fake and bake – peanut butter butterscotch squares
All the bakers who read this blog are collectively gasping at this post. My apologies in advance. Since it is the beginning of December, I started what I loosely term My Christmas Baking.
I use the term baking very liberally because this is hardly a baked recipe – in fact, it is melted on top of the stove. I guess it is more like candy.
But let’s start with the easy Christmas “baking” wins, shall we? My kids adore these. They are trashy, but taste really rich and goopy.
Peanut Butter Butterscotch Squares
1/2 cup butter
1 package butterscotch chips
1 cup peanut butter
1 3/4 cups mini-marshmallows
Melt butter and butterscotch chips in saucepan on stove. Don’t stir until melted, or it will become grainy. Watch it doesn’t burn!
Take off the burner and stir in peanut butter until it melts. Add mini-marshmallows and press into a greased 8 x 8 inch pan. Put in fridge until set.
