If you’re looking to make St. Patrick’s Day magical or just want a tasty treat, try these Lucky Charm Bars. They’re just like Rice Krispy treats, but with the taste of Lucky Charms.
The best part is there are only 3 ingredients! Here’s what you’ll need:
- 6 cups of Lucky Charms
- 1 stick of unsalted butter
- 16 oz of marshmallows
The process to making this treat can be a little messy, but it’s fairly easy to do.
First, start off melting the butter and marshmallows together. I used medium heat so it didn’t get too hot to burn the marshmallows. It took a little bit of time, but I made sure to stir to break them down too.
When it’s melted, take off the heat and add the Lucky Charms to it. Make sure it all gets coated. This can get messy quick!
Then, spray a nonstick spray to a baking pan.
Spread the mix evenly across the pan. Again, this is a little tricky to do because it is so sticky! Keep at it and it’ll work.
Before letting it cool, I picked out marshmallows from the bag, even though I tell Mila not to… oops. I thought it’d look cute to have some extra on top of the Lucky Charm Bars. If it’s not a leprechaun trap, it’s definitely a toddler trap!
After around 40 minutes, your bars will be cooled and set to take pictures.
Cut them into bars or try using cookie cutters for fun shapes. After they’re cut up, you can enjoy your Lucky Charms Bars!
To store them, keep them in an air tight container on the counter. If you put them in the fridge, they’ll just harden up and loose their chewy appeal.
As always, let me know if the comments what you think of this recipe or if you try it out!
