‘Tis the season for Christmas baking, I am so excited! It is December 1st so I thought it would be ok to start posting massive amounts of sweet treats starting today!!
These are one of my all-time favorites! I remember my grandma C. making them and bringing them over to our house on Styrofoam meat trays, that she would wash and save. Re-using meat trays is kind of gross now that I think about it, but at the time I was just happy she had made us a batch of these butterscotch marshmallow squares.
They couldn’t be easier you only need 5 ingredients,
½ cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 bag butterscotch chips
1 cup rice krispie cereal
1 bag mini colored marshmallows
In a pot over medium heat melt the butter, peanut butter and butterscotch chips together until smooth.
In a separate large bowl mix the marshmallows and rice krispies together.
Spray an 8X8 pan lightly with non – stick spray.
Once the butterscotch mixture is smooth, pour over the marshmallow mixture and stir to combine.
Pour the whole thing into the greased pan and press it into an even layer. Stash it in the fridge for an hour or 2 until it is firm enough to cut into squares.
Whenever I go over to my friend Mike’s place, he always says don’t bother coming unless you bring me a batch of the butterscotch squares! LOL!
I don’t blame him, they are super awesome. They are always the first thing to get eaten off my trays of Christmas baking!
