becca Rebecca Endicott

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, and that means it’s time to start stocking up on seasonal treats!

This holiday — which falls on March 17 every year and features tons of delicious food — is often associated with Ireland, the color green, and lots of good luck. With that in mind, we decided to put together a recipe that will serve as a totally tasty good luck charm for your St. Paddy’s festivities.

It’s a seasonal take on classic marshmallow squares. You probably enjoyed these chewy, crispy treats as a kid, but we bet they weren’t quite as dolled up as our lucky version!

This version is super simple to make. You’ll just need crispy cereal, marshmallows, a few of those dehydrated cereal marshmallows, and a bit of green food coloring. Before you know it, you’ll have a crowd-pleasing treat that will make everyone happy come St. Patrick’s Day.
