Afterschool snacks tend to be healthy and on the small side so they don’t interfere with dinner. But there comes that moment when the kids are wanting something different than celery with peanut butter or a yogurt. That’s when the genius of Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats happens.Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats #recipe #kidsinthekitchen #cereal #sweettreats

I honestly think these are better than traditional Rice Krispie Treats. No more sweeter but with a different flavor because of the oat cereal. Shaun was my chef on hand this time. We got these done before Shae got home and tried to takeover. She’s bossy like that sometimes.Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats #recipe #kidsinthekitchen #cereal #sweettreats
