Homemade Lucky Charms!

Homemade Lucky Charms!

21st January 2013 Recipes 1

There are many of us who can not have Lucky charms because they are not halal/kosher/vegetarian. I have desperately wanted these as a child and would often read the ingredients over and over again in the vain hope that perhaps one day I shall see a ‘suitable for vegetarian’ sign or kosher gelatin on the box. But this never did happen… then a few days ago I stumbled upon BraveTarts blog. She had her own recipe on how to make these! I was so excited to find this recipe and was eager to try it. You can substitute the gelatin with halal/kosher gelatin. Be warned the smell of gelatin is awful!

Although the idea of making my own lucky charms was at first very exciting, as I progressed through the recipe, I grew incredibly weary and by the end just wanted to be done with them!

I liked how Stef from Cupcake Project had used the cutters to make her marshmallow cereal and thought I would try too…. but this was even slower and difficult with a toddler running around and would probably have been wiser to just cut squares out instead!

Anyway to anyone who would like to try these the recipe can be found on BraveTart’s Crispy Cereal Marshmallows post. I followed all of BraveTarts instructions word-for-word. Good luck! 🙂

The cutters I used are from amazon: Mini Metal Cookie cutters

Here are some pics of the process!
