Lucky Charms "Krispie" Treats

Dear Rice Krispie Treat Inventor,

Thank you for inventing your delicious treats.  I have enjoyed them for 31 years. I love that your delicious little no-bake dessert takes only 5 minutes to make, is easy to transport, and is a staple for my camping adventures in the summer.

However, I regret to inform you I will never be making them again.  Because I found something even better:

Lucky Charms Treats.

Yes, I used your basic combination of melted butter and marshmallows.  But I used crunchy, marshmallowy, colorful lucky charms instead, and they are so good.  So, so good.


Now, to achieve the desired results, follow these directions and measurements exactly.  Don’t try to eyeball the cereal amount, or add more to stretch it out and make them thicker.  You want the measurements to be exact to get the exactly perfect proportions of oooey gooey marshmallow goodness to crispy cereal.

Enjoy. 🙂

10.5 bag of small marshmallows
5 cups of Lucky Charms
1 stick of butter
Cooking spray


Spray a 9×13 inch pan lightly with cooking spray and set aside.

In a microwave safe bowl, microwave together your marshmallows and butter.  I do this in 30 second intervals, stirring in between.  Be careful not to burn your marshmallows.  Often, the marshmallows will be done but the butter still not quite melted, but that doesn’t mean you should microwave it some more.  Take it out as soon as the marshmallows are melted and keep stirring.  The butter will melt from the heat of the bowl and the melted marshmallows.

Dump the melted butter/marshmallow mixture into 5 cups of Lucky Charms cereal.  Scrape the marshmallow mixture bowl with a rubber spatula to make sure you get all of it. Mix together with a wooden spoon until all of the cereal is evenly coated.

Dump into your prepared 9×13 inch pan.  Spray the top with a little more cooking spray, and then using your clean hands, press it down until the pan is covered evenly.

Refrigerate about an hour until firm and then enjoy!

  1. I must agree, Shannon. Quite an innovating recipe. I'll be sending this straight to my daughter.Thanks for sharing…P.S. I found this info in my files:) "In 1941, Kellogg's employee Mildred Day concocted and published a recipe for a Camp Fire Girls bake sale consisting of Rice Krispies, melted marshmallows, and margarine. It has remained a very popular snack dubbed Rice Krispies Treats."
