Whether you are looking for an after school snack or a sweet treat for a family occasion, Lucky Charms cereal is usually a great bet for gaining approval from kids and adults alike. This iconic cereal has been used for treats for decades, but these blondie bars take the sweet taste of Lucky Charms to even more delicious heights.
· To make thirty bars, you will need;
· 200 grams of white chocolate chips
· 100 grams of unsalted butter
· 200 grams of flour
· 100 grams of brown sugar
· Two teaspoons baking powder
· One teaspoon vanilla extract
· Pinch of salt
· Two eggs
· 150 grams of Lucky Charms cereal with marshmallow pieces.
Over a low heat, melt your butter in a medium sized saucepan. When the butter has melted scatter half the chocolate chips into the pan, but do not stir. Allow the pan to sit off the heat for two minutes so that the chocolate melts gently. After this time give the mixture a gentle stir, so it is combined. Allow this mixture to cool, as you will need it only to be lukewarm.
Sift together the baking powder, salt, and flour. Add in the sugar and whisk to combine. Beat in the eggs, vanilla and cooled butter mixture. Fold in the remaining chocolate chips and Lucky Charms cereal. Perth sweet enthusiasts may be tempted to add in more marshmallows, but if you prefer a more marshmallowy treat, adjust the cereal to marshmallow ratio rather than adding more ingredients. This recipe can also be made with just the Lucky Charms marshmallows, but keep the weight the same.
Spread the blondie batter into a greased cake tin and bake at 175ºc for approximately twenty minutes. The blondies should be golden brown and cooked through. Allow your Lucky Charms blondies to cool in the tin completely before slicing.
While these Lucky Charms blondies look wonderfully colourful without decoration, if you do want to make them look a little more special, it is possible with very little effort. Traditionally, blondies are decorated with a little melted chocolate. White or milk chocolate would work well as a chocolate drizzle decoration.
However, if you want to keep the Lucky Charm theme, you could also decorate with a marshmallow drizzle. To safely melt your marshmallows, set a heatproof bowl over a pan of hot water. Place the marshmallows into the bowl with a tablespoon of water and allow them to be gently heated. Warning, if you use multiple colours of marshmallows, you will end up with a tasty, yet brown marshmallow decoration. Instead, pick out your favourite colour as a decoration. Alternatively, you could simply use regular white marshmallows, which will melt down in the same way. Drizzle the melted marshmallow in the same way as chocolate, taking care not to burn or splash yourself. Allow the marshmallow to set before serving.
