Ingredients for Lucky Charm Treats

Cereal: Use Lucky Charms or even a store-brand cereal with marshmallow bits.

Marshmallows: Just like Rice Krispie Treats, marshmallows help hold these squares together. I prefer mini marshmallows because they’re easier to melt but large ones (or even flavored ‘mallows) will work.

Other: Butter and vanilla flavor these treats.

How to Make Lucky Charm Treats

It’s fun and easy to make this sweet dessert:

  1. Separate marshmallow charms from the cereal.
  2. Melt butter and mini marshmallows until smooth and creamy.
  3. Add vanilla and cereal. Press into pan & cover with marshmallow charms.
  4. Press into the top & allow bars to cool completely before cutting.

Tips & Tricks

  • Mini marshmallows will melt faster than large marshmallows.
  • For thicker bars, press the mixture into a smaller pan.
  • Keep Lucky Charms treats in a covered container at room temperature for up to a week.
  • Wrap squares separately in plastic wrap and save them to pop into a backpack or briefcase for a midday snack!

  • 7 cups Lucky Charms Cereal cereal & charms separated
  • 6 cups mini marshmallows
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Butter a 9 x 13 pan and set aside.
  • In a large pot, melt butter and mini marshmallows over medium heat until smooth and creamy. Stir in vanilla and cereal (not the marshmallow charms).
  • Press warm cereal mixture into the pan. Sprinkle immediately with marshmallow charms and gently press to adhere.
  • Cool completely and cut into squares.


Note: For a thicker square, use a smaller pan. If the squares are thick, press 1/2 of the cereal into the pan & sprinkle with 1/2 of the marshmallow charms. Top with remaining cereal and marshmallows.
