There are many, many different types of marshmallow treats out there these days. Right around this time of year, marshmallow treats made with Lucky Charms seem to be all the rage. 

It makes sense, Lucky Charms and St. Patrick’s Day are a great match! Today I made White Chocolate Charmed Treats, or Lucky Charm Treats made with white chocolate.

This is one of those treats that’s a lot of fun to make for St. Patrick’s Day. They’re especially fun to make with the little helpers, your kids.

Grab your kids and go have some fun in the kitchen!

Triple-Chocolate Krispie Jumbo Cupcakes

Rice Krispie treats get a fun and chocolatey twist with three different kinds of chocolate. These cupcakes are made from Rice Krispies (toasted rice cereal), no cake involved. Be warned – these are crazy good!

Most people really do love Rice Krispie treats! Yes, I know there are some people out there that simply aren’t fans. It happens, just like with anything else.

I promise you, most people will love these! :)

The trick with a triple chocolate treat like this is to create that fine balance between chocolatey enough to make it really special, yet balanced enough to make it not too heavy for the average person to eat.

I’ve taken the guess work out if it for you, so you can easily whip these together and be the Talk of the Table that night!

Be honest, are you a St. Patirck’s Day fan?

Well, whether you are or aren’t there’s no reason why you can’t have a little fun making these Charming Minty Marshmallow Treats. These slightly minty treats are great the way they are! But the best part is there are a million ways to adapt these delights.

Let’s take a look at how to whip these charming treats!

So first we have the Limited Edition Lucky Charms for St. Patrick’s Day. If you can find them at a grocery store near you for a decent price, that’s great, if not go with regular Lucky Charms.

Then we have a close-up of the bright green Lucky Charms. Aren’t they fun?

Of course you start out with melting your butter and marshmallows together until mixture is smooth. Then, I added a 1/4 cup of Andes mints, chopped to the marshmallow mixture. The chopped Andes just kind of melt in and add a great taste to the treats.

* MM Note: I went light on the Andes Mints only because anything mint is tricky around here. Basically, mint is a tough sell around here! You could certainly add more Andes Mints or even mini chocolate chips, if you wanted.

I used two jumbo muffin pans for the Charming Minty Marshmallow Treats. It’s just kind of fun to have the treats in a different shape.

You could just as easily use a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray to make regular bars. Then once the bars cool, cut them into squares, or use a cookie cutter for any shape you want.

Charming Minty Marshmallow Treats

DIRECTIONS

1. Spray a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

* I like to spray the bottom of my pot with nonstick cooking spray when I make any kind of marshmallow treats. It makes clean up super easy! 

2. Melt butter and miniature marshmallows in a large pot over medium-low heat, stirring constantly. Once mixture is completely melted and smooth, add the chopped Andes Mints, then add the cereal and stir until completely combined.

3. Evenly distribute the marshmallow mixture into the sprayed pan, or sprayed mega muffin cups, and press it into an even layer.

4. Immediatemly top with any combination of chocolate chips, Marshmallow Bits, or St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles, if desired. Allow to set completely before removing from muffin pans, or cutting, if using a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Transfer to a serving plate and serve.
