Marshmallow Puffs

With peanut butter, chocolate and marshmallows, these treats were very popular with our three kids as they were growing up—and now I make them for our two grandchildren. They're perfect for the holidays when time is so precious. —Dody Cagenello, Simsbury, Connecticut

    I'm anxious to try these. I think the grandkids would love them as well as my chocoholic girlfriends! Think I'll try switching out regular marshmallows for chocolate ones and decorate with while chocolate. They would also look pretty decorated with chopped nuts, holiday jimmies or sprinkles. Options are limitless!

    Wow I remember getting this recipe in home economics class. I used to love these. Forgot all about them until I seen this. Will have to give them a try again.

    We love the marshmallow and chocolate combination! They go over so well here the last time I made them, I didn't get any!

    Easy and tasty. This is a wonderfully simple recipe.. I overlapped the foil so that I could take the treat out of the pan to cut on a cutting board.

    I decided to make a dessert for a church lunch and chose this recipe. It could not be easier! I loved how quick it was, too! When everyone took one (before they were gone) and asked who made them, I was eager to admit to the successful treat! Also it was so easy that I could give them the recipe out of my head!! A MUST-make dessert! 5-stars without hesitation!

    Made some with almond bark, butterscotch and chocolate and everyone loved the butterscotch & PB mix best and wanted me to make more!
