In case you’ve missed it, I love getting festive for all the holidays and that includes St. Patrick’s Day! When the weather cooperates, we go to my sister’s for their town’s parade and wear all the green and have all the fun! Its just a fun time with good friends and family and cannot be beat!
So today, I’m sharing TWO treats that I love for St. Patrick’s Day that are super easy to make with Lucky Charms!
Lucky Charms Treats
- 9 cups Lucky Charms cereal
- 10 oz mini marshmallows
- 1/2 stick butter
- Heat butter in large pot over medium-low heat.
- Add marshmallows and mix into butter, stirring until marshmallows liquify.
- Pour cereal into pot and mix until fully combined.
- Spread into greased 13×9 dish or cookie sheet.
- Press down until evenly spread out. Let sit to cool.
- Cut with a shamrock cookie cutter or into squares.
Lucky Charms Cookies
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp coarse salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup Lucky Charms marshmallows (plus extra for garnish)
- Preheat oven to 350˚F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Set aside.
- In a large bowl with a mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
- Add egg and vanilla, beating until each has been incorporated.
- Add in half the flour mixture and beat until combined.
- Do the same with the rest of the flour mixture. Continue to mix until it forms a dough.
- Stir in marshmallows.
- Scoop cookies onto cookie sheet. I used a medium-sized ice cream scoop.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the begin to turn golden.
- Remove from oven and press additional marshmallows into the tops while cookies are still warm.
- Move to cooling rack for a few minutes to cool before serving.
If you make both, you can totally throw together a fun charcuterie board for your parade party or a fun dessert night for the kids! You can see how I put mine together over on Instagram!
