A family "staple" at every gathering. My mother's famous (or infamous?) marshmallow peanut butter squares. None of us ever knew the true recipe name, hence the generic "pink slice". Forty-five years of family get-togethers and still going strong!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Sweet... both in appearance and taste! Double the icing for even more special sweetness.

butterscotch chips
1 c
finely grated coconut
1 c
peanut butter
1 pkg
multi-colored marshmallows
2 c
powdered sugar
1 tsp
butter or margarine
3
red food coloring drops
milk, enough to make good consistency of icing

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt and cool the 1/2 cup of butter and package of butterscotch chips.
2
Add coconut, peanut butter and marshmallows. Mix well.
3
Press into greased 9x9 pan.

Carole, I'm originally from Canada (Winnipeg)! I've done this recipe both in "Canadian" and "American" and it's worked out both ways so never fear, your measurements will be okay! This recipe does make a lot; I usually use several smaller pans/trays so that I can freeze them and use them as I need them. My last batch made two 9x6 trays, with some pot-scrapings left over for the cook!
