court to the rescue…peanut butter marshmallow squares

May 22, 2009

We love the kitchy campy peanut butter marshmallow squares.  But whenever we make them, they are all grainy and the marshmallows are not at all distributed evenly and are solidly packed on the top of the square.

Last week, the Take it and like it blog posted a recipe for the beloved squares.  I posted a comment about our peanut butter marshmallow square troubles, and Court provided the following solution:

Hi Suz, I think that heating the PB slowly and stopping as soon as the chips have combined help keep it from getting grainy, but it could also be that I use cheap PB for baking 🙂 Keeping the marshmallows from rising is easier, you just wait until the PB mixture has cooled as much as possible. If it is warm, the marshmallows will float up like in hot chocolate

VOILA!  Perfect squares followed.  Hurrah for Edmonton food bloggers!  Thanks, Court…

    Yay! They only last a couple days at my house too. The little viking in my picture is meant to be my husband (who is Danish, and therefore a viking) who sneaks them all out of the freezer before I even know they are gone.
