Lucky Charm Treats (+On the Local News!!)

I mentioned last week that I had some exciting news to share. So here goes; I was asked by my good friend, Lindee Katdare, to join her during Daytime Blue Ridge (a daily TV show that appears on our local NBC affiliate, WSLS) yesterday. When she first asked me, I was excited but hesitant. I knew I wanted to do it, but I also had a lot of nerves. And I will tell you that my 20 year old self never would have agreed. But something inside encouraged me to at least try it. What was the worst that could go wrong? It was a flop and I never did it again. But part of me was eager to step out of my comfort zone and give it a try. And you know what, I LOVED it! I'm so glad I did it!

My segment was in the kitchen where I whipped up some easy treats for St. Patty's Day. 

I have to say, I was pretty nervous before it started. After all, I arrived at the station almost 2 hours before I was scheduled to go "live". And then there's that, it was LIVE! EEK!

But once we got started, it was literally so much fun!! It went by really fast; fastest 4 minutes of my life! Both Natalie and Lindee made the entire experience really enjoyable, comfortable, and fun!!

 Here's a link to the clip if you're interested in watching it!

And I have a say a big "thank you" to April for the awesome advice she wrote to me beforehand. It really helped!!! So thanks!!

And here's the recipe for the easy treat!

Lucky Charm Treats


4 tablespoons butter
1 bag marshmallows
6 cups Lucky Charms cereal


In microwavable bowl, melt butter (30 – 60 seconds).
Once melted, add in your marshmallows and completely coat with melted butter.
Microwave another 90 seconds until marshmallows are melted.
Remove from microwave and immediately add cereal to bowl.
Mix well and spread in a greased 9x13 baking dish.
Spray a spatula with Pam to help press the mixture flat and into the pan.
Let cool about an hour then cut into desired size pieces.
Store in airtight container.


Last year I downloaded a free printable from Lauren Haddox Designs and attached them to treat bags for my daughter's classmates. (I think they are available for purchase on her ETSY site this year.)

These treats are fun to make for the holiday! Let me know if you give them a try! Or if there's another treat you like to make for St. Patrick's Day!
