This recipe makes a dozen treats.
Things you’ll need
A non-stick baking pan
A large non-stick pot or saucepan
½ cup unsalted butter softened
1 ½ cups of mini marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups of rice krispie cereal
½ cup of lucky charms (preferably the four-leaf clovers)
Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set to the side. Open box of lucky charms and separate your preferred charms from the rest of the cereal. We used the four-leaf clover to stick with the St. Patrick’s Day theme.
Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add in 1 cup of the marshmallows. Reduce heat to low and continue stirring until completely melted.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, rice cereal, the remaining ½ cup of marshmallows and half cup of lucky charms.
Pour mixture into prepared baking pan. Use a spatula and gently press the mixture into the pan. Allow to set for about 1 hour.
Cut and enjoy
