I love celebrating holidays with my kids – big holidays and little holidays. I love to do something special for each one! This year for St. Patrick’s Day I knew I wanted to come up with a fun snack for the kids to help me make. I wasn’t entirely sure what I was going to make, though.
I headed to Family Dollar to see what I could come up with. As I was roaming the food aisles a box of Lucky Charms caught my eye. That’s about as Irish as it gets! I then grabbed a bag of marshmallows from the baking aisle and a stick of butter from the refrigerator section.
Instead of making rice crispy treats we made Lucky Charm Treats! This was a fun recipe for my kids to help me with. They measured out the ingredients with me and also helped me to pat the Treats flat. And, of course, they helped me to enjoy them once they were ready to eat
Here’s how we did it…
Lucky Charm Treats
|6 tablespoons butter|
|2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows|
|4 1/2 cups Lucky Charms|
Step 1: Pour your Lucky Charms into a large bowl and set aside.
Step 2: Grease a 9×13 pan with butter and set aside.
Step 3: In a saucepan, melt your butter.
Step 4: Add your marshmallows and stir over low heat.
Step 5: Continue to stir until your marshmallows have completely melted.
Step 6: Pour your melted marshmallows over your Lucky Charms.
Step 7: Stir until all the Lucky Charms are coated.
Step 8: Pour the mixture into your 9×13.
Step 9: Pat it all down flat with buttered hands.
Step 10: Let your Lucky Charm Treats set for an hour or two.
Step 11: Cut into squares once they are completely set.
This was such a fun St. Patrick’s Day activity!
Thanks to Family Dollar for providing all the ingredients we needed for a delicious Irish treat!
