How to Bake Marshmallow Squares

Marshmallow Squares are a tasty dessert I love to make & enjoy around the Holiday Season.

cloudsThese pretty squares have a lovely texture & flavor, with a marshmallow layer like a cloud. Believe me, they’ll disappear quickly!

Perfect for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, baby & wedding showers. Try making green ones for St. Patrick’s Day. 😉
