Lucky Charms Treats


  Cupcake Diaries

One of the many things I inherited from my mom is a love for marshmallowy treats. She and I, along with my twin sister, went on a treat-making extravaganza this last weekend and one of the goodies we created was Lucky Charms Treats. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!

I love how colorful these are and how wonderfully marshmallowy.

And because we’re all a bunch of chocoholics in my family, we dipped these bad boys in green-colored white chocolate. Because everything is better dipped in chocolate! Talk about a yummy and festive treat!
Lucky Charms Treats
  • 6 c. Lucky Charms cereal
  • 1 1/2 bags mini marshmallows
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips
  • 4 drops green food coloring (Use 4 drops if you want the color green above. You can use more or less, depending on how dark you want the green!)

Butter the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Melt the butter completely and put it in a large, microwavable mixing bowl. Throw the marshmallows in over the butter and stir them around to coat them in the butter. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then microwave for another 30 seconds and stir. The marshmallows should be melted by now but if not, place them in the microwave for a few more seconds until they’re nice and melted.

Pour the Lucky Charms in the bowl and mix well with the marshmallow. (It helps if you pour a little in at a time.) Put the mixture into the 9×13 pan and wet down your hand with water to press the mixture evenly in the the pan. Cover and cool in the fridge for about an hour.

Cut into squares and place on wax paper. Melt the white chocolate at 30 second intervals, stirring after each 30 seconds. Add the food coloring. Dip the bottom third to half of each treat into the chocolate and place upside down on the wax paper to cool. Enjoy!

    I just made these and I was so bummed. I used gadiva white chocolate melting bits and the mixture was way too thick to dunk. The milk chocolate has always melted fine but with this I ended up spreading my chocolate on like frosting. This is an adorable idea…just don’t use this brand of white chocolate.

      Oh darn it! That’s too bad, I’m so sorry! It’s so frustrating when you end up learning something the hard way. But thank you for leaving this comment and letting me and everyone else know that those melting bits don’t work!!
