Lucky Charm Cookies

Lucky Charm Cookies are the perfect St Patricks Day treat!  They are not only super fun they are SUPER YUMMY!!

Are you a Lucky Charm?

I was strolling down the 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.

Charms everywhere!

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!
