Corn Candy Treats

Here is a recipe that I made for my son's first birthday party.  I always love the combination of sweet and salty.  And candy corn is a fall favorite!

1 yellow cake mix
1 stick butter, melted
1 egg
13 oz. marshmallow creme
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
14oz. bag caramels
1 Tbsp. milk
12 oz. bag corn candy
1-2 cups salted peanuts

Combine dry cake mix with melted butter.  Mix in one egg.  Pat evenly into a jelly roll pan and bake for 12-15 minutes at 350*.  The dought should be baked evenly and barely golden brown.  While the crust is baking combine the marshmallow creme with the powdered sugar.  Pour the marshmallw mixture over the warm cake crust and let cool.  Melt caramels together and stir in milk.  Drizzle most of the caramel over the bars, reserving about 1/2 cup.  Sprinkle the candy corn and peanuts evenly over the caramel layer.  Press down on the candy to secure it to the bars.  Drizzle with remaining caramel.
