Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares

Have you ever made a shameful treat like this one and then proceeded to "forget" to serve them to your guests and then eaten the entire pan yourself over the course of 3 days?

Me neither.

However, to defend myself, the marshmallows are fruit-flavoured (who knew?) and peanut butter is full of protein.  And the recipe couldn't be easier. The marshmallow package and likely the butterscotch chips package will both have a version of this treat listed there. This is my easy version.

50g (just over 4 cups) marshmallows (1 bag! How easy!)
300g butterscotch chips (nearly 2 cups) (1 bag! How easy!)
1/2 cup margarine (1 prepackaged square! Easy!)
3/4 cup peanut butter

Melt the chips, margarine, and peanut butter over medium heat. You're supposed to use a double boiler but if you're careful to stir constantly you can heat it directly in a saucepan (the goal is not to burn anything on the bottom).

Let the mixture cool so that it still flows but will not melt the marshmallows. Mix in the 'mallows and let set in a greased 9" x 9" pan. Refrigerate until set.
