As much as I love trying new and different foods and recipes, there’s just no beating a classic. And in our house, Kraft Creamy Peanut Butter has always been a classic choice for my recipes, whether I’m making a simple batch of peanut butter cookies or a savoury Thai Peanut Beef recipe.
So, when Kraft Canada asked me to share my favourite peanut butter recipe, choosing just one was no easy job! But I was in a nostalgic mood and craving something sweet, so I chose my very favourite foolproof Peanut Butter Confetti Squares recipe!
Every bite of these smooth, dreamy butterscotch and peanut butter squares studded with rainbow marshmallows is pure bliss. And when I was a child, they were the treat I was most excited to have when I went to my best friend’s house (since my own mom didn’t make them).
Of course, it didn’t take me long to learn to make these practically-foolproof squares myself. And while I started out mixing nothing but marshmallows into my squares, I soon learned that just a half-cup or so of Rice Krispies made the squares even better. If you’ve made these before but haven’t ever added Rice Krispies, do it now!
But even if you make this Peanut Butter Confetti Squares recipe in its most classic form, you’ll be amazed by how delicious four simple ingredients can be when they’re combined. Just butterscotch chips, peanut butter, butter and marshmallows merge to make a square that’s melt-in-your-mouth decadence.
Convinced you need to make this right now? You’re going to love how easy these tasty squares are!
