The 12 Treats of Christmas: #8 Peanut Butter Marshmallow Butterscotch Squares

These things need a shorter name. They’re quick to make and don’t hang around long at all. The length of their name is kind of misleading. Though, it does spell out pretty clearly what these guys are. They could also simply call them ‘delicious squares’ and have the same end result.

They remind me of my friend Marilyn’s mom, who used to bake these and keep them in the downstairs freezer… the perfect spot for sneaking from.

    It’s so funny you mentioned Marilyn because I thought the same thing when I saw the name of the post!
