Strawberry Chiffon Squares

Strawberry Chiffon Squares
These Strawberry Chiffon Squares are melt in your mouth delicious, especially now that’s it’s mid-summer! Speaking of summer, this is our first summer in Illinois and it seems really hot and humid. No lakes to cool off in, unlike Minnesota. But because there aren’t lakes where we live, there aren’t a ton of mosquitoes.

Thanks to everyone who entered my birthday giveaway last week and helped celebrate my birthday!

Strawberry Chiffon Squares
Note: Using 1 whole bag of mini marshmallows and 16oz of Cool Whip will make a lot of the top jello mixture. I haven’t tried this yet, but next time I think I will use 1/2 or 3/4 bag of mini marshmallows and 1 8oz tub of Cool Whip.

Strawberry Chiffon Squares
These strawberry chiffon squares ended up being served up-side down because the graham cracker bottom is slightly crumbly, but the rest is so good!

And aren’t those corner pieces beautiful for photographing? Maybe that’s the photographer/foodie geek coming out in me!
