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!
