There’s Mars bars and Snickers bars and Payday bars and Zero bars and endless chocolate bars, but never before has there been a PMc Bar! lol, It kind of makes me laugh. You see, I would have never named them PMc Bars, but Ryder came up with it! I’ll go with it, Hershey may be calling for the right to mass produce!!
That’s Ryder. He’s shy. Not!
I had been wanting to creat a candy bar for a while. The Get Your Chef On (GYCO), hosted by White Lights on Wednesday and Fours Marrs One Venus, competition gave me a reason to do it now rather than later. This month’s secret ingredient is chocolate! Perfect!
I’m really please with how they turned out. The perfect mix of salty, sweet and crunchy. I realize they would look more like a traditional candy bar if they were totally coated in chocolate, but I decided that would make them too rich. I’m made a good call. They taste perfect as is. Please try them, they are realllllllllly easy to make!

PMc #Candy Bars
- 1 c all-purpose flour
- 1/3 c butter
- 1/4 c confectioners' sugar
- 1 cup marshmallows
- 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 T butter
- 3/4 c peanuts
- 8 oz chocolate
- In a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the condensed milk and 1 tablespoon of butter. Slowly bring the mixture to a boil, stirring continuously. Continue stirring over the heat until mixture becomes thick and amber in color, about 15 minutes.
- Combine crust ingredients in food processor. Mix until resembles wet sand. Pat into a 8 inch square baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake crust at 375 degrees 12 to 15 minutes. It will not brown.
- Immediately layer marshmallows over crust, return to oven and broil until lightly brown.
- Allow marshmallows to cool slightly and set. Pour the caramel (the sweetened condensed milk that has been cooked down.) over marshmallows and spread evenly using an offset spatula.
- Press peanuts into caramel.
- Melt chocolate at 30 second intervals in microwave. Pour melted chocolate over peanuts and smooth flat. Allow chocolate to set before cutting.
