Marshmallow Christmas Squares

Pin It

Go ahead... take a bite

I don't know about you, but "crunch time" is upon me.  I don't know where the time has gone this year, but it is just literally flying by.  One minute it was November and now it's just a few days before Christmas... "WHAT"??

Are you feeling the crunch too?  Do you still have a zillion mini things to do and baking?  Well my friends, you have come to the right place.  I have an absolutely outstanding NON BAKED treat for you.  When I say "outstanding", I mean just that.  It's absolutely delicious!!  It has marshmallows and graham cracker crumbs, maraschino cherries, coconut and that love of mine... you remember, I wanted to marry it a while back, sweetened condensed milk.  That is it, no I'm not joking.  Look at how scrumptious this looks, and the taste?  Oh my heaven's is all I am going to say!! Kids and adults alike will absolutely dig into this and it will be gone before you know it, YES!!  
You will be a superstar and you didn't even have to pull out the mixer!!

Ready for the recipe?  Here we go;

Prep time: 20 minutes
Bake time: None
Setting time: 24 hours
Yield: 18-24 squares

1 bag miniature marshmallows
1 can sweetened condensed milk (I used Eaglebrand)
2 cups graham wafer crumbs
Dash of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup chopped maraschino cherries
2 1/2 cups shredded coconut

-Using your favorite brownie pan, pre-spray pan, set aside.

-In a large bowl add all your ingredients except for the sweetened milk.

-Toss and mix so all the cherries and marshmallows have been distributed evenly.

-Let's add in that amazing milk.  Mix thoroughly so all the ingredients are coated with the milk. You might also want to take a small wee teaspoon and just, you know... taste a little.

-Take your coconut and divide in half.  Place half the coconut on the bottom only of your pan.  Add marshmallow mixture on top of the shredded coconut.  
Now sprinkle the remaining shredded coconut over the top.
Press the marshmallow mixture evenly and firmly.  By pressing your actually adhering the shredded coconut onto the marshmallow cherry mixture.    

-That is is, no I'm not joking, seriously!!  How easy was that right?  Plus it tastes absolutely "outta this world"!!

-Place in refrigerator and let set for 24 hours.  That my friend's is the hardest part...
I mean all you want to do is pick on the coconut, and maybe pull at a marshmallow, just a small one, no-one will know a thing.  "Oh wait, that's me"! *grin*

-After 24 hours cut into squares.

The sacrifices we make for our loved ones...
