Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter smooth
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 package (10 oz) butterscotch chips
  • 1 bag (10 oz size) miniature marshmallows coloured/flavoured variety

Instructions

  • Put marshmallows in large bowl
  • Melt peanut butter and butter in saucepan on LOW heat, just until melted! Do  not overheat.
  • Remove from heat. Make sure mixture is not too hot before adding butterscotch chips or it will crystallize. (I stick my finger in to check that is not too hot)
  • Stir in butterscotch chips, continue to stir until all is melted.
  • Fold mixture into bowl of marshmallows. Combine well.
  • Press into 8x8 greased baking pan.
  • Refrigerate until firm.
  • Cut into 16 large squares.

Notes

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.
