Truth is, we don’t keep Lucky Charms on hand in our house. Probably because we’d eat the whole box in less than two days. Lucky Charms was my favorite cereal growing up so when I noticed St. Patrick’s Day was quickly approaching, I decided to try my luck at some Lucky Charms cookies.
Let me tell you, these cookies are suuhhh-weet!! So sweet, they’ll jet you right off on a magical ride straight to the end of the rainbow. If you find that pot of gold, be sure to remember yours truly.
These Leprechaun Cookies are great for St. Patrick’s Day or any day of the week!
St. Patty’s Day is right around the corner, and I’ve made this cookie recipe easy enough for you to whip right up just in time. Grab a box of Lucky Charms while you’re at the store this weekend and chances are the rest of the ingredients can be found right in your kitchen cabinet!
Slice up your butter and cream together with granulated and packed brown sugar.
Throw in an egg and some vanilla extract. Mix well.
Add some baking soda, flour, and Jello vanilla instant pudding mix and stir away. (Note: If your batter looks too thick, add a little milk)
Now my favorite part… dump in some white chocolate chips and Lucky Charms cereal. Using a rubber spatula, fold into the batter by hand.
Spoon dough onto a baking sheet and bake 8-10 minutes.
Allow to cool and enjoy this special Leprechaun treat!
Mmmmm, mmmm good.
Excuse me while I go hide in a corner with 6 or so of these sweet thangs.
