Mud Hen Bars

I should seriously change the name of this blog to Muriel Bakes! Gosh, I sure do bake a lot don't I!  I hope that once we get moved into our new place that I will get the motivation to start cooking again.  

Anyways, I was browsing through Pinterest the other day, when I came across this delicious looking bar recipe that I knew at once I HAD to make!  These were AMAZING!  I know I say that about everything, but I'm really not messing around this time.  These bars are good!!!  I had all the ingredients on hand too which worked out perfectly for my crazy craving :)  So here my friends, is one delicious recipe that you can all whip up for those get togethers you may have planned for the weekend!  Enjoy!

1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs, divided (1 egg, 2 yolks, and 2 egg whites)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I added this)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup chopped nuts (I left these out)
1 cup light brown sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 pan and set aside.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together butter and granulated sugar until creamy. Beat in 1 whole egg and 2 egg yolks (put aside the whites for later.) Beat in the vanilla extract.
3. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Blend until just combined. Spread mixture into 9x13" pan. Sprinkle with marshmallows, chocolate chips, and nuts-if using.
4. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in the brown sugar. Spread mixture evenly over marshmallows and chocolate chips. Bake for about 30 minutes or until bars are a deep golden brown. Let bars cool completely. Cut into squares and serve
