Butterscotch Marshmallow Square (No-Bake)

Imagine this as a multicoloured square, not just orange as the picture depicts.

This is that square that I'm sure everyone has seen at some potluck function in the past. The one with all the coloured marshmallows impeded in a strange orangey-brown goop. Or maybe you saw one that was white marshmallows in chocolate (hello rocky road?). Well, this is my Grandma's go-to treat. She doesn't like to bake much, but she does this well and everyone enjoys it (how could you not, it's sugar, sugar and more sugar? Plus it has awesome bright colours.)


1/2 C. Butter
3/4 C. Peanut Butter
1 Pkg. Butterscotch (or Milk Chocolate Chips)
1 Pkg. Coloured Marshmallows (or white if making the chocolate version)
1 C. Rice Krispies


~Combine margarine and peanut butter in a large microwave safe dish and microwave on high until the butter melts.
~Stir and when smooth, add in the chips and microwave again until chips are soft enough to melt away by stirring.
~When mixture has cooled slightly, stir in the marshmallows and rice krispies until evenly coated.
~Spread into a greased 9x13 dish.
~Place in fridge to set.
~Cut into squares
