I love how nostalgic Lucky Charms are, so it’s only fitting to enjoy them whenever possible. This recipe only calls for the Lucky Charms marshmallows- which, let’s be honest, is the best part! Between the colorful marshmallows and the bright sprinkles, this chocolate bark is perfect for any occasion that calls for a bit of magic!

The Magic Ingredients

  • White Chocolate – Make sure to use REAL white chocolate, like Ghiradelli or Lindt, and not candy melts, which are not real chocolate.
  • Lucky Charms Marshmallows – The BEST part of this recipe! I choose only to use the marshmallows, but you can add the cereal bits in if you’d like.
  • Assorted Sprinkles – Get festive with it! I like to use assorted colors, but you can choose to use green or gold to be extra festive.
  • Food Coloring – Feel free to use whatever color you’d like or skip the food coloring completely.

How To Make Lucky Charms Bark

  1. Break apart the white chocolate and place it in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until fully melted.
  2. Separate 2-3 tablespoons of the white chocolate into two bowls. Add one drop of different food coloring in each bowl to create pink and yellow chocolate. Stir with different spoons to not combine the two colors.
  3. Pour the uncolored chocolate onto a 11×7 baking sheet with parchment paper, and spread it out across the pan using an icing spatula or the back side of a spoon.
  4. Drop small spoonfulls of the colored chocolate, alternating between colors, across the white chocolate. Swirl the colors into the white chocolate with a skewer or toothpick. Before the chocolate hardens,
  5. Sprinkle the marshmallows on top of the chocolate, followed by the sprinkles.
  6. Allow the bark to rest at room temperature for 30-45 minutes until the chocolate is fully hardened, or in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
  7. Cut the bars with a sharp knife for a neat look, or break apart the bark with your hands for a fun appearance.

Do I Have To Use Food Coloring?

Not at all! The extra colors just give the bark some extra colors and will not change the outcome of the taste or texture of the bark.

Can I Use A Double Boiler Instead Of The Microwave?

Yes! Place a heat-safe bowl over a pot of simmering water on medium-low heat, but make sure the bottom of the bowl isn’t touching the water directly. Place the chocolate in the bowl and stir until fully melted.

Can I Make The Bark Thicker?

Yes, to make the bark thicker, you’ll want to add more chocolate. I suggest adding 4 additional ounces.

  • ¾ cup Lucky Charms marshmallows
  • Assorted sprinkles
  • Gel food coloring: pink and yellow


  • Line an 11×7 baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Place the broken up white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and melt on a low setting, stirring every 30 seconds, until smooth. You can alternatively use a double boiler to melt it instead.
  • Separate 2-3 tablespoons each of the melted white chocolate into two separate small bowls and add 1 drop of different food coloring in each. Stir it together with separate spoons.
  • Pour the uncolored melted white chocolate on the prepared baking sheet and spread it out with an icing spatula or back of a spoon.

  • Before it hardens, add the Lucky Charms marshmallows on top, followed by sprinkles.
  • Let the bark set at room temperature for 30-45 minutes until the chocolate has fully hardened. You can also place it in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes to help it set quicker.
  • Once it has hardened, use a knife to cut it into neat bars or you can break it apart with your hands.


For thicker bars, add an extra 4oz bar of premium white chocolate.
Use high quality white chocolate for this recipe such as Ghirardelli or Lindt. I do not recommend candy melts, which are not real chocolate.
This recipe only uses the marshmallow part of Lucky Charms cereal but you can add some of the cereal pieces too if you don’t want to pick out the marshmallows.
The food coloring is optional and just adds a fun pop of color.
STORING: Store leftovers on the counter in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Keep in mind, the refrigeration may make the marshmallows a little stale.
