Yay! Recipe of the week is back and today I’m going to share a recipe that I remember my Grandma making most of the time. Grandma would make these bars for just about any occasion; Easter, Christmas, or just family coming over for the day.
From an early age, I remember my Grandma teaching me how to bake. It’s what started my love of cooking, baking in particular. I used to help her make peanut butter cookies, shortbread cookies, banana bread, etc. However, this is one recipe that I don’t recall making with her.
These peanut butter marshmallow bars are so creamy, it seems like eating a spoonful of peanut butter directly from the jar. A little goes a long way, you don’t need a big square to enjoy this deliciously, irresistible peanut butter bar.
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 10 Minutes
Total Time: 20 Minutes
Yields: 18 Squares
*Please note that this is a double recipe to fit into a 9 x 13 cake pan. Half to fit into a 9 x 9 square cake pan*
1 Cup Margarine
2 Cups Peanut Butter
1 ½ Cup Chocolate Chips (Semi-Sweet is best)
1 ½ Cup Butterscotch Chips
1 400g package mini-coloured marshmallows (can use plain mini-marshmallows, if desired)
1. Melt margarine, peanut butter, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips over medium heat until well combined, approx. 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cook for approx. 5 minutes.
2. Stir in mini-marshmallows and spread into 9 x 13 cake pan. Place in fridge for an hour before serving.
I made this for the first time (from Grandma’s recipe box) this past Christmas. Depending on what is on sale and what I have in the pantry I will make this or the homemade granola bars (found here) for my husband’s lunches that week. I hope you enjoy these bars as much as we do in our house.
Happy wife, happy life!
