LUCKY CHARMS MUNCH INGREDIENTS

 LUCKY CHARMS CEREAL: 1 box of Lucky Charms cereal. 

 PRETZEL STICKS: 6 cups of pretzel sticks. 

 WHITE CHOCOLATE BAKING BARS: 1 (8 oz.) white chocolate baking bar. 

 M&MS: 1 (9 oz.) bag of M&M’s. 

 SPRINKLES: 1/4 cup of your favorite sprinkles.

Lucky Charms Munch fills a vibrant lime green colored plastic serving bowl.

 HOW TO MAKE LUCKY CHARMS MUNCH

You’re in luck! This snack mix is quick and easy as can be.

PICK OUT THE MARSHMALLOWS: Pour a box of cereal out onto a large baking sheet. Pick out all the marshmallows and set them aside.

MIX IT UP: In a large bowl mix the pretzels, M&M’s, and marshmallows together.

HEAT THE CHOCOLATE AND TOSS: In a medium microwavable bowl, microwave the white chocolate chips for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until the chips are completely melted. Pour them over the mixture and toss until evenly coated.

SPRINKLE, LET STAND, BREAK, AND ENJOY: Spread the mixture in single layer on baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle with candy sprinkles and drizzle with melted pink, yellow, and green candy melts. Let stand until set, about 15 minutes. Gently break up the mixture and enjoy!

Rainbow straws and napkins are placed next to a very full bowl of Lucky Charms munch.

ADDITIONAL TIPS FOR THE BEST LUCKY CHARMS MUNCH

  • 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. Oh, and if you don’t want to pick out all the marshmallows from the cereal, you can just buy a bag of marshmallows. That makes 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. However, 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 every 30 seconds until the chocolate is smooth.
  • I used pink, vibrant green, and yellow candy melts for this recipe. You can usually find them in the baking aisle at WalMart or Target.
  • Feel free to use your favorite mix-in’s like peanuts, Chex cereal, semi-sweet chocolate instead of using white chocolate to coat the munch, etc. The options are endless!

KITCHEN TOOLS NEEDED

Here’s what I used to whip up a batch of my favorite St. Paddy’s Day snack mix!

  • LARGE MIXING BOWL: This extra large mixing bowl makes it easy to mix all the ingredients. I use it for SO much in my kitchen!
  • BAKING SHEET: You will need a large 16×11 inch baking sheet for this easy recipe.
  • SILICONE BAKING MAT OR PARCHMENT PAPER: If you don’t have a silicone baking mat…YOU NEED ONE! Seriously, it’s a total life saver when it comes to making sweet treats.

Rainbow sprinkles cover the top of homemade lucky charms snack mix.

This St. Patrick’s Day, make some pretty green Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes to accompany your sweet snack mix! Keeping with the green theme, check out my leprechaun friendly Mint Oreo Truffles and Mint Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars.

  8. It sure is addicting. I gave it a try and i now just cannot stop. My kids have also joined me! and they are loving it. Awesome

  9. 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 (:

    • 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! 🙂

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

  12. 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?

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

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

    • 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! 🙂

  15. 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!

  16. Oh Yum!! That looks like so much fun…and delicious Jenn! Thank you so much for sharing with us at Best of the Weekend. Pinned to our party board. 🙂

  21. This looks so exciting and colourful! 🙂

    • Thanks, Jessica! It’s so delicious and super easy to make 🙂

      • 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! 🙂

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