I think the 50/50 butterscotch/chocolate chips is a mistake...the butterscotch adds an overly sweet off taste to the mix. Everyone knows pb and chocolate are the match we're looking for! Otherwise, a solid and simple recipe.

We really love these treats. I also like that they don't have any karo syrup in them. They are great just the way they are

The only recipe I will use now. It took 3 minutes in the microwave for the marshmallows and 3 minutes to melt the chocolate. I only put it in the fridge for a half hour to harden up the chocolate. They were easy to cut and eat.
