St. Patrick’s Day Marshmallow Bars (2 Varieties)

miz-helen-badge-alt5

I have a few St. Patrick’s Day recipes on my blog.

This year  I decided I needed to have a few more recipes for St. Patrick’s Day.  My boys LOVE marshmallow bars.  I decided using Lucky Charms or Froot Loops instead of Rice Krispies would a great alternative.

The Wee One was with me when I went shopping.  I asked him which type of cereal he wanted me to use.  He hemmed and hawed over the decision so I bought both.  (They were on sale.)  We were going to ask his brother which one I was going to use.

The Imaginative One hemmed and hawed over the decision.

Then they were worried there would not be any cereal for them to eat for breakfast.  Fortunately I had bought family sized boxes.

So we used both cereals to make bars.  The family (Hubby included) loved the marshmallow bars.

Stars of the recipe:

  • 6 c. Lucky Charms

Steps:

  1. In a large bowl, melt the butter in the microwave.  (About a minute)
  2. Add the marshmallows.  Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes or until melted.
  3. Pour in the Lucky Charms.  Stir until coated.  (Spray the spoon with cooking spray so it won’t stick.)
  4. Press into a greased 8 by 8 square pan if you want thicker bars or 9 by 13 pan if you want thinner bars.  (I used clean hands that were sprayed with cooking spray.)  If using green sanding sugar, sprinkle over the bars.
  5. Allow to set up and then cut into squares using a sharp knife.
  6. Enjoy!
