Lucky Leprechaun Bars

Saint Patrick’s Day is such a fun color-themed holiday. While you definitely cannot forget to wear your green, I also wanted to try eating something green for breakfast (aside from Green Eggs&Ham).

These bars were super simple to make, total prep to munch down time is 15 minutes! Here’s how I made them.

Ingredients

6 cups Lucky Charms (or similar) cereal

1 10oz package marshmallows

3 drops green food coloring

2 tsp vanilla extract

4 tbsp butter

  1. In large bowl, melt marshmallows, butter and extract together. Heat for 30 seconds, stir, repeat until melted.
  2. Mix in green food coloring (optional)
  3. Cup by cup stir cereal into marshmallow mixture
  4. Pour and even out into heavily greased baking sheet

I tossed my pan in the freezer for 10 minutes to let it set extra well. I then cut my bars out with an extra-greased pizza cutter, and our family gobbled them up quickly!

These are a great way to give your breakfast that extra oomph for this magical holiday!
