Lucky Charm Cookies

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup Lucky Charm cereal pieces (not the mallows)
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (225 grams)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract (optional, but I like the flavor)
1 large egg
3/4 cup Lucky Charm marshmallows
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a 9-inch round pan with cooking spray.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; whisk in 1/4 cup sugar until combined.  Bring mixture to a boil, until sugar is dissolved.  Stir in cereal pieces until combined.  Place in prepared pan.  Bake 5 minutes, stir, and bake an additional 5 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.

In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  In a large bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter, sugar, vanilla, and almond extract until creamy - about 1 minute.  Beat in egg until combined.  Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined.  Stir in candied cereal pieces, marshmallows and chocolate chips until just combined.

Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto cookie sheets, spacing about an inch apart.  Bake 10-13 minutes, or until slightly crisp and starting to turn golden around the edges.  Cool 1 minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.

Makes about 12 big cookies

  1. Lucky Charms is one of my favorite "dessert" cereals. The local Amish store sells bags of just the marshmallows (I'm sure not from the same brand). They're my favorite part! I don't mind that these cookies are green.

    1. OH my gosh I know just what you're talking about! I remember seeing those mallows at the store in Branson. Do you snack on them? Or eat them like cereal?

  5. I love Lucky Charms - they remind me of being a kid again. These cookies are such a great idea! And so perfect for St. Patrick's Day! By the way, your big box should last a couple months open. I find they hold up well.
