This is one of my weaknesses on the treat tray when we have lunch brought in for a meeting. When the dessert trays are put out....I always make a quick scan to see if one of my favourites is hiding in the mix. If I find these, or Naniamo Bars, or Butter Tarts.....my diet for the day is most surely blown. It seems to me that these bars must have been designed for kids with their colourful fruity marshmallowy super sweetness. Take a hint here that a small piece goes a long way. Even my Ike has a hard time eating a large piece of this. Be warned...if you have never tried them....they are sweet. But if you love all things peanut butter, you simply must give these a try.
Marshmallow Peanut Butter Bars
1/2 cup butter
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 (300g) package of butter scotch chips
1 (250g) package of fruit flavoured mini marshmallows
3/4 cup shredded coconut (optional)
Over medium heat, melt the first 3 ingredients stirring until smooth. Once smooth remove from heat and let cool slightly. Add marshmallows and coconut if desired, stirring to coat. (Most often I have seen this slice without coconut). Pour into a greased 9X13 inch pan and put in the refrigerator to set up.
