Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of Lucky Charms Cereal
  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • ice cream

Directions:

  1. Start by spraying a baking sheet with nonstick baking spray.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the marshmallows and butter and put in the microwave for 2 minutes, stopping to stir in at each minute interval.
  3. Once the marshmallows are completely melted and combined with butter, mix in the lucky charms and stir well so that all the cereal pieces are evenly coated with marshmallow.
  4. Pour the cereal-marshmallow mixture onto the baking sheet and press down with a rubber spatula, flattening as you go.
  5. Allow to cool and then cut into squares to make your sandwiches. You can also use cookie cutters as well. I love this pack of fun cookie cutters on Amazon for all holidays!

Enjoy!!!
