Deliciously Sprinkled

Lucky Charms Munch

Lucky Charms Party Mix, Pretzel Party Mix

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 Charms 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’m always trying to come up with an excuse to make this munch as often as possible because it’s just so delicious!

Lucky Charms Party Mix, Pretzel Party Mix

JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

  I get a lot of questions asking me how many cups of marshmallows I used for this Lucky Charms Munch, and I would have to say that I used at least 1 1/2 cups of marshmallows. And if you don’t want to pick out all the marshmallows from the cereal, you can just buy a bag of marshmallows….making this munch even easier to make!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you use white chocolate baking bars for this recipe. I like to use the Ghirardelli White Chocolate Baking Bars. BUT if all you have is white chocolate chips, here is a tip to make sure you melt the chocolate chips correctly. When I melt chocolate chips, I like to add 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.

 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.

    Hi! This looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it! However, every time I try to pour melted white chocolate baking bars over m&ms, my m&ms always seem to melt, making everything not very cute. haha, how do you avoid this?! Thanks (:

    • Jenn — April 3rd, 2015 @ 8:25 am

      I would recommend leaving the M&Ms out. Pour the chocolate over the pretzels and marshmallows first and then add in the M&Ms. This way your not pouring the melted chocolate directly onto the M&Ms. Hope this helps and enjoy! :)

    How many of each colour of the candy melts should I melt?

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — March 8th, 2015 @ 10:23 am

      About a 1/2 a cup of each colored candy melt.

    This looks so yummy!!! Gonna make it  tomorrow for a party. but what are these “candy melts” you speak of? Will it still be just as good without them?

  5. Amanda — October 7, 2014 at 3:05 pm

    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.

    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! :)

    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!

        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…

        • Jenn Kurkiewicz — June 12th, 2014 @ 1:08 pm

          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! :)

          • Diane — June 12th, 2014 @ 11:40 pm

            Thanks for letting me know. It does look pretty colorful.. with no beige cereal pieces in there!
