The first step to making Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares was to dump some margarine and peanut butter into a sauce pan over med/low heat.

Once the margarine and peanut butter had melted together I stirred in some butterscotch chips.

When the butterscotch chips had melted into the liquid in the pot I removed the sauce pan from the heat.  

I allowed the mixture to cool until I could touch the bottom of the pan.

When I was able to lay my hand flat under the pan and only feel a bit of warmth, I dumped in some mini coloured marshmallows.

Then I added in some Mini Reese’s Pieces.

I stirred in the marshmallows and candy pieces until they were all coated in the peanut butter mixture.

Next I lined a 9″ x 13″ pan with some wax paper.

I scraped all the contents of the sauce pan into the wax paper lined baking dish.

Then I used a large spatula to press the mixture down evenly in the baking pan.

I placed the baking pan in the fridge to let it set for a couple of hours before using the wax paper to remove the Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares from the baking pan.

Then I used a sharp knife to cut Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares into the size of squares I wanted. 

The size will be based on your personal preference and whether Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares are being served as a stand alone dessert or being added to a dessert tray where people might prefer a sampling size.

For me this recipe can yield between 24 and 40 squares depending on the serving situation.

Whether served alone, or as part of a holiday dessert tray, these squares provide a colourful, eye catching addition to brighten up any occasion.

Enjoy the many flavours and textures in this delectable dessert square!

The peanut butter and butterscotch blend is surprisingly good and makes it difficult to have just one!
