Butterscotch Confetti Squares are one of those addictive treats that are so quick and simple to make and taste totally awesome! This treat is something we probably all had as children, but still love as adults.
One big tip I have when making Butterscotch Confetti Squares is to make sure the butter-peanut butter mix isn't too hot prior to adding the butterscotch chips. I have done this, and instead of being smooth and creamy it tasty grainy because the sugars crystallized.
Butterscotch Confetti Squares
Smooth and creamy, these Butterscotch Confetti Squares are so addictive!

Another great sweet treat are my Butterscotch Rice Krispie Squares
Didn't have enough butterscotch chips but turned out really awesome. Substituted the butter for crisco but you wouldn't even notice the difference. Love it. Thank you.
It's the perfect recipe!! Never failed me even once if you follow the directions EXACTLY as written!! You definitely want the mixture to be cool to the touch but not COLD before adding the marshmallows!
