I’m not sure why it took us so long to put the two together – I mean… best of ALL the treat worlds right here. Donuts… peanut butter…. butterscotch….. marshmallows… yes, yes, yes, and…. yes.
Are they a bit of trouble to make…yes… they take a little investment of your time… BUT the rewards are SOOOO worth it. You’re going to be making a whole bunch of new friends with this recipe!
Peanut Butter Butterscotch Donuts
Prepare the donuts as per the original recipe up to point where you roll out the dough to cut it out. Instead of doing round donuts, I recommend making them square, although this is not necessary.
Let them rise and then continue on as per the recipe. Set them aside to cool.
While they are cooling, prepare the butterscotch dream square, as per the original recipe instructions.
Alternatively – you can prepare the original recipe but do not combine it to make the square. Leave the butterscotch peanut butter mixture in a bowl and dip the tops of your donuts in them!
Then sprinkle them with additional mini marshmallows and butterscotch chips.
If you prefer to make the square – once it has cooled and set, cut it into tiny squares a little smaller than the donuts themselves. Put a little bit of melted peanut butter on top of a donut and very gently press a square on top of it. Set aside to set.
Continue until all the donuts are covered!
Yes. They are sweet, in case you were wondering.
With the square on top it’s like you’re getting 2 ridiculous desserts in one. It’s a little less crazy if you just dip them and sprinkle on the marshmallows and chips – but still crazy.
This is one of those projects to tackle on a day when you have nothing else to do. You end up with a good sized batch though so all your hard work will be rewarded! Share with friends and neighbors – they’ll enjoy them too! 🙂
