Growing up has a lot of ups and downs – you have to pay bills, work to go to, laundry to fold…BUT you can eat Lucky Charms at anytime of the day. So there’s that.
I’d say it’s worth it 100%.
Before we dive into a soft file of Lucky Charms Marshmallows – Can I tell you about the “adult” thing Jesse and I did last weekend? Don’t worry, it’s not a NSFW type of adult thing…
We got a Costco membership.
Nothing against anyone who shops at Costco, but I dunno, it just feels so suburban.
…AND EXCITING. I had no idea you could buy toothpaste in that large a quantity. In one fell swoop, we’re set for the next 3 years with oral hygiene products. And don’t even get me started on the size jar of Everything Seasoning I found. I’m going to use Everything Seasoning on everything! …
Can you tell I’m just a little excited and in denial at the same time about this new suburban lifestyle of ours?
Which brings me to Lucky Charms – I bought the box of Lucky Charms used in this recipe at our local grocery that I typically go to the week before we got our Costco membership. The small box cost $4.99. Kind of expensive in my mind for sugar cereal – but the treats are well worth it – so I bought the box. And then I went to Costco and discovered they have DOUBLE packs of the larger boxes of Lucky Charms for $5.99!! That’s more than double the amount of Lucky Charms for about $1 more. The Costco membership would be worth the savings in Lucky Charms alone!
So yeah, there are two Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treat recipes on this blog. The other recipe has white chocolate involved, this one does not. They’re both magically delicious. If you go the white chocolate route, I highly recommend just straight up dipping the bottom of your treats into melted white chocolate – it’s so good! The recipe here has a higher ratio of marshmallow to cereal for the ultimate gooey texture. But choose your own adventure here! There are no wrong choices when it comes to Lucky Charm Treats!
- 4 cups mini marshmallows
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 5 cups Lucky Charms cereal
- sprinkles, optional
In a large non-stick pot (I like to use my dutch oven), heat butter over medium-low heat until melted. Once melted, stir in marshmallows. Stir until melted. Reduce heat to low and stir in Lucky Charms cereal until melted marshmallow in thoroughly incorporated.
Press cereal and marshmallow mixture into a parchment lined 8×8 pan. Sprinkle a few extra Lucky Charm marshmallows and sprinkles on top (I used green for St. Patty’s Day!). Let cool at least 10 minutes. Cut into 9 squares. Enjoy!
*For EXTRA gooey marshmallow treats use a 1:1 ratio of cups of cereal to marshmallow. So for this size recipe, 5 cups marshmallow and 5 cups cereal.
