Peanut Butter Confetti Squares

My family calls these Galettes Froides, which translates to cold cakes.  My Memere (grandma) and my Mom have been making these desserts at Christmas time, since I can remember. They've always been my favourite because of the use of the rainbow marshmallows. There's just something about the colours that make these looks so yummy.

These squares couldn't be simple to make and they are no bake as well. Some people use regular white marshmallows, some people use chunky peanut butter and some people add coconut. I like them each and every way I can get them, they are so good!

Peanut Butter Confetti Squares
printable version

1 bag butterscotch chips
1/2 C smooth peanut butter
1/2 C flakes sweetened coconut
1/2 C unsalted butter (not margarine)
4 C rainbow colour mini marshmallows

In a sauce pot over medium low heat, melt the butter, peanut butter and butterscotch chips, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in coconut. Evenly spread out the marshmallows in a parchment lined 9x13 pan. Pour peanut butter mixture over the marshmallows gently folding the marshmallows over to get most of them covered and the peanut butter mixture to reach the bottom of the pan. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before cutting into squares. Once cut, keep in an air tight container in a cool dry place. Can be frozen, in an air tight container, for several weeks.

Hi you can pour the melted mixture over the marshmallows right away, or mix them in.
