I love Lucky Charms.

My favorite breakfast when I was little was either a strawberry toaster strudel, S’mores poptart, cinnamon-sugar donut, or a bowl of Lucky Charms. Or my mom’s homemade waffles. I have always liked my sugar, yes. 😉

Breakfast looks a little different these days for me, but there is one thing that will never change: I will always love me Lucky Charms! And it was only a matter of time until I made dessert with them. You will adore these cereal bars!

They are rice krispie treats with a colorful little marshmallow makeover. I also used the MAX amount of marshmallow that I could because let’s face it – I love marshmallow goo. Who doesn’t?!

Extra marshmallow on top of the actual Lucky Charms marshmallows. Double the marshmallow fun.

To really make the treats feel special, I dipped the bottoms in melted white chocolate. They remind me of the packaged Lucky Charms treats you can find at the store.

My treats are not as hard or stale-tasting as the store-bought kind.  And the white chocolate actually tastes like white chocolate. AND you get more than 6 in a box – my recipe makes 18 extra large bars. Homemade always wins in my book. 🙂

Lucky Charms Treats

To start, get your Lucky Charms cereal ready.

I used 6 cups of cereal, which will leave you with some leftover in a normal 14 oz box.

Lucky Charms Cereal

Set the cereal aside. Melt 1/2 stick (4 Tablespoons) of butter over low heat. Add one 10 oz bag of marshmallows PLUS 1 extra cup. I’m sorry, but I’m making you buy extra marshmallows. Trust me, it is so worth it to add that extra cup. It will make your bars so sticky, gooey, and full of those glorious stretchy marshmallow strings.

When I’m making any kind of rice krispies treat, I always use more butter (and less cereal) than your typical recipe. The marshmallows are what harden and turn your treats to rocks the next day, so you want to butter them up as much as you can. When you are melting the two together, be sure to do so on very low heat and constantly stir. You want the mixture to be very buttery.

Once the marshmallows are melted with the butter, remove from heat, pour the Lucky Charms in and stir it all together, making sure to do so gently – you don’t want to break the cereal.

After it is all stirred together, transfer to a 9×13 baking pan.

Be sure to not press the treats into the pan with force. That’s what creates a hard cereal treat! Instead, you want to mold them into the pan’s shape by very, very gently pressing down with a spatula. I spray the backside of my spatula with non-stick spray for ease.

Allow the treats to set for about 2 hours at room temperature before cutting. I do not refrigerate my treats because that is what makes them rock hard. Once you have them cut into 18 rectangles (or larger/smaller), dip them into melted white chocolate.

I used 16 ounces of melting white chocolate from Ghirardelli that I found on sale at the store. You may use ANY kind of white chocolate made for melting, not white chocolate chips. You could also use candy melts (found at craft stores) or almond bark (found at Walmart, Target, and most grocery stores) for dipping as well.

If dipping isn’t your forte, you could always just add white chocolate chips to the cereal before coating with the melted butter/marshmallow.

The cereal bars aren’t as soft as my rice krispie treats, but that is only because Lucky Charms is a much crunchier cereal. Think of biting into one of these treats as if you were eating a spoon of Marshmallow Fluff topped with Lucky Charms and white chocolate. Amazing, huh? These are so easy to make and there is NO baking involved. Perfect for any last minute get togethers or parties you may have for St. Patrick’s Day, or any day of the year.

Aren’t they pretty? And may I add… magically delicious, too.

White Chocolate Lucky Charms Treats

  • Author: Sally
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 hours, 30 minutes
  • Yield: 18 squares
  • Category: Bars
  • Method: Baking
  • Cuisine: American


Take a break from traditional rice krispie treats and make these super gooey Lucky Charms Treats instead. And dip them in white chocolate!


  • 6 cups Lucky Charms cereal
  • 4 Tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 10 ounce bag of marshmallows + 1 cup (extra cup is strongly recommended)
  • 16 ounces melting white chocolate* (or almond bark or candy melts)


  1. Spray 9×13 baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add the marshmallows until they are just about fully melted into the butter. Some chunks of marshmallow may remain. Add in the Lucky Charms cereal and stir until the cereal is fully coated.
  3. Pour mixture into prepared baking pan and gently spread out evenly. I sprayed the back of a large spatula with non-stick spray and gently pressed the mixture without packing it down. Allow to set for 2 hours at room temperature before cutting into rectangles or squares, whichever shape/size you prefer.
  4. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside. Melt the white chocolate according to package instructions. Hold the treat and dip the bottom into white chocolate, making sure to coat it generously. Place treats white chocolate side up on prepared baking sheet. Allow chocolate to set at room temperature for about 10 minutes. Store treats at room temperature for up to 1 week.


  1. White Chocolate: If you don’t want to dip them into white chocolate, you could add 1 cup of white chocolate chips to the cereal before coating with the melted butter/marshmallow.

  1. Homemade is ALWAYS better! This Lucky Charms version of Rice Krispie Treats is so fun and perfect for St Patty’s Day coming up. You certainly don’t have to convince me to buy an extra bag of marshmallow just for that extra cup. I’ll take extra marshmallow any day… and will probably use that second bag just as quickly as I did the first in another yummy marshmallow-y dessert! Maybe possibly even in a fluffernutter version of Rice Krispie Treats?! YUMMM 🙂

    1. extra marshmallows all the time. and a fluffernutter rice krispie treat is now the only thing on my mind, Elaine 🙂

  2. Homemade is definitely always better. My toddler just experienced Lucky Charms for the first time at daycare yesterday. She got to sort the marshmallows, and then I immediately thought of the jingle for the cereal (pink hearts, orange stars, yellow diamonds, green clovers, blue diamonds and purple horseshoes!). The purple horseshoes were such a big deal because they were new. 🙂 I bet she would love these treats!

  3. I love Lucky Charms! Growing up and even in my early twenties, I never went a day without my big bowl of Lucky Charms! They are one of my favorite cereals, that I haven’t had in years!! Love you recipe!! Now I need some Lucky Charms! 🙂

  4. Ohh My goodness these look to die for! When I was growing up I was only allowed sugary breakfasts at my grandmothers house where we had Lucky Charms, Pops and Raspberry Toaster Strudel… the Toaster Strudel was definitely my favorite with the Lucky Charms coming in a close second!

    1. I LOVE toaster strudels and haven’t had one in years! My sister always loved Pops, but I was a lucky charms and fruit loops gal 🙂

  5. The little kid in me is ALL OVER this treat Sally! I used to beg my mom to buy Lucky Charms, but haven’t picked a box in forever. What a fun way to use them!
    (PS. I did enjoy a Toaster Streudel two weeks ago for old time’s sake. Just as perfect as I remembered. Go for it next time you are at the store!)

  6. Ahhhh Lucky Charms were my favorite and I haven’t had them in foreverrrr, now I’m having a major craving!

  7. omg sally I feel like I write this on every freaking post but DUDE THEY’RE SO CUTE AAAAHHH. I’m a lame-o when it comes to cereal (plain ole cheerios for me) but I seriously never thought to use lucky charms in cereal treats. BRILLIANT.

  8. So cute that there are these “lucky charms” hidden in these treats. Can’t imagine any child not loving it! : )

  9. Sally I’m a huge!! fan of RKTreasts and cereal bars like this. I love that you used a full stick of butter (I learned from my now fave recipe that a full stick – none of this half stick business) is the way to go. And that you also tacked on an extra cup of marshmallows. The goo factor is so evident and love it! And of course, the white choc base. Swoon! They look amazing! And I love Lucky Charms 🙂 A fave as a kid and even now!

  10. I love all the marshmallow goo! And, the fact that you dipped them in white chocolate…OH MY! I definitely agree with you about homemade krispie treats, of any kind, are far better than store bought. Sally, you’ve totally motivated me to go visit the cereal isle today! (=

  11. I love how often you post! It’s obvious you work really hard! Sometimes I just look through the pictures because they are so beautiful. You’ve got serious talent! Thank you for all the time you put into making such an awesome site.

    1. Hey Bethany! Can I give you a huge THANK YOU for your very sweet comment? Honestly, it made my day to read it yesterday. I’m glad you enjoy my photography and the frequency of my posts/recipes. 🙂 Thank you for reading!

  12. Yum! I totally agree about homemade treats. These look a thousand times better than store-bought!

  13. These are so fun and definitely was one of my favorite cereals growing up. Love that they’re dipped in white chocolate. That can only make them better!

  14. I LOVE Lucky Charms. Jordan begs me for them but I never buy them because she’ll eat one bowl and I’ll eat the rest! And I SO love double marshmallow. Much better that way!

  15. These look adorable. We’ll definitely be making them! I made the mint chocolate chip cheese cake brownies and the cake batter chocolate chip cookies. Both are hits! I’m going back through your website and staying on top of your new recipes!! I’m going to make the brownies with peanut butter frosting and chocolate covere pretzels for my school’s potluck lunch next week!

    1. Hey Meredith! I’m so happy you are enjoying all of my recipes so far – you have picked GREAT ones to make. I love those mint cheesecake brownies. And the PB/Pretzel/Chocolate Brownies. I can tell you like brownies. 🙂

  16. Holy cow – always 1 ahead of me! 😉 I planned on making these this week!

    I use an entire stick of butter with the marshmallow mixture. Yum. That is how my mom taught me to make them.

  17. So cute! Have you seen the special edition Saint Patrick’s Day Lucky Charms that have all (or at least mostly) clover hat marshmallows? I have to say Lucky Charms Treats are a guilty pleasure…just like Lucky Charms cereal. In general I like more virtuous breakfast cereals (corn flakes!!!), but oh man, Lucky Charms…:D Thanks for the recipe! Yours look way better than the cement store-bought ones.

    1. Hey Caley!! I haven’t seen those lucky charms in the store, no! I like healthier breakfast cereals as well like I mentioned above – I can’t imagine starting my workday with Lucky Charms, although – that would be nice. 🙂 Kashi and bran flakes for me and then – lucky charms treats for dessert. 🙂

  18. I LOVE your superfluous amount of marshmallow. I’m addicted to the super gooey/sticky types of rice krispies so your tip of adding an additional cup of it is perfect! I need to try this soon with your tip! I bet i won’t make it any other way 😉

    1. Teresa – I love that idea! I’ve never seen Chocolate Lucky Charms in the store – just online. I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled!

  19. mmmm…yummy! i love lucky charms and rice crispy bars..why not combine them?? these look sooo ooey gooey and awesome 🙂 i remember when i was little, i’d always add more marshmallows to my bowl.. and i would always save them for last since they were my favorite!

  20. Dessert minds think alike! I was totally going to make these today and I saw your post and I wanted them even more! I love dipping Rice Krispies in chocolate! And I will look for any excuse to do so!
