Expert Tips

  • Lucky Charms® Bars: Omit cookie cutters. Cut mixture in pan into 2x1 1/2-inch bars. Makes about 50 bars.
  • For even more flavor and color, frost cutouts with a thin layer of creamy whipped frosting and sprinkle with decorator sugar.
  • For easy cleanup, spray a microwavable bowl with cooking spray before adding ingredients.
  • Make buttering waxed paper simple. Partially unwrap one end of a firm stick of butter or margarine. Hold waxed paper while rubbing with stick of butter. To avoid folding or tearing the waxed paper, move the stick of butter away from the hand holding the waxed paper.
