Lucky Leprechaun Treats

Any holiday where you get to dress up and get kind of silly is my kind of holiday! St. Pattys day is no exception! Green beer, corned beef and cabbage with a side of Irish soda bread….. Yum! And your favorite dessert with a touch of green food dye 🙂

I made some Green Velvet Cheesecakes and these delicious gems. I can’t even remember the last time I made rice Krispy treats, but these are even better because they are made with favorite cereal, Lucky Charms!

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsp Butter
  • 10 oz Marshmellows
  • 5 drops Green Food Coloring
  • 6 cups Lucky Charms
  • Non stick spray

In a medium, microwave safe bowl add the Marshmellows and butter. Microwave at 30 second intervals stirring each time until the Marshmellows are completely melted. Stir in the green food coloring. Spray a large bowl with non stick spray, add cereal, pour the melted Marshmellows over the cereal. Use a large spoon to combine all ingredients.

Spray a 9×13 pan with non stick spray and spread out the treats into the pan. I learned the hard way that you should spray your hands or a spatula with non stick spray in order to press the treats down and make them as level as possible. Let them finish cooling for 5 minutes.

Enjoy some luck o the Irish!! Best served with a tall glass of cold milk 🙂
