Looking for a very quick and easy St. Patrick's Day treat? I got you! This dessert has four ingredients - two of which are special ingredients that take these to the next level! Think thick, marshmallow-y krispy cereal bar treats but switch them with Marshmallows and Stars (Aldi's dye-free version of Lucky Charms) and you've got an amazing, festive treat that's ready in twenty minutes tops! 👌


If you're looking for a quick, easy St. Paddy's Day treat, look no further:
This treat has four ingredients with two that it to a whole other level: condensed milk and browned butter!


  • 9 cups of Millville Marshmallows and Stars cereal
  • 1 bag (10 ounces) of mini marshmallows 
  • 12 tablespoons (3/4 cup) of melted butter
  • 1/2 cup of condensed milk
  • optional: vanilla
  • optional: sea salt


  1. Lightly spray or butter up a 9x13 pan.
  2. Pop your butter into a large pot and melt over medium heat. To brown your butter, let it start to bubble and "foam". Your butter should pretty quickly darken to a nice, brown color. It's not burnt, I promise. Browning the butter gives this treat a nice flavor that some describe as "nutty" but personally, I think it just tastes like toasted butter. Okay. Yeah. That was an even more terrible analogy. Just try it.
  3. Pour your mini marshmallows into the melted brown butter and stir until the marshmallows have melted.
  4. Add your 1/2 cup of condensed milk into the butter/marshmallow mixture. At first, it's going to look like it's separating but try using a whisk to get them to mix together easier. Optional: mix in your vanilla and/or salt (personally, I measure with my heart for these).
  5. Once combined, turn off the heat and mix in your cereal. Make sure that everything is well mixed and that all the cereal is covered.
  6. Pour your marshmallow cereal mixture into your buttered pan and gently press into it to create an even surface. Don't over press. You can use a greased spatula or a piece of parchment paper to press everything down.
  7. Allow the treats to settle for about an hour. 
  8. Enjoy!
