What began as a mixture of Cheerios and chopped up circus peanuts– no joke!– in 1964 is now a contemporary, monochromatic reward for a restricted time only: To celebrate their 50th birthday, Lucky Charms is going all green (marshmallows, that is). Our buddies at the Good Housekeeping Test Kitchen ripped opened a couple of boxes to create these fun St. Patrick’s Day goodies.
1. Lucky Charm Cookies
Cookie enthusiasts will swoon over this sweet-and-salty recipe. We produced a “garden compost cookie”- style treat utilizing ground Lucky Charms “flour,” marshmallow bits, and loads of white chocolate chips.
Take the cookies out of the oven while they’re still pale golden (and scrunch in the sides using an offset spatula, if desired)– that’s what gives them their soft, chewy centers!
2. Green Velvet Silver Dollar Pancakes
Go green on St. Patrick’s Day morning! These miniature pancakes get a sweet twist from homemade cream cheese glaze and a hearty topping of Lucky Charms cereal.
Brief on time? Avoid step two and just color pancake mix (prepared as label directs) using green food coloring.
3. Mini Lucky Charm Cheesecakes
Trying to find a party-worthy reward to serve for March 17? These bite-size cheesecakes are stylish and simple to make.
We separated the marshmallow bits from the cereal, then utilized simply the cereal to make a “graham cracker”- design crust. Shop these in the fridge for approximately 2 days.
4. Leprechaun Chow
Buddies and family will feel lucky to devour on this easy, no-cook treat! It’s all set in 15 minutes flat and just calls for 4 active ingredients. Swap in your favorite cereal and/or sprinkles, if preferred.
5. Fortunate Charm Eclair
Make a declaration with these simple Lucky Charms Éclairs! Start by separating the marshmallow bits from the cereal– we pulsed the cereal to make a super-flavorful “flour” for the dough. Swap in dark chocolate for the glaze, if wanted.
