My mom has some great recipes that remind me of growing up and sneaking into the freezer with my sister for a treat! So it seems fair that I share two of my favourite recipes for easy dessert squares! They are a huge crown pleaser, with requests each holiday for my mom to make them...best part...they freeze beautifully!
Melt ¼ cup of butter in square cake tin. Add 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs. Stir and mix well and press to create a crust.
Pour the following in layers:
1 cup choc chips
1 cup coconut
1 ½ cups of white mini marshmallows
½ cup of chopped nuts ( I use sliced almonds)
Drizzle 1 can of Eagle Brand Sweetened Milk on the top and bake at 350°F for approx 25 minutes or until golden brown.

No-Bake Social Tea Marshmallow Squares
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
Mix in a double boiler and stir. Cook 8 minutes. Beat with a spoon until creamy. Cool slightly and add ¾ pkg. of coloured marshmallows. Crush and add 30 Social Tea biscuits (don’t pulverize them). Mix well and press into a buttered pan and refrigerate.
Alternatively.... create an even MORE decadent treat by adding 1 cup of peanut butter and 11oz of butterscotch chips!
