Want a quick no bake treat that's a little bit different and sure to be a big hit with the kids? Why not try Lucky charms treats from Ezra Pound Cake?
The reason behind using Rice Krispies in addition to the Lucky Charms is that apparently if you use only Lucky Charms, the bars become as hard as a rock! The Krispies provide just enough floof to keep them chompable.
I'm not sure which Blockette enjoyed more, these bars, or getting to eat the leftover Lucky Charms for Breakfast!
Lucky Charms Treats from Ezra Pound Cake
3 T butter or margarine
4 C (10 oz) mini marshmallows
3 C rice krispie cereal
3 C Lucky Charms Cereal
Sprinkles to garnish
Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Set aside. In a large micro safe bowl, melt 3 T margarine for 30 sec. Add 1 bag of marshmallows and stir until coated. Nuke for 30 sec, stir. If mixture is still lumpy, nuke another 30 sec. At this point you need to work quickly so the marshmallows don't set up.
Add Rice Krispies, and stir until well coated. Stir in the Lucky Charms. Using a spatula, transfer the cereal mixture to your prepared dish. Coat your hands with nonstick spray, and press down the mixture evenly.
While the treats are still warm, add sprinkles, if using. Let the treats cool, and cut into squares.
