The other night I dreamt of food, which actually isn't all that unusual for me. However, this particular night I dreamt of a candy sweet cereal that I haven't tasted in at least 20 years, Lucky Charms. I dreamt I was making batch after batch of Rice Krispie Treats but instead of Rice Krispies, Lucky Charms filled the pan. I couldn't get them out of my head all morning and had to do something about it as soon as possible. After a quick Google search, I realized that Lucky Charms Treats are already a very popular thing, who knew?
When something comes to you in a dream, you can't ignore it. I couldn't shake the spell of that magically delicious taste. Since these Lucky Charms Treats are already loaded with marshmallowy goodness, why not triple down on the marshmallow madness and make them into Lucky Charms S'mores? It may be an overload of refined sugar and sticky sweetness, but sometimes you just have to let it go and allow yourself to live your dreams.
Lucky for us, St. Patrick's Day, a holiday notorious for overdoing it, is right around the corner. That means it's perfectly acceptable to get completely out of control for a day. I happen to detest green beer and bag pipes aren't really my bag. So, I plan to mix up a pot of gold and try my luck with these rainbow sprinkled, marshmallowy sweet, Lucky Charms Treat S'mores.
This recipe makes 48 squares or 24 Lucky Charms Treat S'mores, which is a lot. But, I wanted to use up all of the Lucky Charms cereal and mini marshmallows in one fell swoop since I probably wouldn't ever actually use either again. If you don't want such a large batch, just halve the recipe.Print
