Chocolate Granola Marshmallow Squares with Oreo Buttercream and a Fresh Strawberry

The cool days this week were so lovely that I was caught off-guard with today’s return of heat!  Nuts.

Today’s temperatures reminded me of a no-bake square I made recently.  This was a test-kitchen effort focused on cleaning out the odd bits and pieces in the pantry and fridge.  Think of it as Leftover Night… except this is dessert.

I started with some chocolate granola, the healthy kind, and mixed it with melted butter and marshmallows.DSC_0484 DSC_0485

In no time, this mix was cooling in my  Homer Laughlin Square Baker … lined with parchment paper.

As soon as it was room temperature, I smoothed on a layer of Oreo Buttercream that was leftover from this Chocolate Oreo Layer Cake.

Once the buttercream was firm (couple hours in the refrigerator), I lifted it from the baker and sat it on the cutting board.


Chocolate with more chocolate disguised as granola.  I’ll take that.

It was a matter of finding the right stage for capturing these sweet bits of marshmallow square fun.  I struggled.  I tried different table clothes, angles, dishes, …. A good snapshot finally showed up, but it took a while.


Fiesta Dinnerware is American made and has been produced for generations. The larger vase in this photo is the Small Flower Vase in Sage – the most recent color, the small Bud Vase is Sea Mist – a color produced 1991 to 2005, & the little compote dish in Green was made from 1936 to 1946.

It’s a luxury I get to engage in something that I love – creating desserts that taste really yummy and don’t look too bad either.

I get to do that because I have an amazing life partner and I’m sober.

Our people are crazy supportive, too.
