Whether you find yourself with a hard to shake a case of the munchies, or you just want to dapple with edibles for a unique experience, easy to make desserts are an excellent go-to choice for both beginner cooks and seasoned chefs alike. A foolproof recipe that will feed a crowd can be hard to come by, especially if you have a specific color or flavor theme in mind, but peanut butter marshmallow squares are an excellent place to start.

What are they?

These cannabis-infused nutty marshmallow squares are different than most because they include the sweet crunch of rice crispies along with a hearty dose of marshmallows, which are held tightly together with a thick, sticky, and sweet layer of peanut butter. They are rich dessert squares that should be enjoyed in small portions, especially if you’re worried about calories because they ring in at a pretty high count.

The magic ingredient

The ingredient that we use to infuse this marshmallow treats is cannabutter, which is really easy to make, and even simpler to use. Once you get this recipe down, you’ll find that it’s much less complicated to make edibles than most people realize, which might be enough to inspire you to create your very own repertoire of cannabutter fueled goodies.

Look out sweet tooth because a solution is here! These incredible edibles will get you high, but that’s not what’s so amazing about them. It’s the fact that the strong sugary flavors easily mask the undertones that are often present in edibles that make it one of the best, so you can stuff your face without having to choke down something that doesn’t quite taste as you’d expect.

Preparation time: 2 hours

Calories: 267

Servings: 12


  • 8 cups mini marshmallows
  • 2 cups butterscotch chips
  • 1 ½ cups rice crispies
  • 1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • ½ cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
  • ½ cup cannabutter


  • Saucepan
  • Spoon
  • Wax paper
  • 9x113 baking dish


  1. Add the cannabutter and peanut butter to a saucepan and let them melt together over medium heat.

  2. Once both ingredients have been reduced to a liquid, it’s time to add the butterscotch chips to the pan.

  3. Stir the mixture frequently and continue to cook it over medium heat until the chips are completely melted.

  4. Remove the saucepan from the burner and then set it on the counter for a few minutes to cool down.

  5. Once the saucepan is cool enough that you can touch it comfortably with your hands, add in the rice crispies and mini chocolate chips.

  6. Use a spoon to stir everything together until the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

  7. Next, evenly distribute the marshmallows, throughout the gooey goodness, then line a 9x13 baking pan with wax paper.

  8. Pour the peanut butter and marshmallow mix into the baking pan and use another sheet of wax paper to press any air bubbles out of the thick layer.

  9. Leave the wax paper as a cover and set the pan in the fridge to cool for approximately 2 hours.

Once you have a solid brick of marshmallow and peanut butter, divide it into 12 equal portions for a perfect snack-sized treat.

Best suited occasions for these sweet marshmallow squares

Marshmallow squares don’t have to be saved for a special occasion, as they store well long term, so if you make a batch just for yourself, they will always be ready and waiting for when a craving hits, but of course, like all things made with weed, they are much better when they’re shared among friends. That is why they are the perfect option for birthdays, anniversaries, Easter, weddings, funerals, Christmas, and all of the smaller holidays and events that fall in between.
