Lucky Cereal Bars

Do you feel like St. Patrick's Day is skipped over? We like to have some fun with this holiday by wearing green and making some lucky treats. Lucky cereal bars come together in less than 15 minutes. Super easy to make and magically delicious.

Do you need a fun and easy dessert that comes together super fast? Lucky cereal bars are just what you are looking for. And if you love Lucky Charms cereal, it’s a double win!

These Lucky cereal bars are similar to Rice Krispie Treats. Even though they are so simple and easy to make, you’ll be surprised how addicting they are. Kendra made them for her college roommates and they were gone in no time at all.

And the best part about this recipe is that you only need 3 ingredients. And they are all inexpensive. So you have a delicious dessert that can be made fast and it will fit into your budget.

what other cereals will work with this recipe?

Lucky charms is our cereal of choice for this recipe. The marshmallows add a little sweetness and crunch. Rice Krispies cereal is also a great option.

A lot of Cheerios will also work. We like the frosted Cheerios, Honey Nut Cheerios, and regular cheerios. The marshmallows help to sweeten it up. The cereal options are endless.

It’s fun to make these cereal bars with Count Chocula cereal at Halloween. That’s one of our favorites. It’s delicious with the chocolate flavored cereal and marshmallows.

how do your store lucky cereal bars?

Lucky cereal bars are so easy to store. That is if you are lucky enough to have any leftovers. Just place them in an airtight container and they should be fine for 2 days. You could place them in the fridge.

If you want to freeze them, place them in an airtight container with wax paper in between the layers. This prevents them from sticking together. They freeze well for up to 6 weeks.

how to make lucky cereal bars

We love Lucky Charms cereal. When we were kids we would always pick out all of the yummy marshmallows and add them to our cereal bowl. It seems like they never added enough to the box.

Did you know you can buy Lucky Charms marshmallows on Amazon? They come in a big bag of just marshmallows! No more picking them out of the box.

Now you can load in extra marshmallows into your breakfast bowl, or even add more to these Lucky cereal bars. WIN! Or better yet, just eat them plain.

Just a few simple ingredients to make these Lucky Cereal Bars. 3 ingredients to be exact.

  • Melt the butter in a large pot over medium/low heat.
  • Add in the marshmallows and stir until all are melted.

  • Gently fold in the cereal until they are completely coated with marshmallow.

  • Using a rubber spatula or your fingers, press gently into the prepared pan. It works best to spray your fingertips with Pam and spread the mixture into the pan.
  • We like to reserve a few of the marshmallows from the cereal to place on top of the finished bars.

  • Let them set for about 30 minutes. Then slice and serve.
