Lucky Charms Munch

Lucky Charms Munch by Deliciously Sprinkled

With St. Patrick’s Day only a little over a week away, the popular cereal Lucky Charms always seems to steal the show as the  ingredient of choice for cupcakes, snack mixes, and rice crispy treats.

Since my favorite cereal of all time is Lucky Charms I had to make something festive for St. Patrick’s Day using the best part of the cereal, which of course is the lucky charm marshmallows.  And that’s what led me to make this highly addicting sweet and salty Lucky Charms Munch!

The combination of Lucky Charms marshmallows, M&M’s, pretzels, white chocolate and SPRINKLES is what keeps everyone diving into this mix of goodness over and over again. I will be making this munch  not only for St. Patrick’s Day because it’s SO addicting it didn’t even last a couple hours at our house before it was all gone!

Lucky Charms Munch

BAKING TIP

Feel free use your favorite mix-in’s like peanuts, chex cereal, semi-sweet chocolate instead of using white chocolate to coat the munch, the options are endless.

  • 1 box Lucky Charms cereal
  • 6 cups pretzel sticks

Directions:

Pour box of cereal out onto a large baking sheet. Pick out all the marshmallows; set aside.

In a large bowl mix the pretzels, M&M's, and marshmallows together. In a medium microwavable bowl, microwave white chocolate chips for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until chips are completely melted. Pour over mixture and toss until evenly coated.

        Am I missing something? .. or do you not use the cereal itself? Just the lucky charm marshmallows. It says put the cereal in a large cookie sheet, separate out that the marshmallows, but it never says anything about the actual cereal bits…

          Hi Diana,

          I did not use the cereal itself, just the lucky charms marshmallows. Surprisingly, there was not much cereal leftover once you pick out all the marshmallows. But if you don’t want to waste the cereal you can use them in the munch or enjoy a bowl of cereal! :)

    This looks delicious! I have a bag of lucky charms marshmallows that I bought at a bulk food store so I just wondering about how many cups of marshmallows you would suggest using. I have no idea how much would be in a box of cereal! Thanks!

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — July 1st, 2014 @ 1:21 pm

      Hi Lindsay,

      I would say at least 1 cup of lucky charms marshmallows would be perfect! :)

      Enjoy!

    What is the secret to melting white chocolate ??? Mine is hard and certainly not pourable…have done it  in micro and double boiler.

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — August 21st, 2014 @ 10:54 am

      Hi BeBe,

      If your melting white chocolate chips, I would suggest adding about 1 teaspoon of shortening to the chocolate chips and microwave in 30 seconds intervals, stirring after each 30 seconds until the chocolate is smooth. If that still doesn’t work, the best white chocolate to use for melting is white chocolate baking bars ( I like to use Ghirardelli White Chocolate Baking Bars). Hopefully, this helps and I hope enjoy the Lucky Charms Munch! It’s on of my favorites! :)

    Can you estimate roughly how many marshmallows it ends up being? I found just the marshmallows at a little country store.

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — October 7th, 2014 @ 4:25 pm

      Hi Amanda!

      I would say at least a 1 to 1 1/2 cups of marshmallows.
