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

MY REVIEW

I thought it was just okay. Not sure if I'd make it again. 4 stars because my husband really liked it.

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!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 9, 2010

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.
