type of candy you’d like to use)
  • 1/2 cup peanuts


    1. Preheat oven to 375F.

    2. Combine cake mix, water, melted butter, and egg. The batter will be THICK. Press into a greased 9×13 pan.

    3. Bake for 20-22 minutes.

    2. Remove from oven and sprinkle with marshmallows, candy, and peanuts. Bake 2-3 minutes or until marshmallows begin to melt. Cool on a wire rack.


Your yield will depend on how big or small you cut your bars.

  • It looks like you sacrificed some of your pastel M&Ms stash for these guys- I’m not sure I could have done the same! I know I’m crazy, but I think the pink ones are the best-tasting color…

  • I know! But I CANNOT have candy lying around — I will eat every last morsel.

    And you’re not crazy, cause I totally think that the pastel M&Ms taste creamier and smoother than the regular colors.
