Happy Thursday, friends and Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you all! I’m sharing a quick, colorful, and perfectly festive treat that I made for my family to enjoy on this day. If you love traditional Rice Krispie treats, then you’ll LOVE this little twist on the classic using Lucky Charms cereal as a substitute for the Rice Krispies cereal! This recipe is super easy to throw together and tastes great using all kinds of cereal varieties …its fun to experiment with them all. The best thing is this only requires three ingredients and only about 5 minutes to mix together, with another 5 minutes to pour and press into the pan! A simple 10 minute, 3 ingredient treat? Yes, Please! This really couldn’t get any easier or delicious 🙂
Here’s what you’ll need:
Lucky Charms cereal (11.5 oz box)
8 cups of Mini Marshmallows (add more or less to your liking since this one is really sweet but still so yummy!)
1/2 cup of Butter
1.Melt the butter in a large pot over low heat until liquified completely.
2.Mix in the mini marshmallows and melt over low heat. Blend well with the melted butter.
3. Pour in the box of Lucky Charms cereal and give it all a good stir. Remove from heat.
4.Grease a 13×9 pan and pour the mixture into the greased pan.
5. Use a buttered spatula to press the warm mixture flat into the pan and allow to cool at least an hour before cutting into squares. Store in an air-tight container for 3-4 days.
