Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares

This is one of the easiest desserts to make! Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares. No-bake & 5 ingredients!

My sister was making this one day & so I had her tell me how to make it! She found out from her friend so I do not know where this recipe originated from but it is delish! Melted chocolate chips, butterscotch chips & peanut butter mixed together, then you add some peanuts & mini marshmallows. Chill, cut & enjoy! I used smooth peanut butter but you can use crunchy peanut butter if you prefer! I cut this into squares & then froze them! They were good frozen but did not take long to soften up if you do not like to eat frozen treats!

Here is the recipe

Ingredients

1 bag of chocolate chips

1 bag of butterscotch chips

1 cup peanut butter

1/2-1 cup peanuts

mini marshmallows, you can use as much as you want! 1/2 – 1 full bag

Method

1 9 x13 pan Spray with non-stick spray

  1. In a large bowl, melt the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips & peanut butter together. Mix together until well combined
  2. Add the peanuts, mix
  3. Add the marshmallows & stir them in until all of the marshmallows are coated with the peanut butter mixture
  4. Pour into the greased pan
  5. Chill in the refrigerater until firm
  6. Cut into squares, any size you want!

Enjoy!

Chocolate Walnut Marshmallow Fudge

Chocolate Walnut Marshmallow Fudge! This fudge is just so easy to make! Perfect to take as a gift, just put the fudge into a tin or a lovely dish & there you have it! This will be a well appreciated gift for everyone!

My fav fudge has nuts in it so this recipe is a winner for me! Oh… & marshmallows… and chocolate ? Delish!

The recipe is from the Eagle Brand website so I knew it would be great!

Here is the link to the recipe: http://www.eaglebrand.com/recipe-detail/chocolatesnowswirlfudge-3970

You are going to want to make this over and over! The Ingredients are Chocolate Chips, a jar of condensed milk, butter, vanilla, walnuts & marshmallows!

NOTE: This fudge would be delish without nuts too so if you don’t like nuts or some has an allergy, leave them out!

Here is the recipe

Ingredients

3 cups of chocolate chips

1 300 ml can sweetened condensed milk

4 tablespoons of butter, you will use this divided

a pinch of salt

11/2 tsp vanilla

1 cup chopped walnuts *** pecans would be good too

2 cup mini marshmallow. ***but I am sure you can use large marshmallows if that is what you have!

Method

You need a square 9×9 dish Line the dish with parchment or wax paper & then spray the paper with cooking spray. TIP: Leave about an inch of an overhang with the paper so it is easy to lift yah fudge out of the pan when you are ready to cut it

  1. Melt the 3 cups of chocolate chips, the can of sweetened condensed milk, 2 tbsp of butter & salt. You can do this in a saucepan over medium heat stirring often or in a microwave on medium heat stirring after every minute until melted. I don’t know how long this will take, it depends on your microwave actually but be careful not to burn this or you will have to start again!
  2. When melted, stir in the vanilla & nuts. Spread evenly into the prepared pan & set aside
  3. now, melt the marshmallows with the remaining 2 tbsp butter. Stir often. When the marshmallows are melted pour them over top of the fudge. Using a knife swirl the marshmallow through the fudge
  4. Chill for at ;east 2 hours in the fridge before cutting. Lift the fudge out of the pan with the overhang you left of parchment paper. Put onto a cutting board & cut into squares. You can cut them into any size squares you like!

Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving!! Three great recipes for dessert! Pumpkin Custard, Apple Crisp & Lemon Meringue Pie

Three desserts that are perfect for anytime but great to end a Thanksgiving meal!

I love the Pumpkin Custard, baked in individual ramekins these are easy to serve & if you have left-overs perfect in the fridge for a few days. Light & cream in texture they are perfect if you are full from dinner!

Apple Crisp is always a great dessert… eat some fruit!!

And last but not least by any means… Lemon Meringue Pie Always perfect in my mind! One of my favorite pies. I like to use lemon pie filling for my Lemon Meringue Pies.. it is easy & we like it! Of course making the lemon filling from scratch is always good too but this recipe is with the boxed lemon filling.

Pumpkin Custard

My husband Murray loves everything pumpkin! Maybe not a pumpkin spice latte but pretty sure everything else! Murray made these pumpkin custards with fresh pumpkin & they are delish!

Apple Crisp

Always a welcome dessert, it seems that everyone loves Apple Crisp! Apple Crisp is so much simpler to make than pie…& I bet it is healthier too. Though I am no nutritionalist..it makes sense to me…though don’t get me wrong…I love pie!! But for a quick fruit dessert…Apple Crisp is a really delicious choice. You…

Lemon Meringue Pie

Usually I make lemon meringue pie using Yellow lemon pie filling… but here is a recipe for making the pie filling from scratch) It was a bit more time-consuming but it is not difficult.at all!
