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.

 

Lucky Charms Trail Mix

Ingredients

  • 1 box Lucky Charms Cereal
  • 1 box Chex Cereal
  • 1 jar or canister of Planters Peanuts
  • 1 bag of M&M's
  • 1 bag of Pretzels
  • Raisins *optional

Instructions

  1. Pour all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix well.
  2. Add 1-2 cups to treat bags or ziploc bags if you're handing out to students or store in an airtight container to keep at home.

Notes

Variations:

I made this up for us to have at home. Instead of buying Chex cereal and pretzels individually, I just bought a bag of Original Chex Mix. If you're planning to give to classmates as treats, you'll probably get more for your money buying the cereal and pretzels separately.

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 ;)

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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!
