Ingredients to make lucky charms marshmallow treats
- Butter – just a little to help melt the marshmallows and bring flavor.
- Mini marshmallows – I like to use mini marshmallows best becuase they melt down easily and fast.
- Dehydrated marshmallows – these are the crunchy delicious little marshmallows you find in cereal like Lucky Charms.
- Rice Krispie cereal – crisp rice cereal is easy to find and a classic in marshmallow treat recipes.
Tips and tricks
Making the perfect marshmallow treat isn’t hard but here are a few tips!
- Use fresh marshmallows that are still light and fluffy and not dried out or sticky.
- Don’t press the treats too hard into the pan. If you push too hard the treats will end up very hard versus coming out fresh, light, and fluffy.
- Use a silicone spatula while making the treats so the marshmallow has less to stick too.
- Butter or spray your hands with non-stick spray before pressing the treats into the pan. This also helps so the marshmallow doesn’t stick to your hands.
