created at: 03/20/2012

Nobody doesn’t like Lucky Charms. I mean, some of us might opt not to indulge in them as of late, but c’mon…you love them. They’re freaking magically delicious! How can you not?

And, of course, the best part of Lucky Charms is the marshmallows…those seemlikethey’dbetoofirmbutarejustright perfectly bitable contrast to the oats, which are basically there only to play a supporting role and to line your stomach with something other than sugar so you can eat more marshmallows.

You can actually buy the marshmallows in bulk, so you can add them to your Grape Nuts and Bran Flakes and other grownup cereals, as well as to ice cream and chicken legs and peanut butter sandwiches and spaghetti and cocktails. Or! You can make your own, with higher quality ingredients, much less expensive, and a whole lot more fun.

It’s a bit of work, but its a “culinary Mount Everest” and it’s worth checking out, if only just to see how it’s done.
