Lucky Charms Krispie Treats (magically delicious!)

Lucky Charms Krispie Treats 1_small
Do you ever remember you’re supposed to bring treats to an event like thirty seconds before you need them?

*crickets chirping*

Okay, maybe that’s just me. But it happens more than I’d like to admit.

This was the case last week when I remembered it was my turn for treats at Kate’s Girl Scout meeting. Whenever I make I flub like this I either head straight to the store for some packaged delights or get out my jumbo box of Rice Krispies and figure out how I can get creative (in 45 minutes or less).

In this case I happened to have Lucky Charms too (which means my husband did the grocery shopping). I will say I messed up the first batch trying to do an even ratio of Lucky Charms to Rice Krispies. The LC’s are too thick and crunchy; the treats just end up tasting dry. I whipped up batch #2 with 4 cups of Rice Krispies and 2 cups of LC’s. Perfection. Do it.

Lucky Charms Krispie Treats (magically delicious!)

Ingredients

4 tablespoons butter

4 cups (10 ounces) miniature marshmallows

4 cups Rice Krispies cereal

2 cups Lucky Charms cereal

extra Lucky Charms marshmallows and/or green sprinkles for garnish

Instructions

Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Set aside. Melt butter over low to medium heat in a large saucepan. Add marshmallows, and stir until melted. Take the pan off the heat. Add Rice Krispies, and stir until well coated. Stir in the Lucky Charms. (Letting the Krispies get coated first keeps the marshmallows in the LC's from melting too much.)

Using a spatula, transfer the cereal mixture to your prepared dish. Coat your hands with nonstick spray, and press down the mixture evenly. While the treats are still warm, add sprinkles, if using.

Let the treats cool, and cut into 2-inch squares. Store in an airtight container.
