I'm fully aware you can eat Lucky Charms cereal year round but it seems especially delicious around St. Patrick's Day. And because I buy sugar cereal for my kids only on special occasions (i.e., Christmas and when I'm out of town), I like to make the most of the time it's in the pantry.
Last year I made Lucky Charms treats and Lucky Charms pudding cookies, so I thought why not try Lucky Charms bar cookies? They require less oven time and a slightly different recipe than pudding cookies but just as many marshmallows.
I almost didn't post these Lucky Charms bar cookies because my pan was slightly bigger than called for and my cookie bars slightly flatter than I'd hoped. But they taste so dang good and freeze so well (there's nothing like a frozen cookie at 10:30 p.m.), I thought I'd share them just the same.
Next time I think I'll try them in an 11x14-inch pan at 350 degrees instead of 375. Or maybe I'll buy a smaller jelly roll pan. I mean, who doesn't love an excuse to buy more kitchenware? Not this girl.
