Monday Munchies: Snowmobile Squares

Be prepared to plow through these treats with a dessert that is considered a Canadian classic.

Our Monday Munchie recipe today features Nova Scotia's very own Snowmobile Squares: a treat that is decked out with multiple layers of sweetness.


  • 28 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups light brown sugar
  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-pound semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 9 ounces sweetened condensed milk


  1. Heat oven to 350°F|175°C. Grease a 9-inch-by-13-inch pan with butter. Line it with parchment paper and grease it again, then set the pan aside.

  2. In a large bowl, combine 24 tablespoons of the butter, flour, sugar, oats, baking soda and 1 teaspoon each salt and vanilla until combined. Add in the eggs and stir until completely coated. Pack all but 3/4 cup batter into a prepared baking dish and set aside.

  3. Fill a medium saucepan with 2-inches of water and place it over medium-high heat. Place a heat-proof bowl over the saucepan and add in the remaining butter, salt, and vanilla plus the chocolate and sweetened condensed milk and stir until melted and smooth.

  4. Pour the chocolate sauce over the batter and spread into an even layer. Flick the remaining batter over the top and bake until golden and cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
