We received a billion boxes of Lucky Charms' limited edition 50th birthday cereal in the test kitchen the other week and I just about died—I love making cereal dessert recipes and I have a special weakness for marshmallow bits. Of course I hoarded all of the Charms at my station (and decided to turn 'em into a few next-level treats for Saint Patrick's Day)! These new Lucky Charms are sort of fancy. All of the marshmallows are green—perfect for our purposes, don't you think!?
Good Housekeeping just posted my collection of recipes. Head over there for the full spread—and some cool info about Lucky Charms (like, did you know they started as just Cheerios with chopped up Circus Peanuts tossed in?)—or snag my favorite recipe of the bunch, below!
