.charming treat.

i have a super-easy st. patrick's day treat for you to make. heck, we could all use a little charm any time of year. follow my rainbow...

get yourself some lucky charms. this has always been one of my most magically delicious breakfast cereals that i go to for a treat.

measure out six cups worth. 

throw 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter and 10-14 oz of marshmallows in a pan over medium heat. if you like traditional rice krispie treats, use about 10 oz of marshamallows. if you'd prefer a more gooey pull when you bite into your charming treats, add the extra ounces. 

once your butter and marshmallows are melded together to an ooey gooey consistency, toss in the cereal and remove from the heat.

press your mixture into a sprayed 9 X 13 pan and press until it is near level. 

after a couple of well-occupied hours, (if you're not busy, you are going to be way too tempted to dig in before they're ready), spray or butter a knife and cut your lucky charm treats into squares.
they are perfect in their naked form. full of luck, actually.

however, if you're like me and can't leave well enough alone, take them to another level. use some candy melts to dip your treats into and then sprinkle on some extra green for more good luck.
