best and easiest peanut butter chocolate squares
This is so simple I don't even look up the recipe anymore!
2 cups chocolate
(you can use squares, wafers, bars, left over easter bunnies or foil wrapped balls)
1 cup butterscotch chips (I prefer 1/2 of a cup or none)
2 cup peanut butter (smooth is best but crunchy will work)
2 cup mini marshmallows (coloured looks nice)
1 greased cookie sheet
Put a pot on very low heat on the stove empty (this is to ensure there is no dampness in the metal ~ water damages chocolate). Heat pot. Add small amounts of chocolate and stir from the bottom constantly. *** If your chocolate looks grainy, add small amounts of vegetable oil. Cheaper chocolate will need more oil....Just keep adding as needed.
Melt thoroughly with the butterscotch chips (if used).
Add peanut butter. Turn off heat and stir until mixture is smooth.
Pour into a small greased cookie sheet and spread evenly.
Place marshmallows on top of chocolate in rows so when you cut into squares each will get a marshmallow. Press into chocolate.
Cut into squares.
So easy and they are very popular here!
