Every year at Christmas my mom would make these squares with colored marshmallows, chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips, plus a few other things. I think they’re officially called ‘Confetti Squares’? I’ve always loved them and they always bring back memories of Christmas.
You’re probably wondering why I’m talking about Christmas.
Well, up until last year I never knew my sister didn’t like these squares. I was shocked! She says it’s the butterscotch chips that she doesn’t like. So, this year I wanted to make them for her but substitute the butterscotch chips with peanut butter chips. I felt it was my job to make her like them just as much as I do!
Unfortunately, I didn’t get around to making them with the peanut butter chips this year so I still don’t know if I can convince her to love Confetti Squares. What I did get around to making this week, though, were these Shortbread Rocky Road Bars (Squares, whatever you want to call them) that reminded me of those Confetti Squares.
I had so many shortbread cookies in the freezer left over from Christmas that I wanted to use them up. I also got a new cookbook where I found this great recipe that I’m sure my sister would love……no butterscotch chips involved! The only thing is, my sister lives almost 2 hours away and, well…… they’re all gone!
