Almond Butter Butterscotch Squares

One of the blogs I read often is A Southern Grace. The other day was posted a different looking recipe for Butterscotch Fudge.

As I read the recipe it piqued my interest because it had an ingredient in it called Barney Butter. I have no clue what Barney Butter is. So I did a search on Barney Butter and it revealed it is Almond Butter. Naturally I had to try the recipe.

My grocery store doesn't carry anything named Barney so I just picked up a jar of Almond Butter and the rest of the ingredients. It's incredibly easy to make, and is just delicious. The addition of the Almond Butter gives it a certain flavor and texture that is different but blends well with the butterscotch chips. Adding marshmallows without melting them, as in normal, fudge also helps make these unique.

Try them, I bet you like them, and thanks to the Southern Grace site for such a neat recipe. (I changed the name slightly because they are more bar like than fudge like, at least when I baked them)


1 cup Almond Butter
1 stick butter
1 bag butterscotch chips (11 ounces)
1 bag mini marshmallows (11 ounces or so)

Melt butter and almond butter in bowl in 30 second microwave bursts until melted. Mix well.

Add chips and continue to mix and heat in 30 second microwave bursts until melted. Again, mix well.

Add marshmallows and mix in thoroughly.

Line a 9 x 9 baking dish with wax paper along the bottom and up the sides.

Spoon the mixture into the dish and spread evenly across the pan and into all corners.

Refrigerate for an hour until firm.

Using the wax paper, lift the fudge out of the dish and onto a cutting board. Cut into squares into whatever size you like.

Enjoy. Trust me, these will disappear.

Hi Ron,

Nifty little recipe! When I first saw the picture, I thought they had puffed wheat in them (the marshmallows kind of look like that). I wonder how that would taste. A little crunchier perhaps? Or one could add rice crispies? Now you've got me thinking of variations and I haven't even made the original yet! Thank you.
