These bad boys are now in the permanent rotation. They are also known as Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares, Butterscotch Squares… I’ve heard a ton of names for these little squares of deliciousness. They are one of Paul’s favourites, and SO FREAKING EASY! I didn’t realize until I made them what I have been missing out on.
I found the recipe here, but let’s just get this straight – there are a TON of variations of the recipe. The measurements are all generally the same, but I used this one because of the amount of peanut butter. Oh yeah. The peanut butter mixture was perfect. Now I just have to make these again with crunchy peanut butter… I’m a smooth peanut butter girl, but Paul loves the crunchy. I told him I wanted to stick with the original directions (in 99% of the recipes I found) that use smooth peanut butter. We’ll see how it goes!
Yield: Approx. 12-16 squares, depending on cut size
¼ c. butter
1 c. smooth peanut butter
1 bag butterscotch chips
4-5 c. multicoloured mini marshmallows
Line a 9×9 inch square pan with foil and lightly grease with cooking spray.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter, peanut butter, and butterscotch chips together until smooth. Let sit for 10-15 minutes to cool slightly. (If you don’t let it cool, you will melt the marshmallows – not good!)
Fold in the marshmallows when mixture has cooled. Make sure marshmallows are evenly coated. Pour into the prepared pan, and press into an even layer with a spatula.
Transfer to the refrigerator and chill for 1-2 hours, or until firm, then slice.
