Friday Night Fun

Marshmallows and toothpicks were a big hit with everyone! I never buy marshmallows so I'm sure that added to the excitement. And then I made my Nan's Marshmallow Squares to round out the evening. I think this is pretty much the recipe. I think I threw out the original because I thought I would never make them again. But I did. And they were good.

Ruth's Marshmallow Squares
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 stick butter
1 bag miniature marshmallows
Melt 1 stick butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Add peanut butter to melted butter, then add bag of chocolate chips to partially melted peanut butter and melted butter; stir frequently to blend mixture thoroughly until completely melted to a pourable consistency. While mixture is melting, evenly spread miniature marshmallows over the bottom of 8x12 inch (medium size) glass baking dish (no need to grease).

When completely melted and mixed, pour over marshmallows in dish and spread until even. Allow to chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving; cut into desired size bars and eat!
