Steps to Make a Batch of Lucky Charm Cereal Bars
Follow these simple steps for yummy and festive goodies that are perfect for Saint Patrick’s Day parties and all year round.
Melt the Butter and Marshmallows in a large bowl in the microwave for 1-2 minutes then add cereal.
The mixing part is really important because the marshmallows tend to stiffen as they lose their heat. If kids are helping with this, support them in stirring vigorously and quickly to ensure that your mixture doesn’t harden before the fun molding stage. Lucky Charms Cereal Bar treats can be a little bit tricky at this stage.
Using wax paper as the base on your surface (to keep the marshmallow mix from sticking) In about one cup increments, mold the mixture into bars. If preferred, used real molds. Put sticks or straws in the bottoms of them to create a way for them to be held while eating.
KID TIP – Put butter on your hands before molding to make it super easy and SUPER messy too. It is so much fun.
If desired, add a drizzle of melted candy over the treats. This is not necessary but super cute. It is fun to add a few of the marshmallows to this candy before it hardens.
