How to Make Lucky Charms Bars

Next time Lucky Charms cereal is on sale, grab a box or two and make these delicious treats! For real. These Lucky Charms treats are sooo delicious and easy to make!

Making these Lucky Charms bars at home, I quickly discovered how addicting they are! I wanted to eat just one, but I ended up eating quite a few more than that (which was already several more than I let the kids eat). Haha.

This recipe would probably work well with many of your favorite cold cereals, so it would be fun to get creative with it too! Do some experimenting and figure out what works best!

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.
