peanut butter + marshmallows = low fat?

According to Dr. Mom one of my fave treats-to-squish-into-the-highchair as a kid  is also low in fat, stays fresh forever, requires no baking and best of all? only 4 ingredients!

Melt in your mouth peanut butter marshmallow squares…droolicious!

 4 ingredients & 4 quick steps to make your own:

Grab 200g of marshmallows, 1/2 cup butter (or margarine), 1 cup peanut butter (no sugar added!), 300g  of chocolate (butterscotch chips are awesome too!)

Melt butter, chocolate & peanut butter together over a low heat.

Once melted, remove from heat & let cool for a minute or two.

If using regular sized marshmallows cut them into bite sized bits….

add them to your melty mixture & mix well.

Pour into a non-stick (or lightly oiled) pan.

Refrigerate for an hour or two.

Once set, remove from fridge…

Slice and try to eat just one!

**The low-fat low down: this recipe yields 40 pieces, IF (& it’s a big if) you  manage to cut it exactly right each 21 gram square will have a mere 7 grams of fat…
