St. Patrick’s Day is almost here! We had our reward party for the kids at school last week and the theme was St. Patrick’s Day. I started looked for treats and most of what I found included chocolate and mint. While I’m a huge fan of chocolate and mint, I knew the kids wouldn’t want everything with chocolate and mint. Plus, I’m always concious to not have all chocolate treats as my brother can’t have chocolate and I never want to have a kid miss out on a treat because they can’t have chocolate.
After searching for non-chocolate St. Patrick’s desserts it seemed as though there were two things that came up. Desserts that were rainbow colored and desserts with Lucky Charms. I saw these cute Lucky Charms Treats and knew the kids at school would love them. They were simple, they had familiar ingredients, and they looked fun.
To make the treats I simply melted butter and marshmallows, mixed them with the Lucky Charms, and pressed them into a pan. I then sprinkled on green and gold sprinkles to give them some sparkle. They turned out great. They were sweet, crunchy, and fun to eat. The kids enjoyed taking a bite, then picking out a favorite marshmallow, then taking another bite. These were a huge hit!
