Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares

Chocolate Peanut Marshmallow Squares - Easter dessert

Using only four ingredients, these Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares might be considered children’s food, and they are, in fact, so easy to make that even a kid could do it with supervision. No matter who makes them, they’re delicious and everyone seems to love them.

Please note that this recipe makes two times the amount shown here.  I didn’t have a 9 x 13 inch pan, so used two smaller ones.  The recipe can be halved, though, by simply cutting the amounts of each ingredient in half. ↑


Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares

  • 1 bag (approx. 5 cups) mini marshmallows. Coloured ones are pretty, but plain would taste just as good.
  • 1 bag (approx. 2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • 1 cup peanut butter. I like to use crunchy but smooth works well too.
  • 1/3 cup butter (the regular salted type) – Note : I originally made these with 1/2 cup of butter (and these pictures were taken then), but now I make them with 1/3 cup and they work out fine. It’s up to you how much you use.

In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter, chocolate chips and peanut butter together until smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly (so the marshmallows won’t melt). Stir in the marshmallows to thoroughly coat them all with the chocolate peanut mixture. Turn the mixture out into a buttered 9 x 13 pan (which I didn’t have, so I used two smaller dishes.)

Pop this into the freezer for about 15 minutes so they will be easier to cut. Cut them into squares and enjoy! These store very well in a covered container in the fridge.

        Since I happened to make these at this time of year, I am showing them with a Christmas motif, however I can see these as a lovely Easter time treat as well. Actually, these could be an any-time-of-the-year treat. I hope you enjoy them!

        Thanks for checking out my recipe.
