Lucky Charms Pudding Cookies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We don’t generally eat sugary cereal in our house, but we do buy an occasional box of Lucky Charms. My husband ate a few bowls of it for breakfast over his Easter break from teaching. My daughter had two small bowls of it herself. (Believe it or not, she actually prefers wheat bran to the sweeter cereal varieties)! Now that Jeff is back at school working, I am left with half a box of Lucky Charms in my cupboard which will inevitably go stale. That is, of course, until I make these fabulously textured and ridiculously sweet pudding cookies again. Yes, that’s right: I put Lucky Charms in my pudding cookie recipe and they turned out awesomely. The oat cereal pieces stayed crunchy, even inside the baked cookie dough. The marshmallows melted away to oblivion, magically leaving behind little air pockets with a shield of pastel sweetness. I would highly recommend trying out these cookies, Lucky Charms fan or not. 🙂
