I made mine today with Lucky Charms to make them cute for St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, but most any kind of cereal would work. Just imagine how bright and fun Trix cookies would be. Or how delicious Apple Jacks cookies would taste. Fruit Loops, Cocoa Puffs, Cinnamon Toast Crunch -- the options are endless! Just follow the same basic recipe, substituting your favorite cereal.
Lucky Charms Cookies
1 pouch sugar cookie mix
½ C. butter, softened
3 C. Lucky Charms, including the crumbly, powdery stuff at the bottom of the box
Preheat oven to 350º. In a mixer, beat sugar cookie mix with butter and egg until well combined. Gently stir in Lucky Charms cereal, being careful not to break up the marshmallow pieces too much. Spoon onto cookie sheets about 2 Tablespoons at a time to form cookies. Bake 8-10 minutes, until golden brown. Allow to cool and serve with a glass of cold milk.
My kids loved having their favorite cereal in cookies and milk form. I loved them because they were so stinkin' cute with their bright marshmallow pieces. OK, they were pretty delicious as well. Wouldn't this be a fun breakfast surprise next Monday morning for St. Patty's Day? Or for your next school bake sale? Give them a try and let me know what you think!
