Cereal Cookies

Written by Tad. Posted in Cookies

I made these cookies with Lucky Charms left over after Christmas. Our son-in-law, Austin, loves them and we bought them for him for a Christmas treat. I think they are disgusting.  I can’t even imagine putting them in a bowl, pouring milk over them and eating them. But they were fun in the cookies.

Here is a nice round ball scooped out with a cookie scoop and a tasty red “marshmallow” showing.



Here one is flattened. The recipe calls for using a fork but I just flattened them with my fingers.


Here is a cooked one showing all of the wonderful, artificial colors that make Lucky Charms so magically delicious!
