Ok. I may have gotten a bit carried away…and to boot, I have no one to eat these yummy treats…guess I am taking them to friends later today!
Who can resist brownies. I just bake mine from a box, but they are still so yummy! Cut them with a shamrock cookie cutter, add some green powdered sugar on top, and you have St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Brownies!
(Note: To make green powdered sugar, mix powdered sugar with green food coloring. But be warned! I used almost an entire bottle of green food coloring to about 1 cup of powdered sugar! It takes a lot of food coloring! When you do this, the green food coloring will clump together. Don’t worry, just stir it for a bit, then push it all through a sieve. Add more food coloring and repeat until the powdered sugar is as dark of a green as you like it, then sprinkle on top of the brownies!)
I had this thought at the grocery store while in the cereal aisle, that if rice crispy treats were good, wouldn’t Lucky Charms make good rice crispy-type treats too? And they are totally St. Patrick’s Day worthy!
Just mix about 6 cups of Lucky Charms (I used the store brand) with about 1/2 stick of melted butter and 10.5 ounces of melted marshmallows. Put in a 9×13 pan and enjoy! (Or, add 1 tsp of vanilla like I did HERE for a more flavorful version!)
Happy Baking and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
