Super Easy and Fun St. Patty’s Day Treats

This post may contain affiliate links. 

Looking for the perfect St. Patty’s Day treat for your kiddo? These are simple and fun. If you’ve ever made the classic rice cereal treat, then you can make these too. I love making cereal treats and cutting them into fun shapes. I have one drawer in my fairly small kitchen completely filled with cookies cutters of all shapes and sizes. I really like the metal ones over plastic because they are stronger and more versatile. I’ve even make melted peppermint ornaments during the holidays with my metal cutters. Super fun!

Here are a few of my favorites!

The Shamrock, of course

Multi-Holiday Set

Easter Set

I just got these because I realized my Easter set was getting tired.

 

I hope you have a great time with this recipe. Its one of our go to recipes every year.

Lucky Charms Cereal Marshmallow Treats

This simple recipe is fun and easy. 
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time15 mins
Course: Dessert
Servings: 12 treats

Ingredients

  • 12 cups Lucky Charms
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 bag mini-marshmallows 16 ounces
  • cooking spray
  • parchment paper

Instructions

  • Spray a shallow baking dish with nonstick cooking spray, or lay out a large piece of parchment paper.
  • In a large pot or stock pot, heat the butter over medium heat. 
  • Once  butter is fully melted, add the marshmallows, and stir. Keep stirring to get marshmallow nice and creamy. 
  • Once completely melted, remove from heat and slowly add the cereal to the melted marshmallow folding until all the cereal is coated in marshmallow. (You'll want to do this fairly quickly before the marshmallow mixture gets too cold) 
  • Spread the mixture with a flat baking spatula until its in an even layer. This can be in the shallow baking dish or on the parchment paper. If needed, spray the spatula with cooking spray to keep the mixture from sticking.
  • Use a fun shaped cookie cutter to make shapes. You can reshape and flatten the cereal treats as needed to cut additional shapes.
