Lucky charm cereal bar are a fun easy snack for kids with whole grain

As a mom with young kids it’s fun to celebrate holidays – big and small.  Here is an easy recipe that our family makes for fun St. Patrick’s Day food.  This fun snack has three ingredients and only takes ten minutes to make.  While it’s not quite as magical as a leprechaun, it’s pretty close 😉

How to Make an Easy St. Patrick’s Day Snack

A cute and unique snack can be fun for the kids to help make as well as eat.  A variation of this cereal bar is one of the first snacks that I made with my son.  We practiced measuring cereal and as he got older he learned to stir the marshmallows and cereal together.  We really enjoy doing quick activities like this together.

We melted 4 tablespoons of butter, stirred in 8 ounces of marshmallows until they were melted and then added 6 cups of Lucky Charms cereal.

If you really like the cute marshmallow in the cereal you (or your kiddo) can pick some extra marshmallows out of the remaining cereal and sprinkle on top.  I like to wet my fingers to make it easiest to smooth the mixture out.  Cut into pieces of your desired size and enjoy.
