Heavenly Hash Squares

This is a delightful old-fashioned candy. If you wish, you may drop the candy by large tablespoonsful onto a wax-paper lined cookie sheet instead of cutting them into squares.

This has been a favorite Easter recipe for a long time.


  • 1 (12 ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips*
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups dry roasted unsalted peanuts**
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) package miniature marshmallows*

Use colored marshmallows if making for Easter.


  1. Line a 9 x 13-inch pan with wax paper.
  2. Melt chocolate chips and butter with the sweetened condensed milk in top of a double boiler.
  3. In large bowl, place the marshmallows and peanuts and fold in the melted chocolate mixture. Pour into prepared pan.
  4. Chill for approximately 1 1/2 hours, remove from refrigerator and slice. After slicing, return to refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove from pan and place on serving tray.
  6. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

* Butterscotch chips may be substituted.

** Pecans, walnuts or almonds may be substituted or use all three instead of peanuts.
