It is one of those deceptively simple recipes, only four ingredients and I can never get it to turn out like Barb's. I have no idea why. I may actually have the recipe wrong, I suspect the amount of butter is too high, but this is what I wrote down so.....
Sorry Barb, I don't have a picture of you, your house will have to do, for now...
That's Barb's place on the lake, she hosts an annual get together in the summer. It looks so calm and peaceful in that picture, just wait until the Fisher clan arrives.
Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares
1 cup butter or margarine
¼ cup peanut butter
1 package butterscotch chips
1 package regular or mini marshmallows
In the top of a double boiler, combine butter and butterscotch chips. Heat, stirring occasionally until butterscotch chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat, add peanut butter and stir until well mixed. In a large bowl, mix together marshmallows and warm butterscotch mixture. Pour into a greased 8x8 or 8 x11 in pan. Refrigerate until cool.
Butterscotch doesn't melt like chocolate, it takes a lot longer and is harder to smooth out so be patient. I use a double boiler so I don't scorch it. My microwave hates me so I don't use it either, but you can melt it on top of the stove or in the microwave if you prefer.
I have a feeling the amount of butter is only a half cup, mine has a tendency to separate, with the marshmallows floating to the top instead of staying all together.
I haven't tried this but yet I think it would be good with almond or hazelnut butter too.
Even though Ferd loves these, I don't make this recipe a lot. They are kind of addictive and disappear fast around here. Who can afford all those calories all the time? LOL
So here's a recipe that proves it doesn't have to be complicated, to be complicated. Good luck and enjoy.
