Our St. Patrick’s Day celebration isn’t ever anything big, but one things for sure, we eat corned beef and cabbage. I actually just bought some from our local meat company for the first time and I’m so excited to cook it in the slow cooker this weekend.
Other than that, we don’t really celebrate in any other way. I’m not a big fan of green anyways. Haha I sound like such a brat, but it’s true! I’m really into the ways the bloggers/social influencers I follow have been incorporating rainbows into their St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. It honestly makes me like the holiday a little more!
These Lucky Charm treats are something I’ve seen all of the internet, so don’t give me credit for coming up with this concept!! But this is my take on it. I made these with Peyton and I’d recommend making them with your kids too! This is such an easy treat to put together and kiddos can help with every step. It was so fun seeing her face as the marshmallows melted into the butter and of course, she loved getting to snack on Lucky Charms while we made them. Such a cute way to celebrate the holiday this weekend too! We of course had to add a little bit of edible gold on top.
If you end up making these, don’t forget to tag your photos with #marinamakeseats.
Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats
Makes nine marshmallow treats
- Cooking spray
- 6 tablespoons of butter
- 15 oz of mini marshmallows (1 1/2 10 oz bags)
- 6 cups of Lucky Charms
- Edible glitter or sprinkles (optional)
Grease a 9X9 or 8X8 baking dish (with edges) with or cooking spray.
Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. When butter is melted and starts to sizzle, add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from the heat.
Add Lucky Charms and mix to combine really well.
Place marshmallow mixture into the greased baking dish, pressing down to ensure all of the cereal sticks together. Top with edible glitter or sprinkles and let it sit and cool for 30 minutes to an hour. Cut into squares and enjoy!
