Peanut butter marshmallow squares are so easy to make and only 4 ingredients!

Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares

Peanut butter marshmallow squares are one of our favorite snacks if we want something sweet to munch on for a real treat.  This recipe is so versatile in that you can use the colored marshmallows or the regular white marshmallows.  You can change up the butterscotch chips and use chocolate or whatever you have on hand.  You can use smooth or crunchy peanut butter and they only take a few minutes to throw together.  We make these on holidays and also throughout the year.  You might also like to check out our recipe for copycat payday bars.

Peanut butter marshmallow squares are addictive and fun to make, too!

1 cup crunchy or smooth peanut butter

1/4 cup butter or 4 tablespoons

2 cups butterscotch chips (I use an 11 ounce bag)

5 cups miniature marshmallows (white or rainbow colored)

Melt the peanut butter, butter and butterscotch chips in a pan on top of the stove on low heat until smooth when stirred with a spoon.  Line an 8 x 8 baking dish with aluminum foil and spray the foil with cooking spray.  Pour the peanut butter mixture into the baking dish and let cool for about 15 minutes so the marshmallows will not melt when placed on top.  Spread marshmallows on top and gently mash into the peanut butter mixture with the back of a spoon or your hand.  Refrigerate for at least two hours and cut into squares.  Makes about 12 to 16 squares.  Enjoy!
