  • For Base:.
  • Melt butter over low heat in medium saucepan.
  • Add beaten eggs, sugar and coconut.
  • Cook over very low heat, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  • Add graham crumbs and nuts and stir to combine.
  • Fold in marshmallows.
  • Spread in a buttered 9 inch square pan.
  • Chill until firm, about 45 minutes, then frost with Icing.
  • Lemon Buttercream Icing:.
  • In medium bowl, beat butter until soft and fluffy with hand mixer.
  • Alternately blend in sugar and lemon juice gradually.
  • Add milk or cream and continue beating until icing is white and creamy.
  • You may need to add a little more lemon juice to get the right consistency. You want a fairly thick, but spreadable, creamy icing.
  • Spread icing on cooled base.
  • Refrigerate another 30 minutes until icing is set, and cut into 1 inch squares.

  1. My husband always talked about this wonderful square that his mom used to make but I could never find the recipe until now. He was thrilled. Thank-you Chef Beek.
  2. Oh my God! These are better than you know what! :) After making these, I immediately made another batch (after eating the first). They were so easy to make. Looks like it is back to the gym for me. :)


I am soon to be married to my best friend, and we both consider ourselves "foodies". We enjoy good food, and I love to try and recreate dishes that I try while we've been out to eat. I love to cook, and am usually quite good at it, thanks to my mom who taught me well. We love to travel, and I'm not usually afraid to try new foods. We enjoy spending time at our lakeside cottage with friends and family also.
