Make: St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes {Lucky Charms}

A fun DIY cupcake celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and Lucky Charms cereal. Perfection.

St Patrick's Day cupcakes-001

Growing up, Lucky Charms was one of my favorite cereals. It still is, actually, and although I don’t eat it nearly as often as I used to, I have been known to sneak a marshmallow or three from the kids’ bowls when I’m pouring it.

Old habits die hard.

When I saw that Lucky Charms had a special all green, more marshmallows in every spoon edition, well, I got just a little excited.

As I’m sure you understand.

And, hey, Happy 50th Birthday to Lucky Charms!

But this time, the excitement involved a little out of the box thinking.

Or, more to the point, out of the bowl thinking.

As in, how else can we enjoy this magically delicious cereal besides just straight up with milk?

Well, I’m glad you asked!

How about as a fun cupcake topper?

I know! Perfect, right?

Using one of my favorite go-to cupcake recipes, and, of course, my favorite call-off-the-dogs buttercream frosting, this is pretty much the perfect way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

And, really, the perfect way to celebrate all things Lucky Charms.

And who doesn’t want more of that?

They’ll be hitting our dessert table (along with the requisite corned beef and cabbage), and the rest are going to be delivered to some of our favorite friends and neighbors.

Mostly because I can’t be trusted with so many of my favorite things in one tasty, delicious bite.


Hungry for more ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?
These cereal necklaces were a fun quick craft with the kids.
These Triple Layer Fudgy Mint Oreo Brownies are another delicious way to enjoy the holiday – we totally need to make them again.
This is my go-to recipe for Corned Beef and Cabbage.
And, although I can’t have it this year, I love this Colcannon. I mean, really, you can’t go wrong with melted pools of butter and crispy bacon.
Our favorite brown bread recipe from a local Irish pub can be found here.
Mint M&M Brownies that are simple to make, ultra fudgy, and have just the right amount of green.

So fun! I love lucky charms (to this day), though I haven’t bought them in years! Using them as cupcake decoration sounds perfect to me!
