In anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to make Lucky Charms Leprechaun Bait! Lucky Charms is the official cereal of St. Patrick’s Day right? I only just found out this year it was such a thing (don’t ask me how) and after hearing one of my friend’s made leprechaun traps for their kids, I couldn’t resist trying my hand at making my own delicious little treats.

It’s similar to rice crispy treats except so much better because it has the Lucky Charm’s marshmallows in it. This recipe is so cute and my girls loved it! I love creating new holiday traditions. We leave the bait out for the leprechaun on Saint Patty’s day. It’s similar to Santa’s cookies and makes for such sweet memories.

This recipe was inspired by a recipe I found on the Chex cereal website and I just made a few adjustments.
