Found this recipe in Maw Maw's Old Church Cookbook and have enjoyed making it ever since. A very simple but good recipe. They are not like the mud bar that has chocolate on top. Has the taste and texture of what grandma use to make.

In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking powder. Add to the butter mixture and mix well. Spread into 9x13" pan. Bake the crust for 5 minutes before adding marshmallows. Let cool and then sprinkle with marshmallows, nuts and chocolate chips.
