When you think of Christmas baking – do you envision cookies or does your mouth start watering as you think about all those pans of squares that are made?

We had a great Week 1 in the Sweet Swap! Thank you everyone for sharing your recipes on pinterest, here and on my author page! This week we’re going to focus on squares – so if you have any awesome recipes you would like to share – please do! And remember – there’s a prize at the end of the week! At the bottom of this post is last weeks winner 🙂

I’m a day late in posting this recipe and the winner from last week – my husband and I did an ‘last minute’ holiday with the kids to Disneyland. The weather here at home was in the -30’s with the windchill – and we couldn’t wait to escape to the warm weather in California. Imagine our surprise when we got there and found we had to wear our sweaters and wished for mitts. BRR…it was cold (although, not as cold as home).


Back to the topic at hand…squares. My mom recently sent me containers of her baking. Our package came while I was out of the house and so by the time I got to the container there were hardly any cookies left…but my kids did leave me at least 1 piece of my favorite square….a Peanut Butter Marshmallow Square. This is probably a ‘must have’ in our household – especially at Christmas.

You can add some cocoa to this mix (add it to the peanut butter mixture) so that it becomes a Chocolate Peanut Butter square. Trust me – it’s delicious!
