Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats

Here are the fun treats! I mean really who doesn’t love Rice Krispie Treats? I think we can agree that they are not only a kid fan favorite but an adult one also.  So with St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner what would be more fun and appropriate than Lucky Charms “Rice Krispie” Treats? St. Patrick’s Day is a very very big to do around our house.  For several reasons: 1. I am 25% (give or take) Irish on my Dad’s side.  2. Steve and I are very very bad never go to church Catholic’s but still like to do the fun stuff   3. Green is Steve’s favorite color and last but not least (you knew I was going to say it) 4. IT’S A PARTY!!!!

And what a fun party it is!  We get to make all sorts of great food and we get make all sorts of new cocktails each year with Bailey’s and Coffee and Beer and pretty much any combination of boozy things we can think of! The Thin Mint Shots are my favorite! I am going to have to blog those for you for real! With all the drinking that will be going on that weekend you are going to need some fun and festive food and treats ready.  Take a look at how fun these are!

We are starting a new Tradition these past 2 {well this makes 3} years. My Best Bud in life and in the Blogging world Ashley over at Kitchen Meets Girl has come to visit us on or very close to St. Patrick’s Day. This year Ashley, the Tall boy and Doodle will be here again! I can not wait! We go to parade’s, we cook and blog, we eat and drink, and make a fun little craft with the Doodle Bug! I have been gathering my supplies and getting my menu in order for the Big Visit in 2 weeks! I have only one regret, these treats are ALL GONE! We have one person to thank for that. A certain 20 year old that resides here and eats non-stop ate the entire 9×13 pan in one day! One Day! I guess I can’t blame him they are really really good.

Of the one square that I got before they “magically” disappeared, I think that I like these better than the original recipe. Those charm marshmallows are so good in there. I can really see why he ate so many of them. I guess I can call him my little Leprechaun as he can be quite naughty at times. Never mind that he is 6′ tall. So when you are getting your St. Paddy’s day menu and treats together for your party or festivities I really recommend these fun and easy Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats!
