Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares


My Nana used to make these for us when we were children...and adults too.

The key to getting it right is to take time to let the mixture cool. I think Kraft

smoothie peanut butter would work best but I used Jiff as it was available.

Not sure if organic only peanut type would work. This is so sweet it made my

teeth hurt. ( Had to give most away and didn't have time to freeze them)

They taste best if you sneak them out of your grandma's freezer and eat them frozen...

right out of the ice cream pail.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 packet butterscotch chips
1 bag mini marshmallows

Melt butter over medium heat.

Add peanut butter and butterscotch chips; stir until melted. I used a makeshift double boiler.

Remove from heat allow to cool so you don't melt the marshmallows

Stir in the marshmallows gently yet quickly

Pour into a 9x9 pan , 9x13 if you like them thin and refrigerate until set.

I added a graham craker crust which cuts the sweetness but makes them just as good. I love these!

I use 1/2 butterscotch chips & 1/2 regular chocolate chips so it isn't as sweet. We have even tried 1/2 mint chips with 1/2 chocolate & used white marshmallows instead of the fruity ones~YUMMY!
