If you are a big fan of Lucky Charms Cereal, you’ll love these because we put real cereal right inside the cookie.

Ingredients:

  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Egg
  • mint extract
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
  • Cream of Tartar
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Lucky Charms

Is peppermint extract the same as mint extract?

Nope! You’ll want to stick with mint extract for these cookies (and any recipe with that true mint flavor.) Mint extract is a mixture of spearmint and peppermint and peppermint is just, well, peppermint.

Is gel food coloring better than liquid?

One isn’t necessarily better than the other, but gel coloring is slightly more concentrated so you have to use less. If you use liquid you may just need to use a few extra drops.

How To Make Lucky Charms Cookies from Scratch

First, mix together the butter and sugar until it’s nice and creamy.

Next, add in the food coloring, mint extract and the egg.

When that is all stirred together you can add all of your dry ingredients.

Lastly, gently fold in the cereal and chocolate chips.

Roll the dough into small round balls and place onto a cookie sheet to bake for about 10 minutes. You’ll have to check on them and adjust the time depending on how big you make them.

Take these as a special school treat this year. Maybe leave these cookies out with your Leprechaun trap. You know how much Leprechauns love Lucky Charms!

    love these cookies. we made them a few times. we tried them as well with vanilla instead of mint and skipped the food colouring because I didn’t have any. my son suggested we put the lucky charms in cereal and all. it really added a nice crunch to the cookies. Definitely will make these often!!

    I made these for my son’s St. Patty’s day school party! These were super simple to make. I omitted the green food coloring and kept them vanilla; I wasn’t sure how toddlers would do with the flavor mint. I also baked them for about 13 minutes. I added more marshmallows after they were done baking, too. I’ll report back on how much the kiddos (and adults!) liked them!
