Why We're Fat Volume 12

Well, the good folks over at The Kitchn have come up with this...

Lucky Charms® Cereal Ice Cream Sandwiches!!


  • 3 tablespoons Butter 
  • 1 package (10 ounces) Mini Marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 4 cups Lucky Charms® cereal
  • 1 pint French Vanilla Ice Cream 
Heat butter, marshmallows, vanilla, and salt in a large pot set over medium heat. Cook down until melted, about 5 minutes, stirring continuously with a heat-proof spatula. Turn off the heat and pour in the Lucky Charms cereal, and stir with a spatula until evenly coated with marshmallow mixture. The consistency will be very thick and slightly difficult to stir.

Scoop out the Lucky Charm/marshmallow mixture onto a lipped baking pan and press down into the pan, flattening as much as possible. Your hands will be very sticky, but keep pressing down hard to create an even plain of Lucky Charms.

Allow to set/rest for about 5 minutes then cut out circular shapes using a cookie cutter. You can store the "cookies" in a sealed container for a few days at this point.

To serve, smear about 1/4 to 1/3 cup ice cream between two Lucky Charm cookies, creating a sandwich.

Makes 8 to 12 sandwiches, depending on size.
