Chess Squares | A Delectable Treat

Growing up, my dad and I always shared this mutual sweet tooth for certain desserts. One being Banana Pudding, and the other being chess squares. Anytime those desserts were made, both of us would devour them. Even now, my brother in law will devour banana pudding as well!

Being that the Holidays are rapidly approaching us, I want to share this chess squares recipe with you. This makes such a delectable treat for any holiday celebration, and your tastebuds will thank you. Now, this isn’t the *healthiest* dessert out there, in fact it’s the opposite. But, sometimes there’s just desserts that you can’t get enough of no matter how unhealthy, and these chess squares are one of them!

In my not so humble opinion, these chess squares are amazing on their own, but they’re even better with some ice cream. Since we’re nearing the end of Summer, there’s no better time than now to try these chess squares with some of your favorite ice cream as an end of Summer delectable treat.
