Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats

Chances are you have had a Rice Crispy Treat at some point in your life. With all that buttery, chewy, gooey, marshmallow-y goodness they are definitely a well-known treat! With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, here's a version of the marshmallow treat made especially for the holiday... Lucky Charms cereal replaces Rice Crispy cereal for a festive, fun, colorful, and delicious version of the original marshmallow treat!



These Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats are so quick and easy to whip up. And... just look how festive they are! 


I can't remember the last time I had Lucky Charms cereal, so these marshmallow treats were fun to make! Nothing brings out the child in you like a fun, colorful, and tasty cereal. You really can't go wrong with butter, marshmallows, and Lucky Charms cereal... after all, "they're magically delicious".

Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats

Ingredients:
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups Lucky Charms cereal
  • cooking spray

Directions:
In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.


Add Lucky Charms cereal. Stir until well coated.


Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. (I sprayed my hands with cooking spray, then used my hands to form, firmly pack the mixture into a rectangle on wax paper)


Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.


You could push the cereal mixture into a greased shamrock-shaped cookie cutter to make shamrock-shaped marshmallow treats! Or add a few drops of green food coloring to give the treats a nice green hue for the holiday too.

What a super easy, quick treat to whip up for a St. Patrick's Day celebration! The fun, colorful, luck-o-the Irish inspired cereal makes this marshmallow treat a definite a crowd-pleaser!

Yum :)
