This year for St. Patrick’s Day I thought it would be fun to make this Lucky Charms cereal bars recipe. Both my girls love lucky charms cereal, but I don’t buy it much since all they want to do is eat the marshmallows. However with these bars they have no choice but to eat it all.
Even though these are cereal bars, we are using them more as a dessert than breakfast, especially since we dipped each one in chocolate! Because these are for St. Patty’s Day, I had the girls pick out the shamrock and rainbow marshmallows and then we added those to the tops of the bars. Make sure you add them while the mix is still a little wet. If you don’t get them added fast enough then you can always dip the marshmallows in a little chocolate and then add them to the tops at the same time you dip the bottoms. I had to do that with a few that fell off.
Although dipping your bars in chocolate is super yummy and makes them look more festive, it is optional. These bars are really yummy even without the chocolate!
