Throwback Thursday Lucky Charms Rice Krispie Treats

This is a post from St. Patrick’s celebration time in 2010.

The boys are so into St. Patrick’s Day this year. Everyday this month they have come home with new stories of Leprechauns, rainbows, and four leaf clovers and green, green, green.  A leprechaun even visited their classrooms. Apparently he was a very mischievous little guy–he trashed the place; threw all the erasers on the ground; broke the chalk; turned the pictures upside down; changed the desks around.  Pretty crazy sounding stuff.

So to honor all the fun this weekend for the boys (and me too), I am making Rice Krispy Treats with both Rice Krispies and Lucky Charms…because they are magically delicious and it is a St. Patrick’s Day holiday weekend.

St. Patrick’s Day Rice Krispy & Lucky Charm Treat Recipe

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
– OR –
4 cups miniature marshmallows
3 cups Rice Krispies
3 cups Lucky Charms

Directions:

In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add both cereals. Stir until well coated. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares.

Tips:

For best results, use fresh marshmallows.
1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow crème can be substituted for marshmallows.
Diet, reduced calorie or tub margarine is not recommended.
Store no more than two days at room temperature in airtight container. To freeze, place in layers separated by wax paper in airtight container. Freeze for up to 6 weeks. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

Next time you plan to celebrate or host a party please feel free to use this recipe or change it up with Trix or Froot loops, Sugar Corn Pops–any cereal that might match the celebration or party theme. I can’t wait to serve the boys their dessert on one of RoyalTart’s pretty green plates as seen in last Thursdays Throwback post.

Maybe for Easter I will make the treats egg-shaped or use Trix or Froot Loops…so many holidays to celebrate, party favors to make and parties to host…so little time.

Cheers,
Trish

Throwback Thursday-St. Patrick’s Day Celebration

Standard

Thanks to Facebook we are well aware that we have some pretty great stuff in our old files and archives.  Here is a celebration I created during my days running Royal Tart. It’s heavy on green as any St. Patrick’s Day can be, but I added a wee bit o’ the sophistication and zany with the green zebra place mats. This is one of those tablescapes that can be adult in feel or family fun in feel depending on what you want to serve in those long tall beer glasses–lucky charms or beer–of course.

It may feel like I am sharing this a bit early (or if you are an organized sort, not so much) but I wanted to give you time to get your creative juices flowing and your table setting style put together; you have about three weeks. Go! Slante!
