Maybe it’s the stacks of vintage recipes I’ve been going through lately, but I’m on a nostalgic recipe kick… again. I can remember Mom making squares like these (and the chocolate version too) back when household microwaves first came out… we were melting everything those days! These little no-bake beauties would always come out during baby showers, holidays, funerals, you name it (along with egg sandwiches and date squares).
There is absolutely nothing healthful at all about this recipe… sorry. They are however, Nostalgically Awesome.
- 1 bag (300g) Butterscotch Chips
- 1/2 cup butter (the vintage recipes call for Margarine of course… it was the miracle food then)
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 bag (400g) Multi-Coloured Marshmallows
Spray an 8″ square pan with non-stick spray and line the bottom with parchment paper. In a large pot over low heat, melt and mix together the chips, butter and peanut butter. As soon as it it smooth and melted, remove from heat (don’t let it get too hot… just get the chips melted). Stir in the marshmallows and scoop the mixture into prepped pan. Smooth down the top as much as you can, cover with plastic wrap and set in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. Take the bars out of the pan all at once (this can be tricky… but if you mess up a corner you can always eat it, right? Once out of the pan, cut into squares with a very sharp knife and store in the fridge (hopefully in your finest Tupperware).
