St. Patrick’s Day is only a little over a week away! 🍀


I love St. Patrick’s Day because I get a reason to use my  favorite cereal, Lucky Charms to make cupcakes, snack mixes, and rice crispy treats.


So if your looking for a fun, easy snack to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, then you have to make this Lucky Charms Munch.


It’s SOOO good and SUPER ADDICTING!  😋


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 MARSHMALLOWS: 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!


 WHITE CHOCOLATE: 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.


CANDY MELTS: I used pink, vibrant green and yellow candy melts. You can find them in the baking aisle at WalMart or Target.


 MIX IN MORE: 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. 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! 🙂

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

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

  6. 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! 🙂

  7. 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!

  8. 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. 🙂

  9. Yumm! Oh my this looks good!

  13. 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!
