When I was a kid, Lucky Charms commercials used to be my absolute favorite. I loved hearing that little leprechaun say “always after me lucky charms!”. And if there’s anything I loved more than that commercial, it was the cereal itself. I dreamed of the day they came out with a cereal with just the marshmallows, but I enjoyed it either way. But if I can spread the deliciousness of Lucky Charms into one of my favorite dessert staples, I’m all over it! These St. Patrick’s Day sweets are to die for and your kiddos won’t be able to get enough. Here’s how to get started on these Lucky Rice Krispie Treats:
- 4 tablespoons of butter
- 1 10.5 oz plus 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 5 cups Lucky Charms
- optionalRainbow Sprinkles
Butter a 9×13 pan
Take large non-stick saucepan and melt butter on low heat.
Add 1 package of marshmallows and stir keeping on low heat until they are melted into the butter. Then add in the last 2 cups and let them melt partially.
Add in the Lucky Charms cereal and stir until the cereal is fully coated.
Pour mixture into prepared pan and spread out around evenly with a large spatula sprayed with non-stick spray or you can use butter.
Press mixture down into pan evenly. (Don’t over press, they become too compacted and hard). Optional: Add sprinkles immediately and press into treats.
Let treats sit for 2 hours or so and cut into squares into preferred sizes.
Seal treats after cutting.
Don’t forget to let your kiddos help with the decorating. I’m sure they’ll love being able to put their own touch on these rice krispie treats before they swallow them whole! What are some of your favorite St. Patrick’s Day treats? Let us know in the comments below!
