Lucky Charms Treats

 

Lucky Charms Rice Crispy Treats

One of my favorite things about food is that it can instantly transport you to a different place or time. When I drink a tropical cocktail, I can close my eyes and nearly feel the Hawaiian sunshine – even on the most rainy day here in Portland. And then there’s Rice Crispy Treats smothered in Lucky Charms cereal. I don’t know about you, but these two treats were probably my two favorite things about childhood. So mashed together? It’s a magical blast from the past. And just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.

Oh – and did I mention I’m doing a St. Patrick’s Day race this year? It won’t be as intense as the half marathon, but it’s a 15K. Which is about 9 miles. Between you and me, it’s not the 9 miles that scares me. It’s the hills that are apparently super abundant on the course. Anyway, I know everyone will be drinking green beer after the race. But since that sorta weirds me out (remember? I told you this last year too!) and Guinness totally doesn’t do it for me, I’ll opt to stuff my face with these Lucky Charms treats instead.

I’m sure the leprechauns approve. Wherever they are.
