Lucky Charms™️ Crispy Treats
Lucky Charms™️ make great crispy treats! To make really soft treats, melt the marshmallows over low heat. It takes a little extra time but it’s worth it. For an added flavor, stir in a teaspoon of vanilla extract into the melted marshmallows.
- 6 tablespoons salted butter (3 ounces; 85 grams)
- 1 (10 ounce) bag mini marshmallows
- 5 ½ cups Lucky Charms™️ cereal
Line an 8″-x-8″ pan with greased parchment paper or butter it generously.
In a large pot over medium-low heat, melt butter. Reduce the marshmallows. Stir until melted. Don’t increase the heat. Melting slowly is essential. Remove the pan from heat. Stir in Lucky Charms.
Spread into prepared pan. Gently press mixture into pan. Don’t press too hard. You won’t want to compact the cereal.
Let cool completely at room temperature. Cut into squares.
