If you’re gonna go green… make Lucky Charms marshmallow treats

These are the most magical marshmallow treats!

Here’s your friendly reminder: St. Patrick’s Day is this weekend! Don’t let it slide by without adding a touch of green to your menu. There’s one iconic cereal that basically begs for a spot at the St. Patrick’s Day table.

Dina Driggs isn’t stopping at a bowl of Lucky Charms and green milk. Take the magically delicious marshmallows all the way to dessert. Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats are easy, quick, and most importantly, green! The secret to making them especially festive is green Lucky Charms. You can only find them on the grocery store shelves around St. Patrick’s Day.

The trickiest part of making marshmallow treats is when they stick to your hands. To combat this, Dina takes a slice of butter and rubs it on her hands to push the mixture around in the pan until it’s filled in.
