Um yeah, this happened over the weekend! My niece came to hang out on Saturday and after the crafting, thrifting and frappacinos we did some “baking”. The girl loves her Lucky Charms cereal and whipping up treats so this was an obvious choice…Lucky Charms squares. Hold onto your fillings ‘cos here comes the recipe:
Lucky Charms squares
- 3 tbsp butter or margarine
- 2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
- 5 cups Lucky Charms cereal
Place the butter and marshmallows in a large bowl and microwave to melt. Ours took about a minute and we stopped every 20 seconds to check and give it a stir. Add the cereal and stir until well combined and all the cereal is coated. Press into a greased 9 X 9″ baking pan and let cool. Cut into bars and enjoy! Makes 16 squares.
In our defense, we only had one each just to sample our creation. The rest got packed up, along with the leftover cereal and sent home with the girl. These are such a fun Spring treat plus quick and easy enough for really young bakers! A bit too sweet for me but I bet the little ones would love them, especially if they made them themselves!
