Marie biscuit squares recipe

Posted by on October 18, 2012 | Tags: ,

Some recipes never get old.  I remember as a kid, buying the chocolate marie biscuit squares at the local fete and on a recent camping trip when a friend pulled out a large tub of the deathly sweet treat, everyone mused over fond memories of their mom baking/assembling a batch of these quick and easy treats.  Needless to say, the large batch was annihilated in seconds and the biscuit recipe shared out between the moms.


These Marie biscuit squares are perfect to pull together with the kids.  Perfect for bake sales, bakers day and kids parties or just to have on hand for when hubby is poking around the pantry, looking for something to satisfy the sweet tooth.  With Christmas only 13 weeks away, these sweet treats could make a thoughtful gift packaged neatly in a consol jar.


Marie Biscuit Chocolate Squares


  • 250g butter
  • 500g icing sugar
  • ½ cup good quality cocoa
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 packet Marie biscuits broken into pieces



  1. Melt the butter in a big pot and when completely melted, take off the heat and add icing sugar and cocoa and mix well.
  2. Now stir in the beaten egg mixture and mix until smooth.
  3. Add the biscuits and fold it in until all the biscuits are covered with chocolate.
  4. Pour out into a pan and flatten the mixture with a spatula.
  5. When it has cooled down, cut into squares and keep in an airtight container.


Serve with a big glass of cold milk and make sure to keep this recipe safe for future generation chocolate lovers!

I love vintage everything (clothes, glassware, furniture, jewelry) and hunting for these treasure. Flowers in tea cups or buckets or just flowers in general (peonies are my favourite). Taking pictures, looking at pictures or just looking at something that will make a beautiful picture. Baking beautiful things is how I like to treat my family and friends. -
