I've made these easy berry squares for many, many years and they never fail to bring raves from people of all ages. I'm always being asked for the recipe! When things get really busy, I like the convenience of being able to make this fuss-free treat a day ahead of time. —Barbara Robbins, Chandler, Arizona

"We thought it was very good. Would like to try it with cherries also raspberries."

"Not bad. I used frozen blueberries instead of fresh, so they may have come out more tart than intended. Besides that, the flavors in the bar are balanced really well. The only thing I'm not sure about is the marshmallows. They made the texture a bit weird. It sounds like it's hard to make, but it's actually pretty easy."

"My family and I thought this was terrible. The only reason we can give it 2 stars is because our neighbors who were over for dinner liked it."

"I would do a graham cracker crust in my opinion. I didn't like the vanilla wafers but the blueberry topping was just awesome! Liked the marshmellows."

"I've been making this since its publication in 2007, and it's one of my favorites. I love blueberries, so I'm always glad to find a good recipe that features them. I am not a marshmallow fan, so I was skeptical at first, but in this recipe, I love them."

"Great recipe. I was a little concerned about how the marshmellows would work, but they blended in well and they added a different kind of texture when you are enjoying the dessert."

"P.S. This blueberry topping can also be doubled as a delicious pie filling during the plentiful blueberry season. During winter, frozen blueberries work really well whatever variation of this recipe you choose!"

"This excellent recipe gets rave reviews wherever it goes. I have also successfully layered it as a trifle, doubling the blueberry and marshmallow layers & doubling the butter in the crust (to assist with firming up the "crust" layer in the fridge). Whichever way it's made, this "stumble-upon" recipe has become an all-time friend & family favorite."
