Everyone has a favorite cereal and around these parts we like 'em so much they aren't just for breakfast. We also love making dessert treats out of our favorites.

Lucky Charms adds the perfect flavor and crunch and I just can't get enough of those marshmallows! How about you? When I was developing this recipe I just had to add extra Lucky Charms marshmallows on top.

I mean they are the best part of the cereal and I always pick them out of the box. Apparently I am not the only one, you can even buy just the marshmallows now. These are so easy, they are perfect for school treats, holiday parties, to bring to work, potlucks and so much more.

Helpful Tips to make Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats:

  • The salt is optional but it mellows out the sweetness and gives it the perfect flavor.
  • If you are using almond bark instead of candy melts, simply place 1-2 squares in a microwave safe bowl and place in the microwave. Microwave for 30 seconds at time, stirring after each interval until melted.
  • Add drops of food coloring until desired color is reached. You can use more than one shade of green to make the design shown in the pictures.

    What you will need to make Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats:

    • 9x13 Baking DishI have my favorites and this set is one of them. The 9x13 is perfect for casseroles and the smaller size is awesome for making 1/2 a casserole recipe.
    Enjoy!
