How to Make Lucky Charms Cookies

Can I Just Buy the Marshmallow By Themselves?
Yes and no. 🙂
You can buy a bag of cereal marshmallows off of Amazon (affiliate link) and I would highly recommend doing that. But if you want to have the actual Lucky Charms shapes and prints, then just go ahead and get a bit because it will take you a while to separate out from the cereal....only speaking from experience. 😉
But either way works. You choose!
How to Freeze Baked Cookies
Once the cookies are cooled completely. Place in a freezer-safe zip-top bag, container, or vacuum seal.
Place in the freezer for 3 months (or a year if vacuum-sealed).
Once ready to eat, remove from the freezer and enjoy cold, or let come to room temp for a couple of hours on a platter then enjoy!
How to Freeze Cookie Dough
Make the entire batch of cookies and scoop them out into balls on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 20 minutes until the cookie dough balls are firm, and transfer them to a freezer-safe zip-top bag or vacuum seal*. Keep for up to 4 months or a year if vacuum sealed.
To bake, bake at 350 for 12-13 minutes straight from the freezer. Bake as many or as few as you want and always have fresh cookie dough on hand!
