While Lucky Charm bars are the ultimate snack or dessert all year, they’re especially fun and festive to serve for St. Patrick’s Day! You can serve them in bar form or cut them into shamrocks, gold pots, rainbows and more!

They’re completely amazing as-is, or you can dip them in white or green chocolate! These treats are gluten-free, too, making them suitable for a crowd.

Just like rice krispy treats, they come together quickly and easily. It takes less than 10 minutes to whip up a delicious batch. Even better, you don’t have to wait because they’re no-bake!

Ingredients and Substitutions
