Growing up, my sister and I would fight over who got to eat all the marshmallows in the Lucky Charms cereal box. After finishing the marshmallows, our mom would refuse to buy a new box until we ate the cereal too. These Lucky Charms Pancake Cups are the perfect way to eat a box of Lucky Charms (okay, the marshmallows) and a whole bunch of pancakes too for a sugar filled breakfast.
