So in the last post I introduced you guys to one of my favourite UAE based cooks Dalia Dogmoch and her fantastic blog D's Kitchen.
Well today I'm going to introduce you to my baking goddess, the very lovely Rosie at Sweetapolita. Her website is a must-visit for any cake or sweet treat lover! I could literally spend hours drooling over her gorgeous cakes and sugary delights, but haven't actually attempted any of her recipes before. That is until now...
These butterscotch peanut butter marshmallow hearts just looked too sweet and delightfully colourful to pass up. As a no-bake treat, I thought it would be the perfect first recipe of hers to have a go at making. They only require four ingredients - peanut butter, butter, butterscotch chips and marshmallows, so barely take minutes to make. Like she says though, they are really pretty sweet. But if you are a peanut butter fan like me then you'll love the added nuttiness from the peanut butter. And well, marshmallows always make anything better, right?
Still if I'm honest, I had never before even tasted a butterscotch chip, as they weren't around my life growing up, so I was extremely excited when I discovered them here, in Dubai, in a large supermarket chain. Knowing that Rosie's recipe for butterscotch peanut butter marshmallow bars was on my 'to-do' list, it made perfect sense to make these bars out of them.
And how cute and sweet do they look! They definitely call to be made at a children's birthday party, or even for a school bake-sale.
However you choose to enjoy them, don't forget the glass of cool milk!
Butterscotch Peanut Butter Marshmallow Bars
Adapted from Sweetapolita
Makes about 16 bars
2 cups butterscotch chips
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup smooth peanut butter
6 cups mini coloured marshmallows
Line a small baking tin or oven dish, with parchment paper. Melt together the butter, peanut butter and butterscotch chips, in a glass or ceramic bowl, over a small pan off water, and on low heat till the water starts to simmer. Take off the heat and stir in the marshmallows. Mix together well till marshmallows are coated with the butterscotch peanut butter mixture. Pour the mixture into the dish, using a wooden spoon or spatula to help spread evenly. Press some loose marshmallows over the top, and chill in the fridge until firm. Using a sharp knife cut into bars.
