Happy almost St. Patrick’s Day! As an Irish girl I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for this holiday, and love celebrating with cheesy decor and festive treats. When I was little I wanted my mom to die all of the food green - she wasn’t so on board, though I do remember dinner at a friend’s house where even the rice was green. Such a fun memory! Now that I’m a little older, and a little less on board with copious amounts of food coloring, I’m excited to celebrate with corned beef and cabbage and this festive dessert. These marshmallow treats are easy to make and magically delicious!
Grease an 8x8 baking dish. Melt 6 tbsp butter in a large saucepan on low heat. Add in half the marshmallows; once melted add in the other half. Stir in salt and vanilla. Finally add in the Lucky Charms, a couple cups at a time until everything is combined. Using a spatula, pour the mixture into the baking pan and tap down so the top is flat. Let sit for about an hour to set. Optional: pick out some of the marshmallow charms from the remaining cereal and sprinkle on top.
How are you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day? Do you have any fun treats or plans?
