Christmas to do list #1 – Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares

010_IMG_1554Christmas isn’t Christmas without holiday baking, so let’s start with something very popular and very easy to make – Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares.

Unfortunately, these probably can’t be sent to school with the kids because they do contain nuts, but they are fine for home and work potlucks. My sister was looking at doing a version with Wow-Butter (it’s a soy peanut butter replacement that kids can take to school) but we don’t have a verdict on that version yet.

These are very easy to make and a good way to get the kids involved in baking.

Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares

1/2 cup butter

1 cup peanut butter

1-300 gram bag of butterscotch chips

1-200 gram bag of mutli-coloured mini-marshmallows (you can use white but why be plain?)

Melt the butter, peanut butter and butterscotch chips over a low heat. Remove and let cool a little as to not melt the marshmallows. Pour in marshmallows. Coat thoroughly. Press into a 9″x13″ pan. Chill in fridge for 1 hour. (You can line the pan with parchment paper for easier removal.) Cut and serve.
