Cookies Are My Lucky Charm

Cookies Are My Lucky Charm

What’s your lucky charm? Do you even believe in lucky charms? Some people wear their socks inside out because they think they will play better and some people wear the same shoes on a certain day because they believe it will give them good luck.  There are athletes who listen to music and do a routine in a certain order believing that it is the magic to their game.  Then there is me. The fun sucker. You know the one who believes the closest thing I have owned that would be considered a lucky charm would be cereal.  Then my son reminded me that it would be his “lucky” day if there was a sugar cereal in the house.  In fact, this was my son’s reaction upon walking in the pantry, “What on earth, you bought a sugar cereal?”  “I thought we were detoxing?”  He totally believes the box of marshmallow goodness is taunting him while we are detoxing the sugar out of his system from his birthday sugar palooza. {Try to say that sentence 5 times fast}

When Melissa, from Simply Sweets by Honeybee asked me to be a part of this blog collaborative I was so excited. I am a huge fan of her blog and wanted to be a part of the collaborative.  I jumped in with both feet. But then it hit me about a week later, I have never had a lucky charm.  What on earth am I going to do?  Am I going to be the wet blanket of the group? Should I drop out? But I decided not to. Do you know how those “lucky”  little marshmallows came about?  I sure didn’t.  Did you know they represent stuff?

Cookies My Lucky Charm

Lucky Charms was created in 1962 by John Holahan. He came up with the idea when he decided to mix Cheerios with bits of Brach’s Circus Peanuts.  Originally the cereal was not sugar-coated and sales were low. Once they added sugar-coated oats the sales increased. Imagine that? Here is the line up of marshmallows in the box of lucky charms and what they represent:

  • Hearts – power to bring things to life
  • Shooting Stars – power to fly
  • Horseshoes – power to speed things up
  • Clovers – luck, but you will never know what kind of luck you’ll get
  • Blue Moons – power of invisibility
  • Rainbows – instantaneous travel from place to place
  • Balloons – power to make things float

Now all I need them to do is add a piping bag marshmallow for when I am having a bad decoarating day.

    There’s just something special about homemade cookies, especially chocolate chip cookies, so far as I’m concerned. It’s a great family activity, something even children can help with, and everyone loves eating the results…

    Loved that you created Lucky Charm (cereal) cookies and that you went to the trouble to do the research on how they came to be. I’m sure your son is enjoying both the wonderful cookies you made and that rare box of cereal being in the house 🙂

  3. Love these Melissa – they look magically delicious! 🙂

  4. Oh WOW! I love the research you did and the fun cookies and the gorgeous photography. You are so very creative Melissa! You really knocked this project out of the park! Thanks for sharing Melissa! Cristin

  6. Great post, Melissa! And thanks for the history behind Lucky Charms! Who knew? (PS- When I eat a bowl of Lucky Charms, I like to try to save the marshmallow pieces for last. It’s a bit tedious but so worth it in the end.)

      Aww, thank you so much Ms. Tami! It’s funny I never knew those little marshmallow bits had magical powers. Now all I need them to do is add a pipping bag for when I am having a bad decorating day.

  10. I just love your style girl. I was hoping someone would do the cereal & you didn’t let me down. I have a cookie crush on you. Lol!
