Green Lucky Charms Bars
These green Saint Patrick’s Day treats are one of my favorites for St Paddy’s Day parties for kids and adults because they’re yummy, but the green color of the krispie treats mixed with the colorful Lucky Charms marshmallows are really beautiful for a dessert table or St. Patrick’s Day snack board.

- Lucky Charms cereal
- Rice crispie cereal (optional, see recipe note)
- White marshmallows
- Pastel colored marshmallows
- Green food coloring

RECIPE TIP: We’ve made these with a mix of Lucky Charms cereal and Rice Krispies cereal and also with just Lucky Charms. They’re good both ways!

If your kids love a good laugh, definitely make some green leprechaun poop candies for the holiday. This was one of my daughter’s favorites for St. Patrick’s Day, not just because they look funny, but also because they’re really good!
(Plus, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to make these treats!)
These are also fun to make and pair with a leprechaun trap craft if you make those with your kids.

When my daughter was younger and we made these, she had so much fun. She thought it was great that she could add in the candy rainbow and then find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
This is a fun food activity for kids to pair with any St. Patrick’s Day children’s books that talk about finding the pot-o-gold at the end of a rainbow.
