Marshmallow Puffs

Here's a fun recipe we tried the other day when we had a bag of marshmallows that was going stale. Start by lining a 9x9" pan with foil, greasing it, and placing 36 marshmallows in it. Then melt some chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter together.
The microwave didn't work (too stiff) so we tried the double boiler.
Still too stiff so we added more butter until it was of pourable consistency.
After pouring it over the marshmallows, bang the pan a few times so the chocolate settles.
Then put it in the fridge while you go have a family night lesson.
Take it out and peel back the foil, then cut between the marshmallows and eat it!
Here's the original recipe from CDKitchen for Marshmallow Puffs:
36 large marshmallows
1 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
2 tablespoons butter or margarine

Line a 9-in. square pan with foil; grease the foil well. Arrange marshmallows in a single layer in the prepared pan. In a double boiler over hot water, melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Pour over the marshmallows. Chill completely. Cut between marshmallows.
Note: I ended up adding another 4 tablespoons of butter. Maybe the water content of my chocolate or peanut butter was too high; I don't know. And this is definitely a candy, not the cookie/dessert that I was originally searching for. But they're delicious!
