St. Patrick’s Inspiration {+ Lucky Charm Treats recipe}



I dig St. Patrick’s Day.  It’s such a fun and quirky day of the year to dye random things green and eat corned beef.  Plus it’s the only time of year I buy Lucky Charms cereal.  My kids have eaten their weight in it already, so I almost didn’t get to make these Lucky Charms Treats.  But I whisked away the box in time to rescue enough ingredients for a batch.  
If this is your first time making these, they are super easy.  I have tried them a variety of ways and have learned the best way to make them is with a combination of Rice Krispie cereal and Lucky Charms cereal.  Sadly, to get the best ratio of tiny charms marshmallows to cereal you have to rob most of the box of Lucky Charms which leaves cereal behind with no fun marshmallows.  My children were not humored.
Oh well.  

3 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
3 cups Lucky Charms Cereal (marshmallows removed)
1 ½ cups Lucky Charms Marshmallows (cereal removed)
40 regular sized marshmallows (about 10 ounces)
¼ cup butter
Grease the bottom of a 9×13 pan and set aside.  Mix together cereals + Lucky Charms marshmallows in a bowl.  In a 4 quart sauce pan over low heat, melt together butter and marshmallows, stirring often, until everything is melted.  Pour in cereal mixture and stir very gently until all of the cereal is coated in marshmallow.  Spread mixture into prepared pan and do not pat down.  Grease the tips of your fingers with butter and gently pat mixture into the corners. 
Let sit at least one hour.  Cut into squares and serve.  Delish.

    Thanks for including my fancy-pants green & gold table in your post!

    I only buy Lucky Charms this time of year too! I actually should have bought them today, but I know they'd be gone before Sunday, so I'm going to wait.
