Tempt My Tummy Tuesday : Mile-High Squares

Blessed with Grace

One of the things I am doing to reduce our grocery bill is making my own treats instead of buying packages of cookies. I was shocked when I looked at how much I spent every month on packages of cookies (my husband IS the cookie monster)! I have discovered that making my own treats saves money, taste better and they last longer. I know many of you realize this little fact already, but I am guilty of buying too many convenience foods.

I tried this recipe off of a Nestle Toll House Butterscotch Morsel bag and oh my...yummy! I am not a huge fan of butterscotch, but this recipe adds chocolate and peanut butter so the butterscotch is not the star of the show.

Chocolate Marshmallow Mile-High Squares

  • 2 cups Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels (I used milk chocolate ones)

  • 1 2/3 cups Nestle Toll House Butterscotch Flavored Morsels

  • 1/2 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter (I used creamy)

  • 9 cups mini marshmallows

  • 1 cup peanuts

Line 13 x 9 inch baking pan with foil

Microwave both flavors of morsels and peanut butter in a large, uncovered, microwave safe bowl on med-high for about 2 minutes; Stir. If necessary, microwave at additional 10-15 second intervals until melted. Cool for 1 minute. Stir in marshmallows and peanuts.

Spread into prepared pan. Refrigerate until firm. Cut into squares.

I kept them in a sealed container in the refrigerator once they were cut into squares...yummy!
