These St. Patrick’s Day Lucky Charms Cupcakes feature a delicious vanilla butter cupcake with a green swirl and topped with whipped buttercream and your favourite Lucky Charms marshmallows!
I was that child. Sweet and adorable of course, but I had to have my name brand kid snacks. I mean how else could I survive??
This included all the different types of Lunchables, and other assortment of meals that may have no meaning to me today, but certainly played a daily role in my life as a child.
My cereal was a big part of that. I was a big fan of what I now realise is everything General Mills; Frosted Flakes, Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms, you name it.
Although I’m a lot more receptive to homemade meals now, somehow this name brand has unfortunately translated into shopping…
I guess we never change.
With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, it’s hard not to reminisce on our first childhood encounter with all things kid-rated Irish and St. Patrick’s Day themed. I remember how excited I was to get the four leaf clover hat marshmallows, those specifically, and I think I can blame my love of all things green on this.
Although we have way more St. Patrick’s Day themed goodies such as bailey’s cheesecakes and anything with well, Guinness, I wanted to go back to childhood to pluck out a cute and fun idea for cupcakes, and something non-alcoholic!
There’s no reason that kids can’t get in on the fun! I had way too much fun riffling through the bag to get these for the cupcakes. All you really need is a bag of Lucky Charms cereal and these delicious cupcakes. These cupcakes are my go-to recipe, a combination of perfectly fluffy and light, but able to hold the delicious butter flavour that cupcakes should. I made some of the batter green and swirled it into the cupcakes, but you could also just make the entire batter green. It’s up to you. The frosting is also my go-to frosting and is so fluffy! The marshmallows on top were such a treat of course, and who wouldn’t feel lucky after eating a four leaf clover ?
Or four, four leaf clovers. Don’t worry, I won’t judge how many cupcakes you need to eat to feel lucky.
Just join the club.
You can add more of less milk based on how thick you want your frosting. Add up to 1 tablespoon more than the recommended amount.
These cupcakes store in the fridge well but it would also be advised to put them in a seal proof container first.
