Confetti Bars! (Butterscotch, Peanut Butter & Marshmallow Bars)Growing up as a kid on the Canadian prairies, confetti bars were a common offering at social occasions. Whether Christmas, birthday parties, wedding socials, or first communions – if there was a spread of food to be had, you could bet that these bars were somewhere on the table.

Of course, I’m not able to take any credit for this recipe – it’s one of those things that you’re just taught when young, memorize, and pass along. Just four simple ingredients, about 2 minutes of work, and a little waiting – that’s it. Mind blowingly simple treats, yet they *fly* off the table whenever I make them! These are definitely a favorite for kids of ALL ages!

Confetti Bars
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
1 package butterscotch chips
~ 1 small package rainbow colored mini marshmallows

In a glass bowl, heat peanut butter, butter, and butterscotch chips. I’ll dump the ingredients in a bowl, microwave it for about 35 seconds, stir, and repeat a few times.

Once the chips are almost completely melted, stir until everything is combined, smooth, and melted together.

Stir in mini marshmallows, gently folding in until all are evenly coated. You may or may not want to use the full bag of marshmallows – I usually use about 2/3 of a bag, but used a whole bag for this batch (as pictured). You may want more of the “fudge” part, you want more marshmallows. These bars are NOT a hard science :)

When marshmallows are fully coated, spread mixture into a lightly greased pan. (I used 8″ x 8″ for 2″ thick bars, 9″ x 13″ is a popular size to use for thinner bars.)

Chill until set.

Slice up and serve!

Thanks Marie!  We can’t wait to try these!
