I’m in love.
Yes.. that’s right. LOVE.
And it happens every damn year around this time.
I’m in love for about a month.. month and half… and then we breakup. It’s the same old thing every year. You’d think I’d get tired of those messy shenanigans right?
Around the middle of November, my mind starts to flash intermittently on images of years past with the great times we had. The smiles I smiled, the happiness I expressed, (sometimes even with a little dance), the loving looks that always linger longer than they should.
I get weak. I forget the previous year’s ugliness with the breakup. By December, I’m full into it.
I long.. I pine. I cannot stand it any longer.
I fall in love, all over again for another year. With who you ask? Not so much with who, but more with what.
Yes my dear readers, with the simple
BUTTERSCOTCH CONFETTI SQUARE.
Obviously you know I’m over exaggerating.
(ok.. KINDA over exaggerating.)
Anyway – Truth is, is that the lowly confetti square treat is probably my most favorite Christmas “baking” to eat. Easy as hell to make and when you take your first bite.. peanut buttery, butterscotchy devine-ness… sweet,… smooth, …it melts in your mouth with the sweet whisper of “hello again, Lover”.
Add the pillowy texture of fruity mini marshmallows and you pretty much have the reason why love was invented.
I LOVE this dessert. But we always have to breakup after Christmas because well, with any good relationship, you don’t want to burn out on each other, and well… the unhealthyness of it all. OMG, the calories!
If I didn’t stop eating it, I’d be like some 800lb strung out dessert addict shoving a bag of mini marshmallows in my pants at Safeway so I could go home and make my next hit.
So, we have our little love affair for the season, and in the new year, we say goodbye.
I just don’t want to think about that part right now.
Butterscotch Confetti Squares
Ok. Here we go:
1. In a super cute pot like mine, melt 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
3. Mix till melted and let cool a bit. DO NOT DRINK. It is NOT a beverage!
4. Add 1 bag mini marshmallows. Do you like the action shot?
Take heed. Your love affair will begin after the first bite,
but don’t come crying to me when you can’t stop. I warned you.
