This sinfully decadent treat is the perfect combination of salty and sweet. Chipped Rainbow Marshmallow Squares – gooey, crunchy deliciousness in no time.
I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my dear, treasured friends, specifically those who come for a weekend at the cottage with bags (and bags!) of munchies, treats and goodies. These Chipped Rainbow Marshmallow Squares have been created in honour of them.
Let me describe how weekends always begin: everyone usually arrives at the cottage by dinnertime on Friday evening. We start with some welcome cocktails and good wine while pulling dinner together. After we eat, it’s time for lively conversation while playing cards and games, often stretching into the wee hours. Around this time everyone starts congregating in the kitchen – some looking for a salty snack, others craving something sweet.
It was during one of these weekends that we invented this wicked concoction. I grabbed various bags of munchies and treats brought by our friends and hoped that tossing them together – as if we were making cereal marshmallow squares – would work. Boy, did it ever!
There are no special tips for this recipe; the ingredients and instructions are all straightforward.
There’s just one point I can’t stress enough – enjoy them without the guilt!
The best late night snack imaginable – Chipped Rainbow Marshmallow Squares – a crazy, salty/sweet taste sensation, perfect any time!
Grease an 8x11” glass casserole dish with some butter.
Preheat a large pot on medium-high heat. Add butter and immediately reduce heat to medium.
Add marshmallows and stir constantly until melted. Stir in vanilla. Lightly crush potato chips in the bag and then add to the pot, stirring lightly until coated. Add M&Ms and stir again.
Spoon into casserole dish and tamp down into an even layer. Cool for 30 minutes before cutting into squares.
Listening to great music is an essential part of every Weekend at the Cottage. This is one of my favourite albums to play late night – easy vibe, great instrumentals, talented vocalists. Head to iTunes to download Late Night Tales to your collection.
