Lucky Charms Bars

Rice Krispie treats are a go-to treat for any (and every) occasion, but when we’re looking for something extra-special, we turn to these Lucky Charms bars. The classic dessert gets a festive makeover for St. Patrick’s Day with the addition of the beloved cereal. The signature chewy marshmallow bars are littered with sweet (and adorable!) Lucky Charms pieces that turn this simple treat into the luckiest dessert. Here’s everything you need to know: 

What are Lucky Charms bars?
Think of the classic Rice Krispies treats you know and love, but with Lucky Charms added into the mix. The best thing about these bars? All you need are four ingredients (including salt) to create them. If you’re looking for an easy dessert, you can’t get much simpler than this. 

Top tips for making Lucky Charms bars:
Use fresh ingredients. This isn’t the time to use that stale bag of marshmallows or old cereal in your pantry. Stale ingredients = stale bars.
Prevent sticking. If your bars are sticking to your hands while you’re creating them, stick your hands in water first before touching again.
Work quickly. If you’ve made Rice Krispies treats before, you know how sticky they can get. Work quickly to make creating these bars as easy as possible.
Don’t press too tightly. When pouring into your pan, resist the urge to pack your cereal too tightly into the prepared dish. If you do, your bars will be smushed and on the harder side—nobody wants that.
