Butterscotch Confetti Squares

Last week as I was going through all the wonderful recipes that were linked up on our Linky Party, I came to a blast in my past recipe.  I had forgotten about this one and haven't made it for years.  It was one of my favorite squares.... something that I would make when I felt down and needed a pick me up.  Something to remind me of home and I am not even sure why as I don't remember them ever being made at home but they were always at any gatherings... showers, parties and just get-togethers.

I haven't made these for years, probably because my husband has a peanut allergy, but I decided to make them now.... I would hide them and he will never know that they are around. :)  They will just be for me.... all mine. And as long as you don't break the secret, I will have them all to myself.

I also took out my good peanut butter for them.  The jar that I hide in the pantry cupboard, the one that only I know where it is.  My Canadian Kraft peanut butter, yes they are going to be good.

This recipe was found All is amazing, but as all the recipes I have shared... this one I do differently and here is how I make them.  I apologize my pictures didn't turn out very good.  So I made these again today so that I could maybe get some better pictures....

                                                             Butterscotch Confetti Squares
1/2 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 bag butterscotch chips
3/4 bag of marshmallows (10 ounce bag)- either white or coloured
3/4 cup sweetened coconut (optional)
1/4  cup diced peanuts (optional)
1/4 cup toffee bits (optional)

In a large bowl melt butter, peanut butter and butterscotch chips in the microwave.  I do 30 seconds to 1 minute interval and stir in between... If all the chips don't all melt, that's ok, I like the little bits of butterscotch in my squares
Add miniature marshmallows, coconut, peanuts and toffee bits if you want.  The marshmallows may melt slightly.  Once it is all mixed, spread in greased 8 X 8 pan and place in fridge until firm.  Cut in squares and enjoy... And try not to eat the whole pan.

spread in pan and wait until firm... this is the hard part!
