Soft and chewy Lucky Charms cookies that are easy to make and perfect for any St.Patrick’s Day parties or celebrations! 

Lucky Charm Cookies | Sprinkles For Cookies

As a kid, Lucky Charms was my favorite cereal. And yes, I was totally the kid that picked out all the marshmallows while nobody else was looking.

As an adult, I try really hard not to be the jerk who picks out the marshmallows – because nobody likes that person. Instead, I decided to create recipes where you were required to pick out the marshmallows in order to get the ideal flavor.

Things like these Magical Rainbow Bars where I add extra marshmallows on top for decoration. Or these Mini Lucky Charm Bundt Cakes where you have to add a layer of marshmallows at the bottom of the bundt pan before you put in the rest of cereal mixture. See, it’s all for the good of the recipe!

These Lucky Charm cookies are no different. This recipe requires 2 Cups of Lucky Charms and I like to make sure a majority of those 2 cups are marshmallows! Plus, I add a marshmallow to the top of every cookie for decoration (and maximum marshmallow consumption).

This is a fun and easy recipe that gives you delicious results.

Do you have to add the white chocolate drizzle and extra sprinkles? No. But I highly recommend it because it brings the cookie two extra elements of texture. People are always talking about flavor being the most important factor in food. And yes, flavor IS important. But I think texture is an element that is too often overlooked. Think crunchy, smooth, crispy. These are common words we use to describe some of our favorite foods. And guess what? They have nothing to do with flavor. They are all about TEXTURE. People are so hyper-focused on the flavor, they don’t even recognize how big a role texture plays in food. When I am coming up with a recipe, I am always trying to add at least two different elements of texture. It makes the food interesting and more enjoyable to eat.

So like I said, in this recipe the white chocolate drizzle and the sprinkle topping is optional. But I think it really adds something special. And if you are really looking to knock it out of the park, these Sugar Crystals are the best sprinkles on the market. They are so thick and crunchy and I am obsessed with them. There is really nothing else like them!

POV: My mental state at the moment.

Feeling a lootttt like a snowman trying to survive a winter in Southern CA. And it's not going very well. ⛄️

(If you want to see how well you are holding up, check out the list in my "OOTO" highlights" and see how many resonate).

I have talked to a lot of people in the last few weeks and it seems everyone is feeling off or unsettled or just freaking exhausted this winter. So I if you are feeling this way too, I want you to know that you are not alone.

For me, I have decided to take a little break. No social media or emails or working on lesson plans or budgets until January 2022. Because I just have nothing left.

So I hope everyone has a good end of their year (and I hope you spend it making ALL THE COOKIES).

Love and Sprinkles ❤️
