lucky charms marshmallow bars

These are my little twist on Rice Krispies Treats, one of my husbands favorite things...  crossed with Lucky Charms, one of his favorite cereals!

We absolutely love Lucky Charms around here, and this is such a fun way to enjoy them!

Actually, this is kind of the only way we can enjoy them anymore...  Bjørn loves the marshmallows so much that, if we pull out a box for any reason, he throws a fit until he gets some!

The problem with that is...  he will only eat the marshmallows, leaving a whole mess of plain cereal that no one is excited to eat.

So, when I saw some pre-packaged cereal bars similar to these at the store the other day - I loved the idea... but I didn't love the price, and knew I could make them much cheaper at home.

Enjoy!  :o)

Lucky Charms Marshmallow Bars Recipe

4 tablespoons butter
1 (10oz) bag marshmallows
6-7 cups Lucky Charms cereal*

Grease a 9x13" dish or a large tupperware container.

In a large saucepan, melt the butter.  Stir in the marshmallows and continue to cook, stirring often, until the marshmallows are melted and smooth.

Remove from the heat and stir in the cereal until combined.  Spread into your greased container and press down with damp fingers to flatten and smooth the top.

*You can adjust the Lucky Charms amount depending on how...  gooey...  you like your bars.  We like 'em really gooey, so I used 6 cups cereal!
