I actually made these treats awhile back, in fact way back in March. They seemed perfect for St Patty's day. For some reason St Patty's Day is one of my favorite holidays. I don't know if its wearing green, eating and drinking green food or the chasing of leprechauns that is the most fun. Well maybe everyone doesn't chase leprechauns like we do :)
For the past two years we have done a scavenger hunt for my nieces on St Patty's Day. They are given clues that they have to follow that will eventually get them to the pot of gold. At each stop there is a small treat: socks, a green cup, some dollar coins etc. Of coarse since leprechauns are so tricky they always get away. Silly leprechauns.
This past weekend was a big one for Christmas in July. A lot of local campgrounds and tourist places did a Christmas party. If you have kids and were looking for some fun entertainment, why not do a scavenger hunt with them. Could be fun... I don't see why leprechauns couldn't come out in July. Seems like they would want something to do :) You could even make these treats. Since they are so magically delicious.
Once again I just made a 9X9 pan of the treats, but if you have a bigger crowd then go ahead and double the recipe for a 9X13 pan.
3 cups of lucky charms cereal
1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 bag of 10.5 oz marshmallows + 1/2 cup
Spray your 9X9 pan with non stick spray.
It is always good to be prepared for no bake recipes, so in a medium size bowl measure out your cereal and the white chocolate chips, mix them so they are evenly combined.
In a large saucepan melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and mix them unitl they are almost completely melted into the butter. There may be a few large bits of marshmallow left and that is ok.
Take the mixture off the heat and add the cereal and white chocolate chip mixture. Make sure that the cereal is fully coated and combined well.
Pour the cereal mixture into your prepared pan. Gently press down the cereal so that it is even in the pan. You can spray your hands to do this or use a spatula that is sprayed.
Let sit for 2 hours, and then cut for the number of servings that you want.
Have a lucky charm treat and enjoy!
