Lucky Charms Treats

Everyone needs quick and easy treat recipes for Saint Patrick’s Day. It's such a fun holiday that calls for green food dye, shamrock everything and of course, themed homemade treats!


These simple Lucky Charms Treats are an easy way to celebrate the holiday, and are made in minutes. The quick vanilla almond bark icing adds a sweet touch to the top, especially with some green food dye. These would be perfect for school parties, office treats or just an evening at home celebrating such a fun holiday with your family. Everyone looks good in green, even Rice Krispies treats!

 

 

Ingredients
  • 1 (10 ounce) bag jumbo marshmallows (or 1/2 bag small marshmallows, 8 ounces)
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 6 cups Lucky Charms
  • 10 pieces vanilla almond bark (3/4 of a package)
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • Green gel food coloring (optional)
Directions

In a large skillet or pot, heat butter over medium heat.

Spray a large mixing bowl with nonstick spray. Pour the Lucky Charms into the bowl and set aside.

Add the marshmallows and stir constantly until mostly melted. Turn off the heat and continue stirring until completely melted.

Pour the marshmallows over the Lucky Charms and use a mixing spoon to stir until the marshmallows fully cover all of the lucky charms.

Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Pour the marshmallow/Lucky Charms mixture into the dish and press down to fill the dish. Set aside.

In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the almond bark and shorting for 90 seconds on high. Remove and stir until completely melted. Add food coloring if desired.

Pour the almond bark over the Lucky Charms and use a spoon or spatula to spread evenly.

Allow to cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes until almost bark is firm. Slice and serve!

Makes: 12 servings
