I love Rice Krispie Treats, but I tend to get bored of the same old thing. Instead, I made marshmallow treats using one of my favorite cereals - Lucky Charms!!
I think this worked out really well. The marshmallow slightly softens the cereal, giving it a nice chewy texture. And, because the cereal is already sugary, these are sweeter than a traditional rice krispie treat.
I'd recommend rolling these into balls instead of cutting into squares, just because it would be easier. Enjoy! :)
Lucky Charms Treats-
5 cups Lucky Charms cereal
3 Tbsp. butter
4 cups marshmallows - That equals 38 big ones, just thought you should know!
1 tsp. milk
Slowly melt the butter in a medium saucepan set over medium-low heat. Do not allow it to brown. Stir in the marshmallows; allow them to melt slowly. Stir in milk. Immediately pour over cereal and stir until cereal is completely coated.
You can press the mixture into a square baking dish (lightly greased), allowing to sit for an hour or so before cutting. You can roll the mixture into balls... or just eat it as is!
