Lucky Charm Treats


Almost St. Patrick's Day and the sun is shining, there is NO more snow on the ground and it's Friday. {PRAISE HANDS TO ALL THE THINGS}. Last week was Nate's birthday so I picked up a random assortment of his favorite cereals and snacks to surprise him with. This of course meant that all week, we have had Fruity Pebbles, Lucky Charms and Captain Crunch staring me in the face. And I'm ready to clean my pantry and get rid of it all! So if you're feeling either A) like you need to clean house, B) you want to be praised by your kids after school today or C) you just really love St. Patrick's Day, here is a quick and easy little thang to whip up for your junk food pleasure. Enjoy.



1/4 cup of salted butter

1 bag of mini marshmallows

1/2 bag or so of cereal (really whatever kind you want, no rules here)


Melt your butter in a large saucepan. Reduce heat to medium and stir in marshmallows. Continue to stir continuously until marshmallows are completely melted and you have a very gooey mess. Pour in your desired cereal and turn off heat. Continue to add cereal as necessary and mix the entire  batch together. Grease an 8x8" pan and pour your mixture in. Refrigerate until solid. Or start eating immediately. Your choice. 

Happy snacking!
