Lucky Charms Trail Mix

Lucky Charms Trail Mix Recipe


St. Patrick’s Day will soon be here and I love to come up with fun and easy treats for the holidays. Treats that don’t take alot of time to make, easy on the wallet,  and are simple to assemble in a treat bag for those classroom parties! Those are the kinds I like!

Here’s a fun variation of your typical trail mix. You can make this Lucky Charms Trail Mix to have around at home for quick snacks or pack in pretty cellophane bags for your kids St. Patty day parties at school. If you’re making this for classroom treats, make sure to ask the teacher if any kiddos have any sort of allergies. Peanut allergies are very dangerous so it’s always a good idea to find out. If so, make some extra treat bags so they don’t feel left out.

This is super fun to make with the kiddos, if you can keep them from eating while you’re making it! HA!! Simply throw together some cereal, peanuts, M&M’s, pretzels, and raisins if you like. We didn’t use raisins in ours though.

This looks easy! I’m thinking even I could handle this recipe. Thanks!


Robin (Masshole Mommy) February 27, 2014 at 4:12 pm

We aren’t allowed to bring food into school here, but my kids would devour it before it ever made it out of the house anyways ;)


Kim Delatorre (@shopwithmemama) February 27, 2014 at 7:41 pm

Ohhh! I could make this easily! Thanks for the idea and recipe!


Rachael February 27, 2014 at 9:02 pm

I used to eat Lucky Charms cereal. Doing the grain free thing these days, though. But it looks really tasty.


Jaime February 27, 2014 at 9:13 pm

This is a great St. Patrick’s Day treat! I may leave the nuts out just in case one of the kids can’t have them, but I think they’d love this.


Mandy@ February 27, 2014 at 10:20 pm

Who doesn’t love trail mix?! This would be a simple and fun treat to take for a school party or playgroup.


Alesha @ Full Time Mama February 28, 2014 at 12:22 am

Yum! What a fun St Patrick’s Day treat! I’d love the addition of raisins in mine.


Shell Feis February 28, 2014 at 4:07 am

Cute! I need to make this for my little guy for St. Patrick’s.


Susanna Barbee (Zealous Mom) February 28, 2014 at 6:07 am

Yay! This is perfect. I’m helping with my little boy’s preschool St. Patty’s Day party. This snack is the exact thing we’ve been looking for. Something kind of salty and fun to go along with the cupcakes.


Toni February 28, 2014 at 7:08 am

What a fun way to get kids to eat trail mix. Add their favorite cereal and it becomes awesome :)


Tracey February 28, 2014 at 8:44 am

Neat idea for trial mix! Thanks for sharing!


Sue February 28, 2014 at 9:24 am

Looks yummy! If these were made for me, I would probably pick out the marshmallows and eat them first, like I did when I was a kid. LOL


Amy Desrosiers February 28, 2014 at 9:42 am

This is a great snack idea! My kids would pick out all the yummy parts first!


Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell February 28, 2014 at 9:58 am

I would happily munch on that while working. What a great and fun afternoon pick-me-up.


Rachee February 28, 2014 at 12:49 pm

Such a cute idea! I think this would be fun to share during a St. Patrick’s Day program for kids.


Alissa February 28, 2014 at 12:53 pm

Oh, those marshmallows. They really ARE magically delicious! This looks like a fun treat… especially for St. Patrick’s Day!


Cassie @ Southeast by Midwest February 28, 2014 at 1:47 pm

Lucky charms trail mix sounds like a such a great idea. It’s a bit healthy with a bit unhealthy. And those marshmallows make a nice little difference.


Amanda Her February 28, 2014 at 2:18 pm

This is great! We just made something similar for my son using Lucky Charms and other finger foods we had on hand. He loved it!


Angie | Big Bear's Wife February 28, 2014 at 4:32 pm

I almost bought a box of Lucky Charms last night and now I’m kicking myself for not getting them! Love this!


Janel February 28, 2014 at 5:17 pm

My kids eat dry cereal all the time for snacks! They love it. This would be a cute themed st. patty’s snack, though.


Ashley M February 28, 2014 at 5:26 pm

My daughter would love this. She eats dry cereal as a snack almost every day.


katherine February 28, 2014 at 5:57 pm

That is a great idea! My daughter would love it!


Eliz Frank February 28, 2014 at 6:01 pm

This is a great idea for a trail mix… I’ve had all kinds but not lucky charms. Neat.


Jenn February 28, 2014 at 6:54 pm

What a fun snack! I love Lucky Charms in any way, shape or form!


Aimee February 28, 2014 at 7:37 pm

Great recipe! My toddlers would love this! I will have to make some asap.


April February 28, 2014 at 9:07 pm

This looks like something my kids would love! Thanks for the recipe!


Krystal February 28, 2014 at 9:58 pm

This is a super cute idea for March 17th! I’m thinking I would make it for my coworkers!


Liza @ Views From the 'Ville March 1, 2014 at 1:33 pm

Kecia March 2, 2014 at 3:16 pm

I love trail mixes! They are so easy to put together and you can customize them however you want. My son loves the “Marshmallow Cereal” so we may have to do this as a special treat for St. Patty’s Day!


April @ The Steadfast Reader March 2, 2014 at 6:19 pm

So this looks like an easy and delicious snack!
