Fitting a round peg in a square hole

My kitchen ceiling has two square holes. The previous owner put two round fixtures up. I like the fixtures, but the corners of the square ceiling holes peek out. Is it possible to tape and mud these corners? Any other suggestions? Thank you!

Yes, and if the areas are fairly small you may get away without using the tape - just go with the spackle. I would say that if the hole size is larger than a nickel, you might have to tape. Otherwise just apply the spackle and see what happens. Carefully sand the areas after they dry.
