Millionaire Squares Recipe

My family makes Millionaire Squares every Christmas, every potluck, every get-together. My mom and I also make them for bake sales. They are delicious and easy, you need only a handful of ingredients and they are definitely a popular treat!



It’s okay to reward yourself every now and then. These squares are not something we make or eat often. This year I have been really focusing on eating healthy 80% of the time, and 20% of the time I can have a little treat. These squares are perfect for that, and if I am worried I will over-indulge, I just freeze the rest.

Millionaire Squares
  • Crust:
  • ½ cup of melted butter
  • 2 cups crushed oatmeal cookies (We use Dad's brand, yum!)
  • Filling:
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup of chocolate chips
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • ¼ cup finely chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup peanuts
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Crush up oatmeal cookies. Melt ½ cup of butter, mix the cookies and butter together until your cookies are moist. Set aside ¼cup of the cookie mixture and press the rest into a 9x9 pan. Bake for 5minutes.
  3. Melt chocolate chips and butter together, and beat in the egg. Slowly add in the icing sugar 1-2 tablespoons at a time until it's all mixed together. Mix in your nuts, and then pour the mixture evenly onto your crust.
  4. Sprinkle the ¼cup of cookie mix you set aside on top.



  1. Yep — my first time hearing of these too. But, Wow! This recipe sounds great. I bet they’d make a wonderful gift. And… I probably wouldn’t have too much guilt if they were cut into smaller squares. I bet they have a ton of flavor. Thank you so much for the recipe and for partying with us over at Inspire Me Mondays. We hope to see you next week! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. There is no baking time after pouring chocolate mixture onto crust. Is this correct. I remember these from a Canadian childhood many years ago. They are so good. Afraid to fix as recipe states can u help? I find your blog so interesting and informative. Have enjoyed all things French for most of my life as I grew up in Canada. (Part French.). Your site us truly authentic and informative. Thank you.

    • Hi Doreen! This is the recipe we always use, and we don’t bake after pouring the chocolate. I’m sure there are other variations on this recipe so maybe you used one that DID bake? But I can tell you these are DELICIOUS when following my recipe! Thank you for reading, I really appreciate it!
