Recipe: St. Patrick's Day Treats

In anticipation of St. Patrick's Day coming up on Sunday, I made some festive treats this week: Lucky Charms treats and GREEN chocolate chip cookies!

Lucky Charms Treats:

Ingredients:
-5 cups Lucky Charms cereal
-5 cups mini marshmallows (approximately one bag)
-4 tablespoons butter

Directions:
-Grease an 8x8 baking pan.
-Pour Lucky Charms in a large bowl and set aside.
-Melt butter on the stovetop on medium low heat. After butter has melted add in marshmallows and continue melting, stirring constantly. 
-Once marshmallows have melted remove the mixture from the stove and pour onto the cereal. Using a spatula, stir cereal until evenly coated, then transfer to greased pan. Use spatula to evenly distribute towards edges of the pan and flatten.
-Let cool for at least 15 minutes then cut into squares.
Yum!

Green Chocolate Chip Cookies:

I simply followed the classic Nestle Toll House recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag. Except for this batch I actually used Ghiradelli chips since they are richer. Before adding chocolate chips into the dough, add green food coloring a few drops at a time until desired color is reached. Keep in mind that it will lighten some during baking.
Green dough!

Finished product!
