Butterscotch Marshmallow Squares || Colorful, fudgy, butterscotch squares, loaded with mini marshmallows and crushed social tea cookies.
The long weekend is upon us and I say it’s time to break out the goodies. Easter chocolates, decadent desserts (like these oh so good butterscotch marshmallows squares made with social tea cookies and colorful mini marshmallows), and of course calorie-loaded apps and entrees. Next week we’ll eat only salad, ok?
The color palette of these sweet, butterscotchy, almost fudge-like squares is as Easter compliant as it gets. They also happen to be a kid favorite. Pretty pastel marshmallows are hard for kids (and adults) to resist. Truth.
How to make these butterscotch marshmallow squares with social tea cookies:
- Add 45 social tea cookies to a food processor and pulse into almost fine crumbs. Alternatively, add social tea cookies to an extra large ziplock bag, seal and use a rolling pin to crush into crumbs. Set aside.
- In a double boiler (or a very heavy bottomed pot) over low heat, combine sugar and beaten eggs. Add in the butter (cut into smaller cubes), vanilla, and a pinch of kosher salt. Stir frequently for 25 minutes, until the mixture becomes thick and creamy. Do NOT bring to a boil.
- Remove from heat and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Once cooled, stir in the social tea cookie crumbs, followed by the mini marshmallows.
- Pour the mixture into a greased or parchment-lined 9 x 9-inch baking pan and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Cut into squares and devour.
