Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares

This is one of the easiest desserts to make! Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares. No-bake & 5 ingredients!

My sister was making this one day & so I had her tell me how to make it! She found out from her friend so I do not know where this recipe originated from but it is delish! Melted chocolate chips, butterscotch chips & peanut butter mixed together, then you add some peanuts & mini marshmallows. Chill, cut & enjoy! I used smooth peanut butter but you can use crunchy peanut butter if you prefer! I cut this into squares & then froze them! They were good frozen but did not take long to soften up if you do not like to eat frozen treats!

Here is the recipe


1 bag of chocolate chips

1 bag of butterscotch chips

1 cup peanut butter

1/2-1 cup peanuts

mini marshmallows, you can use as much as you want! 1/2 – 1 full bag


1 9 x13 pan Spray with non-stick spray

  1. In a large bowl, melt the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips & peanut butter together. Mix together until well combined
  2. Add the peanuts, mix
  3. Add the marshmallows & stir them in until all of the marshmallows are coated with the peanut butter mixture
  4. Pour into the greased pan
  5. Chill in the refrigerater until firm
  6. Cut into squares, any size you want!


No-Bake Peanut Butter Squares

This No-Bake Peanut Butter Square recipe is from Kraft Canada. I had everything I needed in my pantry so that made this very  easy. It  only took a few minutes to put together. The chilling time was the longest part of this recipe.

I printed out this recipe in 2008 & on the paper I have written in a bright colours sharpie {this is the peanut butter squares everyone likes!) I like to make it for company on any dessert platter & also just to have for a snack! 

The ingredients are easy…nothing special, but when combines!! They are delish! Butter, graham wafer crumbs, icing sugar & peanut butter…then chocolate chips! So good 

This No-Bake Peanut Butter Square takes minutes to make & has to chill a bit to firm up 

Here is the recipe  from Kraft Canada. note: I used chocolate chips instead of baking chocolate that was in the original recipe 


1/2 cup butter

2 cups icing sugar 

1 1/2 cups graham wafer squares

1 cup peanut butter 

12 oz chocolate chips 


Line a 13 x 9 baking dish with parchment paper with some overhang so you can pull the squares up out of the dish to cut

  1. Melt the butter, then add the icing sugar..sift it into the bowl to get rid of any lumps
  2. Add the graham wafer squares & peanut butter. Mix well until completely combined 
  3. Pat this evenly into the prepared 9 x 13 dish
  4. Melt the chocolate & let it cool briefly then spread it over the base
  5. Let this cool & then cut partially into squares.. the recipe recommends cutting this into 40 squares but of course you can cut the squares any size you want
  6. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour
  7. Lift the squares out of the pan & cut all the way through



Caramel Graham Wafer Squares

This recipe is very similar to the cracker/matzoh caramel crunch recipes we all love  The first time I had them was when my sisters’ mother-in-law made them in the early 70’s. I do not make them very often but I think that I will…you know what happens to me…I move on to new recipes & forget the old this blog has given me a reason to go through my books  re-visit some of the delicious recipes I have from years ago

Caramel Graham Wafer Squares

Here is the recipe

Graham Cracker Squares 


13 whole graham wafers ***amount will depend on the size of cookie sheet you will use

1 cup butter, cut into chunks

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup slivered almonds

1/2 tsp coarse salt


1. Preheat oven to 350F

2. Line a 9 x 14 inch cookie sheet with parchment paper

3. Line the cookie sheet with the graham wafer squares on top of the parchment paper in a single layer

4. Put  the butter, brown sugar and vanilla  into a medium size saucepan

5. Over medium heat, cook the butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth and well combined. Stir often to avoid burning. ***I let mine gently boil for about 1-2 minutes to make sure it was well cooked

6. After it is cooked, pour the mixture evenly over the graham wafers. Use the back of a spoon to spread it out making sure all of the graham wafers are covered right to the edges.

7.. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 minutes

8. Remove from the oven and spread slivered almonds evenly oner the entire top *** if adding chocolate let cool for about 5 minutes… then sprinkle approximately 1  cup of chocolate chips over top, then as they soften spread the chocolate evenly all over.

9. Sprinkle coarse salt evenly over the almonds.

10. Let cool for  about 10 minutes then cut into squares.  I usually loosen the cut squares a bit from the pan before cooling as they can be a bit difficult once really cold to lift off the pan because the sugar sticks to the parchment.  Cool completely before eating

****Be careful not to handle them while hot, as the caramel can easily burn you!
