Just in time for Saint Patrick’s Day, we’re so excited to share this Lucky Charms ice cream recipe! I will fully admit, when I was a kid I would make an all-marshmallow cereal by picking out the colorful, crunchy marshmallows from the Lucky Charms box and boy, was it good! So when I got a text message showing me a Lucky Charms-flavored ice cream, there was no doubt I was creating my own version! I put my 4 year old to work, sorting out the marshmallows from the frosted oats. I was a proud mama when I noticed he refrained from eating them all and actually followed my instructions! I honestly thought they would all end up in his belly!
I went to my trusted ice cream base (we’ve used it here and here), that was adapted from Jeni’s and altered it to make one “magically delicious” (sorry, I had to!) Lucky Charms ice cream that actually tastes like the cereal, but even better!! The marshmallows do soften, but they keep their yummy flavor and make beautifully colorful swirls in the ice cream. It’s truly my absolute favorite ice cream recipe base! No eggs, which I love and very easy to make.
In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day, we decided to make mini ice cream cones for the little leprechauns that will be partaking in this fun dessert. How cute are those?! We picked them up at our grocery store!
We scooped mini cones and everyone loved this frozen Lucky Charms treat! This ice cream is very creamy (the secret ingredient is cream cheese!!) and delicious, and perfect for celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day or great to make with kids too. Enjoy and stay sweet!
