I Heart Faces - Desserts

My entry this week for I Heart Faces :

These are butterscotch bars. They have butterscotch chips, peanut butter and marshmallow in them. REALLY easy to make!


My brother LOVES these things. He hyperventilates when I make them!

Head on over to iheartfaces.com to see all the other yummy desserts!





A few of you asked for the recipe. You can make a variety of different versions of this .To tell you the truth I just make it up as I go. Here is a general recipe for these ones.

  • 2 cups of butterscotch chips (you can use 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of butterscotch chips instead if you want to add some chocolatey goodness)
  • 3-4 tbsp. of smooth peanut butter
  • 3 cups of marshmallows (rough estimate)
  1. Melt the first two ingredients in a pot on medium-low heat. (make sure you don't burn it!)
  2. Take pot off the burner after the ingredients are melted. Let cool for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add marshmallows and coat evenly. Put in a square greased pan.
  4. Refrigerate until they are hardened.
  5. Cut up and enjoy!
Let me know how they turn out if you decide to make them! 

Someone also asked what lens I used. I used the one that my camera came with. It's called an AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6G. Basically the cheapest one you can get! I've started to save for a new one. Any suggestions?
