Butterscotch Marshmallow Bars: a Christmas Candy from Canada

My Canadian mother-in-law made these treats only at Christmas, for good reason! She made them with the colorful marshmallows–remember those? Rich and smooth, these bars do a quick disappearing act. I hope you enjoy this easy sweet. The butterscotch bars will grace our Christmas feast. A really good “Broad”, like Lynnette, would make her own marshmallows. But I opt for the package. 🙂

6 ounces butterscotch chips (1/2 package)
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chunky peanut butter

2 cups miniature marshmallows

Grease an 8×8 pan. Melt butterscotch chips and butter in microwave, stirring frequently, until mixture is smooth and lump-free. Stir in peanut butter (I prefer all-natural peanut butter) until smooth. Add marshmallows and stir. Refrigerate at least one hour before slicing and serving.

Makes 25 small squares.
