To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day I decided to change things up a little and try these Lucky Charms Cookies! While I’m more of a Cinnamon Toast Crunch kind of girl, these looked fun and festive!
This recipe isn’t very difficult, which is nice. The most time consuming aspect was sorting the cereal. It’s a pretty standard cookie recipe and basically just a sugar cookie recipe with cereal. You’ll mix the actual cereal part into the cookie; reserving the marshmallows to fold into the batter. I did keep a handful of marshmallows out to press into the tops and felt like that made it look prettier. This recipe says to bake for 10-11 minutes (or until the bottom is golden brown). I found that mine weren’t done by that time and had to bake them another 6 minutes or so.
These really looked fun, but personally I found them to be a little too sweet. It definitely tasted like a sugar cookie with marshmallows, so if you enjoy either of those you’ll like these. I didn’t taste the cereal part, though it’s possible that’s what contributed to the sweetness. I also didn’t love the marshmallows, but again, I don’t love Lucky Charms so that’s probably why. I shared these with a friend who enjoyed them and they were fun to make and certainly weren’t bad, but I just wouldn’t make them again for me.
