Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Lucky Charms Treat Bars

Lucky Charms Treat Bars

Last week when Drew was working on his latest revisions for his dissertation, Justin kept wanting Drew to play with him, but he couldn't at that time. Since there's no where for Drew to escape to when working, Justin and I went to Shoppers. I needed to buy a few things anyway. As I walked past the items on mark down, I saw a box of Lucky Charms for $1.50. In order to save money, I rarely buy cereal, but since St. Patrick's Day is coming up, I decided to splurge.

Yesterday, my daughter and I made Lucky Charms Treat Bars. In order to make these, you'll need:
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 10.5 oz. mini marshmallows
  • 5 cups Lucky Charms
  • One Reese's Pieces Candy Carrot Shaped bag (A wee bit of orange for the Irish flag)
  • Green and orange pieces from Jelly Belly's 3.5 oz. Kids Mix Bag (More orange with some green for the Irish flag)
Line a 13 X 9 pan with parchment paper.

Remove the Green and Orange pieces from the Jelly Belly's bag and set aside. Give the rest to your children to eat.

Melt butter in pan.

After butter is melted, add the mini marshmallows. Stir until melted.

Add Lucky Charms to butter-marshmallow mixture. Stir until well coated.

Add Reese's Pieces and Jelly Bellies to Lucky Charms mixture. (You don't want to add the Reese's Pieces too soon or they will break open and melt.)

Once everything is thoroughly mixed, press the Lucky Charms mixture into the pan with a buttered spatula. Cut into bars once cool.

What's your favorite treat? Hope you find these magically delicious!
