Butterscotch Confetti Squares

The last couple of years I've sold my holiday baking at a few different Christmas Craft markets, which requires a heck of allot of time, and ingredients, and passion!  I think I got a little baked out.  As a result, I didn't sign up for any markets this year, and have done very little baking, even just for personal.  Very little for me anyways!
I actually didn't think that I'd manage to post prior to Christmas.   We've been plagued by one virus after another, and frankly, I'm pooped.  Chatting with some of the girls at work, this is a commonality.  We're all just like, totally tuckered out!  So my Christmas wish for you all is to get time to enjoy the little things, and make time for what gives you joy! 

Do you do a big dessert for your Christmas dinner?  I opt not for cake or pie, but put out a big ol' platter that my fam can nosh on all day and night if they so desire.  One treat that I absolutely must make for my Christmas platter, are these Butterscotch Confetti Squares.  No Christmas grinchy mood could stop me from making these squares,  they are my sister's favourite, and I hope that I bring her tummy joy with each bite, and now yours too!

Butterscotch Confetti Squares

2 cups (1 300g bag) butterscotch chips
1 cup smooth peanut butter (crunchy would work in a pinch)
1/2 cup butter
1 bag (400g) mini multi-coloured marshmallows

Have ready a large baking pan (9 x 9 or 9 x 13), lined with parchment paper or foil.  Using a large, heavy saucpan, heat the first 3 ingredients on lowest heat, stirring often, until chips are almost melted. Remove from heat, and continue to stir until smooth.  Add marshmallows, stirring until just coated. Pour into the prepared pan, and push down gently, use wet fingers if needed.  Chill until firm, and cut into squares.

Merry Christmas!
