Lucky Charm Cookies are the perfect last minute St Patricks Day treat! They are not only super fun they are SUPER YUMMY!!
Are you a Lucky Charm?
I was strolling down eh cereal aisle the other day, remembering all the kid cereal I ate growing up. Everything from Coco Puffs to Captain Crunch (I liked the one with berries) to Cookie Crunch… and then I saw Lucky Charms. I LOVED the marshmallows in Lucky Charms so much.
The unicorn was my favorite one, but I was also a big rainbow fan as well. As I was standing there reminiscing for a second it hit me… let’s put them into a cookie for a fun St Patty’s Day treat!!
It starts with the dough
I have been working on a new chocolate chip cookie dough that has cream of tarter in it and decided to try it with the lucky charm marshmallows. I have to tell you it was perfection. To make each cookie the same size, also ensuring they cook evenly, I use this cookie scoop. It is the perfect size.
So why cream of tarter? It adds that little extra something that gives each cookie crispy edges and a chewy center. I am not a scientist but all I know is that it works. This is going to be my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe going forward so just get ready.
To make these cookies extra lucky I put the marshmallows in the dough and on top of the cookies when they came out of the oven. I love how they give the cookie a little extra sweetness and a bit of crunch for extra fun.
I couldn’t find the marshmallow only cereal so I had to pick mine out of the cereal by hand but if you can find just the marshmallows box these cookies can come together in no time… in under a hour. This would also be a fun activity for the kids to help get them involved.
It is Lucky Charm Time!
