- 8 Tablespoons butter
- 16 Ounces bag of mini marshmallows
- 6 Cups Lucky Charms cereal
- 4 Ounces green candy melts (or white chocolate chips with green food coloring added)
- 2 Tablespoons rainbow nonpareil
Grease a 9-inch baking dish and set aside.
In a large saucepan, melt 8 tablespoons of butter.
Once butter is melted, stir in a 16-ounce bag of mini marshmallows and continue stirring until marshmallows are completely melted.
Remove pot from heat and stir in 6 cups of Lucky Charms cereal.
Pour the mixture into your prepared baking dish and very gently press down the mixture with a spatula, spreading it out evenly in the pan.
In a small bowl, melt 4 ounces of green candy melts in the microwave at 30-second intervals until melted.
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the Lucky Charms and sprinkle with rainbow nonpareils. Set aside to let the treats set and chocolate harden, about 1 hour.
Cut into squares and enjoy!
