Confetti Squares Recipe

Looking for a sweet and fun dessert for a New Year's celebration that both adults and kids enjoy? Try confetti squares, our family favourite.


Now, this presentation and these photos are a bit rushed, but I have to cut quick and snap photos fast when confetti squares are in our house. Visiting family and my kids/hubby inhale them. I end up making them at almost all family get togethers or face the sad faces. Warning: super sweet and it is hard to eat just one. And not nut free the way we make them either.


This is not my original recipe, my mil has been making them for years.


Note: I always make a double batch by doubling all ingredients and chilling in a 9x13" glass baking dish (our extended family is numerous.) The following recipe below is for a single batch and would be in a 8 or 9" square pan.
Confetti Squares
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup smooth peanutbutter
1 package butterscotch chips
3 cups coloured miniature marshmallows

Place butter, peanutbutter and butterscotch chips in a pan on medium-low heat. Stir CONSTANTLY until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and let cool 20 minutes. After cooling, stir in miniature marshmallows. Pour into a butter greased 8 inch square pan, plastic, or glass container. Chill in fridge until firm (a few hours.) Cut into squares (not too big as they are quite sweet) and serve. They freeze okay too.


This is what the ingredients (minus marshmallows) look like when melted, nice and smooth. Melting doesn't take long so keep stirring for a couple of minutes and to avoid burning, keep stirring anddon't walk away! They are quite quick and easy to make. Remove from burner and let cool before adding marshmallows. I've shared this one before, but thought it wouldn't hurt to share again (plus I had a moment to snap some blurry photos.)
