1 (18.25 oz.) package yellow cake mix

1 large egg

4 cuts miniature marshmallows

1 (12 oz.) package peanut butter chips

2/3 cup corn syrup

Cook until chips and butter are melted and mixture is smooth, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in crisp rice cereal and peanuts. Carefully pour over marshmallows and spread to cover.
