Gluten-Free Peanut Butter
Marshmallow Bars

  • Prep Time 10 min
  • Inactive Time 1 h
  • Total Time 1 h 40 min
  • Makes: 24 bars

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter 250 mL
  • 1/2 cup butter 125 mL
  • 1 pkg butterscotch chips 300 g
  • 1/2 cup Compliments Cocoa 125 mL
  • 1 pkg Compliments Mini Marshmallows 250 g

Directions

  • Step 1

    Grease 9-in. (23-cm) square baking pan; line with parchment paper, with overhang.

  • Step 2

    In medium saucepan, melt peanut butter and butter, stirring often, over medium-low heat. Stir in butterscotch chips and cocoa powder; cook 1 to 2 min. until chips are melted. Remove from heat. Let stand 20 min. until saucepan can be held comfortably. (The cooling helps the marshmallows retain their shape. If added right away into the hot mixture, they will melt or sink to the bottom of the pot.)

  • Step 3

    Fold marshmallows into peanut butter mixture. Scrape into prepared pan, smoothing top. Chill 1 hr. until set. Lift slab out of pan, peel off parchment paper and cut into 24 bars.

Tip

Turn into rocky road squares by adding toasted nuts, chocolate chunks, crumbled cookies or shredded coconut.

For nut-free squares use soy nut butter.
