Perfect for kids and adults alike, this No-Bake Lucky Charms Marshmallow Cheesecake is a real winner! A Lucky Charms crust filled with a lusciously light & creamy marshmallow cheesecake. Great for St. Patty’s Day!
So. Online dating.
It is still the worst.
“Try Tinder,” my friends said. “You’ll love it,” they said. “I’ve met so many cool people on there,” they said.
And who do I get? Hunters, shirtless dudes, and pictures of things you don’t want to know about.
Seriously? Why can’t I get matched with normal people? Are there still semi-normal people in this world? I don’t mean that they can’t be weird in some way, but can we cut it out with the pictures of dudes holding up animals they just killed? #umno
And there are SO many “couples” looking for “play mates” that I just may become a nun. Only half-joking. Mostly serious.
And don’t tell me “that’s just Tinder! Try somewhere else!” HONEY. Do you think I haven’t tried Match, Plenty of Fish, Bumble, OkCupid and eHarmony? I’ve tried them all except for Farmers Only, but I can’t even keep a plant alive and I don’t think fishing is fun so I’m pretty sure I don’t meet their qualifications.
IT’S CRAZY. CRAZINESS EVERYWHERE.
So congratulations if you met your sweetie on a dating site. I truly am happy for you! But your sweetie was literally the only viable option and the rest are lunatics in disguise. At least they make for great stories?
ANYWAY, I have been swiping until my fingers feel numb and no such luck. So it’s back to the drawing board, which means spending my time wisely by eating this No-Bake Lucky Charms Marshmallow Cheesecake. Folks, it’s a divine one! Smooth, creamy, with that gooey, crunchy Lucky Charms crust… HEAVEN!
And no, I will NOT stop making cereal-crusted cheesecakes. Not unless you tell me to stop. (Pretty please don’t tell me to stop).
If you have kidlets, this would be super fun to make with them! Have them mix together the gooey marshmallows and cereal, or delegate them to pressing the cereal mixture into the pan. They can even sprinkle the cereal marshmallows on top of the finishing product… assuming you don’t eat all of those marshmallows!
This recipe does use a bag of cereal marshmallows which I found online at Amazon. If you don’t want to order an entire bag of cereal marshmallows (which… for many reasons, I understand), feel free to sprinkle on extra Lucky Charms cereal OR isolate the marshmallows from the Lucky Charms cereal to sprinkle on top!
Now who wants to dive right in?
