Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 bag (10 oz) large marshmallows
  • 6 cups Lucky Charms™ cereal

  • Green gel food color

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In 3-quart or larger saucepan, melt 5 tablespoons butter over medium-low heat. Add marshmallows. Cook, stirring constantly, until marshmallows are almost melted. Remove from heat; immediately stir in 6 cups Lucky Charms™ cereal.
  • 3
    Pour mixture into pan. With rubber spatula, press mixture down to fit evenly in pan. Cool about 30 minutes.
  • 4
    Microwave 8 oz almond-flavored candy coating (almond bark) as directed on bag. Add green gel food color to reach desired color.

    Cut cooled cereal mixture into 4 rows by 4 rows to make 16 bars. Dip bottom of each bar into melted candy coating, spread evenly. Place coating side up on sheet of waxed paper; let stand until coating is set before serving.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Think this Lucky Charms™ treat can't possibly get any tastier? Stir in 1 cup white vanilla baking chips with the cereal for a loaded bar!
  • tip 2
    This quick, no-bake Lucky Charms™ recipe can be customized—try it with your favorite cereal.
  • tip 3
    The secret for cutting bars easily is to line the pan with foil. Turn the pan upside down and tear off a piece of foil longer than pan. Smooth foil around the pan bottom, then remove. Turn pan over, and gently fit shaped foil into pan. When it is time to cut the bars, just lift the baked bar with the foil out of the pan, peel back foil and cut. This also makes cleanup extra easy.
  • tip 4
    Be sure to use gel food color to tint the almond bark in this Lucky Charms™ dessert recipe. Liquid food color can cause the melted almond bark to clump up when mixing.
