Add the margarine and peanut butter chips to a medium sauce pan and heat until they have melted together. Stir as they are melting to combine evenly.

Remove from the heat and add sweetened condensed milk. Stir until well blended.

Stir the miniature marshmallows into the mixture.

Divide the jar of peanuts into thirds and evenly spread 1/3 on the bottom of the baking pan.

Stir 1/3 into the mixture above.

Spread mixture on top of the peanuts in the bottom of the baking pan. Carefully press the mixture evenly into the pan.

Sprinkle the remaining peanuts on top. After they are evenly distributed, press them slightly into the bar mixture so they stick to the bars.

Place in the refrigerator to store. To serve, cut into bars that are approximately 1" x 2 1/2" in size.
