Perfect for a last minute St. Patrick’s Day get together, these Lucky Charm Marshmallow Bars are so easy to make and “magically delicious!” Lucky Charms cereal is mixed with melted butter and marshmallows to create this sweet treat. Being half Irish, St. Patrick’s Day was always a big day in my house growing up. I could always count on having one of these bars in my lunch box on St. Patrick’s Day, along with other lucky green treats.
Like any other older sibling, I used to love playing tricks on my brother and my younger cousin. They were three years younger and very impressionable. One St. Patrick’s Day, I lead them on a mile long hunt, for leprechauns. I formed a trail of Jelly Beans, all over the yard and down the street, to a neighbor’s house. I told them if they followed the trail they would find the leprechauns, and they believed me! Needless to say they were pretty mad at me when they got to the end and there were no leprechauns or pots of gold. Every year around this time, I remember that story, and laugh to myself how I tricked them!
