Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats Recipe

Are you a fan of Lucky Charms cereal? How about Rice Krispie Treats? If so, then this recipe is perfect marriage of both of those yummy treats!

This tasty twist on the classic cereal with melted marshmallow are sure to be a hit with both kids and adults. Best of all, they only take about five minutes to prepare. With just three simple ingredients, these treats are easy to make even for non-bakers.

USEFUL TRICK FOR MAKING THESE TREATS

I love a homemade Rice Krispie treat, but I hate the clean up when making these. My kitchen ends up being a sticky disastrous mess.

I have a easy solution though! Use vinyl gloves! Wear a pair of vinyl gloves coated with butter instead of a spoon to handle and smooth the cereal after it is all blended together!
