Myra's notes for this recipe:
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!

Sweet... both in appearance and taste! Double the icing for even more special sweetness.


Melt and cool the 1/2 cup of butter and package of butterscotch chips.
Add coconut, peanut butter and marshmallows. Mix well.
Press into greased 9x9 pan.
Mix powdered sugar and remaining butter. Add milk by teaspoons until desired consistency. Add red coloring to make a nice shade of pink. Spread over squares and chill. Freezes well.

I didn't know butterscotch chips were around forty five years ago. I can't even get them now over here in Australia.
