My mother found this recipe in the Dayton Daily News (Ohio) in the 1960s. They became a family tradition and I still bake them, but I’ve never known anyone else who had the recipe! They are tricky to make because you have to use the exact pan size. I also have a tattered copy with a photo from an old magazine. It specifies Nestle’s Chocolate Morsels, so it may have been one of their ads.

THANK YOU. I have been searching for a recipe for Orange Blossom Squares for years. I had an aunt who make them in the late 50s or early 60s. I always search the bar recipes in Cookie cookbooks in hopes of finding anything similar. I don’t remember the coconut, but the chocolate chips and orange glaze sound right on.

This has been a family tradition in my family also! I’m currently in my 20s and have always known this to be a family recipe, very cool to find out where it came from!

My grandmother made these. They were always my favorite. I never met anyone before that even knew what they were! I have a handwritten copy but it is in storage and hard to get to. I had a sudden reminiscence and was craving those squares, so I was so happy to find your post! Thanks a bunch!
