St Patrick’s Day Recipe: Lucky Charms Treats

Lucky Charm Treats

St. Patrick’s Day is creeping up on the calendar. If you are looking for a sweet, colorful treat, this recipe for Lucky Charms Treats that I found at The Sweets Life is adorable and tasty. I felt like being wild so I tinted my melted marshmallows with a tiny bit of green food coloring, but that is optional.

One tip that I have done for years when making rice krispies treats is to use a 9×9 or 8×8 pan, instead of the traditional 9×13. I like big ol’ chunky rice krispies treats so the smaller pans work perfectly to achieve that.

To make them extra cute, reserve about 1/2 cup of the Luck Charms marshmallows to decorate the top with. Many thanks to The Sweets Life for this recipe. Enjoy!

    Woow. It looks delicious. I don’t know the recipe even though my husband is of Irish descent. :-o But it doesn’t matter, I’ll now have a perfect opportunity to prepare it either at home or during a cooking class we signed up for a month ago. To put it more precisely, my husband gave me a special gift on this year’s Valentine’s Day – he booked a cooking class organized by Zac’s cooking school in our native Vancouver called – cooking classes for couples so we’re now collecting interesting recipes to come up with during that course and this one will definitely be part of our list. :)
