How to Make Confetti Squares
Line a 8x8 square baking pan with parchment paper, set aside.
In a medium sized pot add in the peanut butter, butter, and butterscotch chips. Over medium-low heat melt until mixture is smooth.
Once mixture is melted and has a smooth texture remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. You do not want to skip the cooling step, if you do the hot liquid will melt your marshmallows.
When room temperature is reached mix in the vanilla. Place the marshmallows into a large mixing bowl and pour the cooled peanut butter mixture in. Mix together until the marshmallows are well coated.
Then pour into your greased and lined pan and set it in the fridge for 2 hour or until hardened.
After it's chilled, remove from the pan by pulling up on the parchment paper. Use a sharp knife to cut into bars.
