Chocolate Confetti Bars

I think everyone has a recipe for Chocolate Confetti Bars, but may call it by a different name. This vintage recipe has been around a long time. I remember seeing it often at our local church bake sales. There’s a reason why it’s stood the test of time: they are easy to make and delicious!

I make mine with a mixture of butterscotch chips and chocolate chips plus a little bit of peanut butter. Coloured mini marshmallows add a pop of chewy sweetness and just look pretty. These no-bake bars are always a hit around Christmas and great if you are participating in a baking exchange.

I love making them because they are SO EASY! On hot days, I don’t feel like baking elaborate desserts….ok I don’t like making elaborate desserts, period! They are silky, melt-in-your-mouth good.

I’d love to hear about your recipes. How do you make these simple bars?
