Happy St. Patricks Day!

I usually don't do holiday posts, but I had to make these.  I don't really celebrate St. Patricks day in the traditional sense either.  You know, the whole - wear green, drink a copious amount of green liquor and stumble home in the early hours of March 18th.  It's not really my thing.  What I do love to do is coat cereal in marshmallows.  Then dunk the results in $10/pound Belgian white chocolate, you know, to class them up a bit.  After I tinted the fancy, Belgian white chocolate green.  They're super classy marshmallow treats.  Go make them and celebrate like the Irish cereal-promoting leprechauns celebrate March 17th.


Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats

6 cups Lucky Charms Cereal
1 10-ounce bag Jet-puffed marshmallows
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound white chocolate
Green food coloring

Melt butter in a large pot.  Add marshmallows and stir until melted.  Add Lucky Charms and stir to coat. 

Coat a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.  Pour marshmallowy cereal into the pan.  Coat your hands with cooking spray and gently press marshmallowy cereal into the pan.  Let set for at least 4 hours. 

Turn pan upsidedown to release marshmallow treats.  Cut into reasonable sized bars.  Melt white chocolate in a bowl set over simmering water (or in the microwave).  Add a few drops green food coloring and stir until evenly colored. 

Dunk cereal treats in the chocolate and place on wax paper to set up and harden the chocolate.
