I’ve got one more holiday season recipe for you, even though Christmas has passed. This recipe is worth making year round, though, so I don’t feel too bad that I didn’t get the post written in time.
These are scrumptious but very rich (like so many other holiday foods), so I suggest cutting them into fairly small squares. My mister would disagree because I’m sure he would eat a whole batch if left alone with it. He’d probably get a tummy ache in return, though.
I hope all of you had the chance to see your nearest and dearest this holiday season and got to have some Christmas cheer.
Peanut Butter Confetti Squares
(the way my mum makes them)
1/4 Cup butter
1/2 Cup peanut butter (I prefer smooth, but feel free to mix it up!)
1 Cup butterscotch chips
8 oz multicolour mini marshmallows
- Set a small pot over low heat, and melt together the butter, peanut butter and butterscotch chips. Stir attentively, because this mixture burns easily, until smooth.
- Remove the pot from the heat and let it cool. You may be tempted to sneak a taste now, but wait until it has cooled a fair bit because though it is delectable it is lava at this point. You’ve been warned. Letting this mixture cool also stops the marshmallows from melting when they get mixed in.
- Mix the marshmallows in until they are well coated with the sauce.
- Spread the mixture into a 9′ x 9′ pan (or smaller if you want a taller square) and allow to cool before cutting into squares.
Mr says these are one of his favorite things ever since he was pretty small. And he verified my above statement, he will eat these way past the point of comfortable fullness.
This time last year: Cranberry Pear Pie
And the year before that: Christmas Chocolate Truffle Trio
