Crack squares

These squares are so good. And super easy to make. And no baking required. Not exactly low in fat though. But it's good fat, and Harvard Medical School actually says that peanut fat is up there with olive oil. Who knew?

1 package butterscotch chipits (300 grams)
4 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups Rice Krispies

Put butterscotch chipits and peanut butter in a large bowl. Microwave on medium heat for about 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each 30 seconds, until melted and combined together.

Stir in Rice Krispies and marshmallows. Work quickly as it will start to congeal.

Press into a greased 13 X 9 pan. Let cool and cut into squares.

The last time I made them I thought I'd melt the marshmallows in with the peanut butter and chipits. Not a good idea. The squares became very brittle. Still tasted fantastic, but I didn't like the texture of them.

Pic below was with the melted marshmallows (as opposed to the unmelted marshmallows) which I won't do again.
