Butterscotch Bars

Another family tradition. Nobody makes anything like them….well, not until I shared the recipe with everyone I know…... They are always a hit, and the easiest candy on my holiday list to make.

2 eggs, beaten
1 cup sugar
¾ cup butter
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 cups chopped walnuts (optional….but I love them!)
2 ½ cups graham crackers crumbs (hint: break them up in your blender!)
1 6-ounce package butterscotch chips (or one cup)
2 Tbsp smooth peanut butter

Combine eggs, sugar, and butter in saucepan. Bring to rolling boil and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and cool. Add marshmallows, nuts, and graham cracker crumbs. Pat mixture into 9x13 pan. In microwave safe bowl, heat butterscotch chips at half temperature for about 30 second intervals. Stir between each heating until the chips have melted smooth. Stir in peanut butter; mix well. Spread over crumb mixture. When cooled, cut into 1”x2” bars. These store best in the refrigerator.
