I caught my little leprechauns trying to steal a box of Lucky Charms.

Of course they were happy to help when I needed the marshmallows removed.

Sorting Out Lucky Charms Marshmallows #LuckyCharms

When dreaming up this recipe, I consciously worked to offset the sweetness of the cereal with some saltiness.

These Lucky Charm Bar Cookies are a mash up of White Chocolate Decadence Brownies and Salted Peanut Chews - a blondie brownie crust topped with a layer of toasted marshmallows and a crunchy, peanut-filled white chocolate topping. Don't forget to serve with a daily recommended serving of milk.

Lucky Charms Bar Cookies Recipe
Crust
1 cup crushed Lucky Charms cereal, oat pieces only (approx. 2 cups cereal = 1 cup crushed)
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 egg yolks

Topping
2-3 cups miniature marshmallows (traditional kind, not from cereal)
1 package (12 oz) white chocolate chips
2/3 cup corn syrup
3 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups salted peanuts
1 cup Lucky Charms, oat pieces
Lucky Charms marshmallows to garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, crush 2 cups Lucky Charms cereal oat pieces until a fine flour. Pour into a medium bowl and add remaining dry ingredients (flour, salt, soda and powder). In a large mixing bowl or food processor, blend together softened butter, brown sugar, eggs and a vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients on low speed until well incorporated. Spray a 9 x 13 glass pan with cooking spray and spread batter evenly in pan.

Bake for 12-15 minutes until edges turn golden. Immediately sprinkle miniature marshmallows over brownie crust and bake an additional 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows just begin to puff.

Cool while preparing topping.

In a large sauce pan over low heat, melt together white chocolate chips, corn syrup, and butter. Stir constantly until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Stir in peanuts and cereal. Immediately spoon warm topping over marshmallows. Garnish with Lucky Charms marshmallows (assuming the marshmallows you removed to begin are still available). Refrigerate until firm. Cut into bars. Makes approximately 36 bars.
