Perfect for a last minute St. Patrick’s Day get together, these are so easy to make and “magically delicious!” Growing up, the Original Preppy Hostess took St. Patrick’s Day pretty seriously and along with the green milk, and green bread, I could always count on having one of these bars in my lunch box on St. Patrick’s Day. Traditional Rice Krispie bars are dyed that signature St. Patrick’s Day green, and sprinkled with Lucky Charm marshmallows. After one, you’ll be saying “Kiss me, I’m Irish!” What could be better on this lucky day?
1/4 cup of butter
4 cups of soft marshmallows
5 cups of Rice Krispie cereal
Green food coloring
Approximately 3/4 cup of Lucky Charm’s marshmallows
1. Melt butter over low heat until completely melted. Gradually add marshmallows and stir often to avoid burning them. When marshmallow/butter mixture is completely melted, add green food coloring and mix well. Remove from heat and stir in your Rice Krispie cereal. Once mixture is mostly combined, pour into a baking tin. Sprinkle with Lucky Charm’s marshmallows. Store in an air tight container.
