So the other day, as I was trying to think of a spring-like treat to whip up on a sunny Friday afternoon, it hit me. What is more spring looking than an array of pastel colors? Five minutes later, (seriously, five minutes later), these perfect treats were chilling away in the fridge.
Why not whip up a pan of these for an upcoming Easter gathering? A small 9x9 pan of these goes a long way, and would be a nice treat with a cup of coffee after an Easter brunch. Be sure to check out the links included in this post for some other scrumptious recipes for Easter. They are some of the favorites contributed by other bloggers to a week of fantastic Easter recipe sharing. Why not follow them to get a few new ideas every day?
But first: take 5 minutes to make these!
Peanut Butter Confetti Bars
|Look at this tower of sweet spring goodness!|
1/4 cup melted butter or stick margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 package butterscotch chips (225 gram package)
Rainbow mini marshmallows (250 gram package)
Place mini marshmallows in a large mixing bowl and set aside.
Line the bottom of a 9x9 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter in 20 second increments. Add butterscotch chips and peanut butter, and stir. Continue melting on high power, 20 seconds at a time, stirring after each time until just melted. Basically, you want a warm, smooth mixture....not a boiling hot mess.
Pour the peanut butter mixture over the marshmallows. Lightly stir to combine. Transfer to the prepared pan and lightly press. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to fully firm up.
To cut, run a knife along the edges to loosen the squares from the pan. Flip the pan over to remove (if you lined the pan with parchment carefully this will easily happen). If not, just cut the squares directly in the pan.
I like to cut these into 36 squares. A little bite of these goes a long way. You can always have a few, right?!
