The best way to Make Fortunate Charms Treats + a Few Success Suggestions

After I’m making any sort of cereal deal with bars, I all the time use extra butter (and fewer cereal) than your typical recipe. The marshmallows are what harden and switch your treats to rocks the subsequent day, so that you wish to butter them up as a lot as you may. Soften the 2 collectively on the range over low warmth and consistently stir. You need the combination to be very buttery. It can make your bars so gooey and filled with these superb stretchy marshmallow strings.

As soon as the marshmallows are melted with the butter, take away from warmth, pour the Fortunate Charms in and stir all of it collectively, ensuring to take action gently—you don’t wish to break the cereal.

After the cereal is totally coated, switch the sticky combination to a lined 9-inch sq. pan.

To stop sticking, line your pan with greased parchment paper. I line the pan first, then evenly spray the parchment paper with a bit of nonstick spray.

Don’t press the treats into the pan with pressure. That’s what creates a tough cereal deal with! As a substitute, you wish to mould them into the pan’s form by very, very gently urgent down with a spatula. I spray the bottom of my spatula with nonstick spray for ease.

Enable the treats to set for about 2 hours at room temperature earlier than reducing. (Refrigerating them would make them rock laborious.) As soon as they’ve set, carry the bars out of the pan utilizing the sides of the parchment paper. Reduce into bars, then dip right into a pot of gold—er, I imply, melted white chocolate.

The cereal bars aren’t as mushy as my rice krispie treats, as a result of Fortunate Charms is a a lot crunchier cereal.

The Greatest White Chocolate for Melting

The very best white chocolate for melting are the bars of “baking chocolate” discovered within the baking aisle close to the chocolate chips. I like Baker’s and Ghirardelli manufacturers, which are available 4-ounce bars. You want 8 ounces of white chocolate for this recipe, so that you’ll use 2 bars. You might additionally use almond bark, which isn’t chocolate, however an easy-to-melt candy sweet coating.

Don’t use white chocolate morsels or sweet melts right here—get the real-deal bars of white chocolate.

Melting white chocolate is straightforward: Begin by chopping up the white chocolate and putting it in a microwave-safe bowl. (I often use a glass liquid measuring cup.) Microwave it in 20-second increments, stopping and stirring after every increment. You might additionally use a double boiler in case you have one.

After reducing the bars into squares, dip the bottoms in white chocolate and place the Fortunate Charms treats the other way up on a lined baking sheet (so that you don’t mess up the moist chocolate). Allow them to set at room temperature or within the fridge, you then’re executed!
