Hey guys, it’s about to get real nostalgic up in here. Think back to the days when you were a young little thing, watching cartoons in your jammies on Saturday mornings while eating your favorite cereal. That’s where my head is at today. It’s been a while since we have baked anything with cereal- flashback to our fruity pebble cupcakes. It’s also been a while since I’ve actually been able to watch television in my jammies on a Saturday morning. But that is a complaint for another time. My love for cereal is deep and unconditional, so it was time for me to give it some attention. As a result, these Lucky Charms cookies made their way into my life. And my mouth. Several times.
Everyone knows that the only reason anybody eats Lucky Charms is because of those delicious little dehydrated mallows of delight. That’s literally the only reason. And I dare you to tell me otherwise. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, but that cereal would be nothing without the marshmallows. Crunchy pieces of air to be exact.
So, I got myself a bag of Lucky Charms, pulled up a chair and picked out all of the marshmallows. All of them. Kindly leaving my parents with a big bag of the leftover boring- and frankly, tasteless- part of the cereal. Sorry. It was all for a good cause though because these cookies are da bomb.
I didn’t want to get too fancy with this recipe. One of the reasons I am such a big lover of cereal is the fact that it is so low maintenance. Bowl, spoon, milk, cereal, done. It’s fast, it requires minimal effort, and it’s delicious. Three of my favorite things. It is perfect for nights when I literally cannot muster up any kind of motivation to prepare an actual meal. (Most nights)
These cookies are really good, and honestly, just really fun. I wanted the marshmallows to be the star of the show, but I felt like they needed a little something else, so I added some white chocolate chips, and they were perfect!
I like to place a few random white chocolate chips and marshmallows on top of the cookies right when they come out of the oven so people can tell immediately what they are and what’s in them. (The rainbow ones are my personal favorite).
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to put on my fleece onesie, eat these cookies in front of the TV, and pretend I’m 12. It’s blog research.
*Side note– If you are an adult and you do not own a onesie, then you seriously need to invest in one. Will you look ridiculous in it? Yes. Will you never want to take it off of your body? Also yes.
Also, here is a link to marshmallows you can buy to make these cookies. Picking them out of the cereal is fun and all but….you could also just buy them and save yourself some time. And sanity.
Have a great weekend!
