In keeping with this theme, my sister Teresa shared this yummy recipe with us. She calls them bars- but I think you could almost call them candy!
She got the recipe from her mother-in-law who made them often for family get-togethers. Now Teresa makes them regularly to sell at the Farmer’s Market, where they are always a big hit!
She did rename them for the Farmer’s Market- calling them Chocolate-Butterscotch Bars which do more accurately describe what’s inside.
Maybe she should call them Disappearing Chocolate-Butterscotch Bars because that’s exactly what happened to my last batch. They were all gone in less than 24 hours. Wow!
Disappearing Marshmallow Bars
Melt 1/2 cup butterscotch chips and 1/4 cup of margarine or butter.
Cool and add 1 cup flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and 1/2 teaspoon burnt sugar flavoring. Mix well.
Fold in 1 cup of mini marshmallows, 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/3 cup chopped nuts (if desired).
Spread in a greased 9 inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Do not over bake. Center will be jiggly but will firm up when cooled.
