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!

    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!!
