One of my favorite treats to make when I need a dessert in a hurry are Rice Krispies treats. They are so easy to make, and everyone loves them.
Over the years I have made so many different variations on the original cereal treats. Some of our favorites are these Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispie Treats, these Brownie Mint Rice Krispie Treats, and these 100 Grand Rice Krispie Treats.
Yes, I realize I’m a little bit crazy about adding all the things to these easy marshmallow treats. Sugar coating sugar is what I do best. LOL!
One of my favorite cereals to eat when I was growing up was Lucky Charms. Ok, ok, my favorite part was actually eating all the marshmallows out of the box while no one was watching. Don’t tell my mom it was me!
The other day when we were picking up a few items from the grocery store, I saw a big display with boxes of Lucky Charms and Chocolate Lucky Charms on it.
The food blogger in me couldn’t leave without buying a box of each. Mainly because the new magical unicorn marshmallows were totally calling my name. Aren’t they so cute? Although, my favorites are still the rainbows.
I knew right away that marshmallow treats with Lucky Charms was about to happen. Crunchy Lucky Charms cereal covered in marshmallow goodness sounded like a very good plan. I just had to decide which box to use…
As you can see the chocolate box won! Who am I kidding…chocolate always wins.
Aren’t these homemade Lucky Charms bars so fun? You could even dip the bottom of each bar into melted chocolate for an even better version of the store-bought cereal bars.
How to make Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats:
Line a 9×13 pan with foil and spray it with nonstick baking spray. This will allow your marshmallow treats to come out of the pan easier once they cool.
Open the box of cereal and measure out 6 cups. Set this bowl aside.
Now pick through the remaining cereal and pull out the charms marshmallows. You are going to load these easy marshmallow treats with extra colorful marshmallow goodness inside and on top.
Melt the butter in a large pot over low heat. Add the miniature marshmallows and stir until melted and creamy. Make sure you use fresh marshmallows because you want your treats to stay soft and chewy.
Stir in the 6 cups of Lucky Charms cereal until everything is coated. Add 1 cup of the additional charms marshmallows and stir gently. You do not want the marshmallows to break apart and melt.
Dump the mixture into the prepared pan and gently press it down. You can spray your hands with nonstick spray and dip them in cold water to do this. Another trick is to spray a rubber spatula with nonstick spray and use that to press the cereal mixture down evenly.
Press the remaining 1/4 cup of charms marshmallows into the top of the warm chocolate Lucky Charms treats. Let the cereal bars cool completely before lifting them out and cutting them into squares.
