It’s hard to believe that summer is almost here, but we are literally in the last weeks of school and all I have to do is step outside into the 90 degree weather to know that it’s time to bring on the summer fun. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m “that mom” that celebrates every summer moment, from the first day of summer, to the first trip to the pool, to the first time running through the sprinkler. And this year, I’m making every special summer moment more delicious with Lucky Charms™ Treat Bars from Walmart. With a delicious crunch that tastes just like the cereal but is easy to grab and go, these Lucky Charms™ Treat Bars are a staple in my beach and pool bag. But perhaps more importantly, they are the base for my crazy delicious, totally fun (and did I mention oh-so easy?) summer treat creation of Lucky Charms™ Treat Bar Ice Cream Sandwiches!
Before I show you how to make these Lucky Charms™ Treat Bar Ice Cream Sandwiches that are the perfect summer snack, let me share with you a little more about where I found Lucky Charms™ Treat Bars and why they are such a fun addition to any number of summer activities. Both of my boys are big cereal eaters, and Lucky Charms just happens to be their cereal of choice. Those marshmallows inside get them every time! So when I was recently cruising down the cereal aisle at Walmart (click here to find Lucky Charms™ Treat Bars at a Walmart near you) and saw their favorite cereal made into a fun treat bar, it didn’t take me long to put multiple boxes into my cart. Knowing that my guys would adore these fun treat bars that taste like the classic cereal but are perfect for when we’re on the go or when we’re at home, I stocked up and arrived home armed with what I was sure would be a favorite summer treat.
While I’ll admit that my first thought for the Lucky Charms™ Treat Bars was that they would be perfect for throwing in our beach or pool bag or taking to the park, after my kiddos tried them out and declared them to be totally delicious and totally fun, my mom brain kicked in. I knew that the perfect way to celebrate summer would be to take these already amazing bars, pair them with ice cream, and roll them in Lucky Charms cereal for a cool, crunchy summer treat that is based on their favorite summer cereal brand. Here’s how I made them.
- 4 Lucky Charms™ Treat Bars
- 4 scoops of Great Value Vanilla Ice Cream
- 1 cup of Lucky Charms Cereal
- Using a sharp knife, cut each of the Lucky Charms™ Treat Bars in half.
- Add one scoop of ice cream to four of the cereal bar halves and smooth it out.
- Add the top half of the cereal bars and squeeze together.
- Roll the ice cream sandwiches in Lucky Charms™ Cereal so that it sticks to the exposed ice cream.
Truthfully, these Lucky Charms™ Treat Bar Ice Cream Sandwiches are the easiest summer snack to make and they are so much fun! To start, I cut my Lucky Charms™ Treat Bars in half.
Next, I added a scoop of Great Value vanilla ice cream to one half of each bar and used a butter knife to smooth it out so that it covered the entire half bar.
As soon as my ice cream was in place, I put the top half of the bar on the ice cream and squished it together so that the ice cream came out a little on the sides. Just in case you can’t tell, by this point, my little helper was getting pretty excited about this easy summer treat idea!
Finally, we rolled our Lucky Charms™ Treat Bar Ice Cream Sandwiches in Lucky Charms Cereal (because you can never have too much Lucky Charms taste!) so that the pieces stuck to the exposed sides of the ice cream.
In just minutes, we had the perfect summer treat that pairs the delicious taste of Lucky Charms Cereal that my guys have always adored with creamy ice cream in a way that’s fun to eat and perfect for hot summer days.
It’s easy to see that this is a fun summer treat that my boys and I will be enjoying all summer long. And while they have tons of summer memories of waking up to a bowl of Lucky Charms cereal, I adore that they will now have memories of making all of summer’s special moments sweeter with Lucky Charms™ Treat Bar Ice Cream Sandwiches!
