Ingredients for Lucky Charms Treats
It only takes 3 ingredients and a few minutes to whip up these delicious treats:
- Mini marshmallows
- Cereal; and
With the cereal, you don’t really have to measure it out, just pour the whole 11.5-ounce box in there – it measures really close to 9 cups.
These Lucky Charms Treats are Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day
Lucky Charms cereal is especially festive for St. Patrick’s Day with the leprechaun and all. This is my kind of St. Patrick’s Day treat because it is really so simple and easy.
On top of being a super festive treat, it’s definitely more creative than just adding green food coloring to a food or drink. Plus, The kids can even help make these Lucky Charms treats if you want them to.
Marshmallow Treats Tip
I think the key to really delicious marshmallow treats, regardless of the cereal you use, is to add more marshmallows than what most traditional recipes call for. The treats end up being soft, gooey, and oh so yummy.
Adding marshmallows and butter to cereal might not be healthy, but man is it delicious! Definitely a fun and enjoyable treat that the whole family will love and devour!
Pretty sure these Lucky Charms treats will get requested every St. Patrick’s Day and then some. Enjoy!
