Lucky Charms Rice Krispie Treats {They're Magically Delicious}


It takes certain amount of patience to pick out all the marshmallows from a big box of Lucky Charms. But on a St. Patrick's Day Sunday morning, when all is calm and rather lazy, one has time for sticky fingers and long projects.

These treats are just like everyone's favorite Rice Krispie Treats except they have Lucky Charms marshmallows on the inside and on top. So they're extra marshmallowy, extra colorful, and extra sugary. I don't have to tell you that this spells d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s. 

Is it healthy? Well, of course not. But every once in awhile, on a lucky green holiday, it's fun to have an extra special treat!

The real question is: Do you have the patience to dug out all the marshmallows from a cereal box? Then after that, do you have the patience to artfully place 2 cups of marshmallows on top of the Rice Krispie Treats?

I did not. By the time the treats were ready to be topped with the marshmallows, I just threw them all on top and called it a day.

Serves 12-16

4 tablespoons butter

1 (10-ounce) bag of mini marshmallows

6 to 7 cups rice cereal

3 cups Lucky Charms marshmallows (get the big box)

Line a 9x9 inch baking dish with parchment paper or spray it with nonstick spray. You can also use a 9x13 inch baking dish, the squares just won't be as thick!

In a large pot, melt the butter over low heat. Once the butter is melted and even a little browned, stir in the mini marshmallows. Stir until the mixture is creamy and the marshmallows have melted.

Turn off the heat and fold in the rice krispies. Completely mix until all the rice cereal is mixed in. Stir in 1 cup of the Lucky Charms marshmallows and fold them in for a few minutes. Press the mixture into the dish. I like to press it down with a piece of parchment paper so it gets super smooth on top and it doesn't stick to the spoon. Then I press the remaining Lucky Charm marshmallows into the top. Let them set for about an hour. Slice into squares and serve.
