p>another birthday survived! less effort put into this one; last year i near killed myself with painting decor, and games, cooking for 15 kids + assorted parents, and the whole nine yards. this time, i limited the list to 6 kids, and made it a 2-hour event at a distinctly non-meal time of day. cake recipe was the same as last year's lion (louise's party cake, plus a triple recipe of salted caramel frosting), and the cake was in the shape of two lego bricks.

but the real hit of the party was something called "sally stupid," a rich sweet yummy square that melts in your mouth. easy and kinda trashy but so yum. we call it "sally stupid" because the woman (sally) who gave the recipe to my mum forgot to write down the name.

sally stupid

1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
350g butterscotch chips
roughly half a bag of mini marshmallows

melt together the peanut butter, butter, and butterscotch chips. pour in a greased 8"x8" pan.

when somewhat cool but still soft, arrange marshmallows in a single layer on top. chill in fridge.

when good and solid, heat the broiler, and brown the tops of the marshmallows. watch them like a hawk, you don't want to overdo it.
