Instructions

  1. Prepare a 9 x 9 pan by lightly coating it with cooking spray, then set it aside.
  2. In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter.
  3. Stir in the marshmallows and salt using a rubber spatula, ensuring to scrape down the sides to prevent burning. Remove from heat as soon as the marshmallows are fully melted.
  4. Fold in the Lucky Charms cereal until evenly coated.
  5. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan, pressing down firmly to create an even layer. If the bars are sticking, add a bit of cooking spray to your fingers or the back of a spoon to press down.
  6. Once set, use a sharp knife to cut the treat into squares.
  7. Store in an airtight container. You may also wrap individual treats in plastic wrap. Treats are best served within 3 days. Avoid refrigerating as it can lead to hard treats.

Tips For The Best Lucky Charm Cereal Treats

  1. Keep an eye on the marshmallows. Overcooking is a big no-no when whipping up Rice Krispie treats. If they spend too much time on the heat, you’ll end up with a sticky mess that’ll make your bars hard and chewy.
  2. Work quickly. Speed is your friend here. Marshmallow magic can turn into a sticky mess quicker than you can say “Lucky Charms.” So keep things moving to avoid marshmallow mayhem and get that mix into your pan pronto!
  3. Up the charm factor. Elevate your treat game by sprinkling extra Lucky Charms marshmallows on top for an extra pop of color.
  4. Use mini or full-size marshmallows. If opting for the larger variety, simply give them a quick chop for easier handling.
  5. Use fresh ingredients. Always use fresh marshmallows for the best results. They melt more evenly and give your treats that perfect fluffy texture.
  6. Prevent sticking. Lightly coat your hands, spoon, or spatula with cooking spray to prevent the marshmallow mixture from sticking.
  7. Don’t press too firmly. Aim for a gentle yet even pressure to achieve the perfect texture. Avoid pressing too hard as this can make the bars dense.
  8. Mix in Rice Krispies cereal. For an extra crispy texture, add a cup of Rice Krispie cereal along with the Lucky Charms.
