Lucky Charms. Who doesn’t love ’em. Recently I was browsing Pizza & Champagne (one of my favorites, written by two Dallas sisters, foodies & travelistas) and “luckily” came across what I consider to be a breakthrough in modern baking: the oh-so-necessary use of Lucky Charms! When I so graciously happened upon this recipe I was already halfway to the store for the few ingredients needed.
Follow me on my journey to the
pot of gold dish of marshmallow goodness!
Even the task of hand sorting the Lucky Charms’ marshmallows and cereal
was a slightly therapeutic duty.
As Kelsie + Lexi said, this is technically cereal so you could eat it
free of guilt tomorrow morning too…right?!
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1 10 oz. bag marshmallows
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 5-6 C Lucky Charms cereal (tiny marshmallows picked out + reserved)
- 1. Grease a 8 x 8" pan. Pour 5 C of cereal into large bowl.
- 2. In a heavy bottom pot, brown butter over medium-low heat. (To brown butter: slowly melt butter, and stir frequently. The butter will begin to foam, and little brown bits will form at the bottom. Continue stirring until butter is a golden-brown color and smells nutty - remove from heat quickly before burning)
- 3. Once butter is browned, remove from heat, add marshmallows and salt. Stir until marshmallows are melted. (put back over low heat for a few seconds if the pot isn't hot enough to melt the marshmallows)
- 4. Slowly pour marshmallow + butter mixture over cereal, stirring to combine. Add more cereal if needed/wanted. (I used a little less than 6 cups)
- 5. Pour cereal + marshmallow mixture into greased pan. Top with Lucky Charms marshmallows.
- 6. Let sit until firm - about an hour, or longer.
- 7. Slice into 9 pieces, and enjoy!
Charm your way into their hearts!
hungry Lucky, Dallas.
