Irish Cream Lucky Charms Treats


  • Yield: 16-20 servings 1x
Scale

Ingredients

For the Cereal Treats:

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 (16-oz) bag marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt
  • 2 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur
  • 5 cups Lucky Charms cereal

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur (or milk)
  • Pinch of fine salt
  • Sprinkles, for decorating

Instructions

For the Cereal Treats:

  1. Spray a 13 x 9 –inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and then line with a piece of parchment paper. Lightly coat the parchment with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted, add in the marshmallows and salt and stir until the marshmallows are completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
  3. Whisk in the liqueur and then add in the cereal. Working quickly, stir to coat everything evenly in the melted marshmallow mixture.
  4. Press the mixture into the prepared baking pan while it is still warm and pliable, pressing it down evenly. Allow to set for a few minutes before glazing.

For the Glaze:

  1. Whisk together the powdered sugar and liqueur until smooth and pourable. If it is too thick, whisk in a splash of water or milk.
  2. Pour the glaze over top of the cereal treats, spreading it out to evenly coat.
  3. Decorate with sprinkles and allow the cereal treats to set for at least 15 minutes before slicing into bars. I suggest slicing these up on the smaller side – they are super rich!

NOTE:

  1. Feel free to omit the Irish cream entirely in this recipe, for kids and non-drinking adults. They’ll be just as delicious!
