8 Ways to Take Your Cereal Game to the Next Level


Look, we all love Special K.

Rice Krispies? Delicious! Pops? Pour us a bowl! Fruit Loops? Sure, why not?!?

But sometimes it’s fun to mix things up and create your own breakfast-based treat, isn’t it?

With that in mind, consider the following cereal recipes and prepare to have your mind blown right off…

  1. Cinnamon Toast Crunch Popcorn Recipe

    • It’s about time I combine two of my favorite things. Sleeping and eating. Oh wait, that won’t work. CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH and POPCORN. Yeahhhh, that’s what I’m talking about. The best cereal on earth (that I never, ever, ever keep in my house!) and the greatest snack in the whole wide world. Match made in …
  2. Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bars Recipe

    • Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, aka, my kryptonite. I don’t keep the stuff in my house because I can’t resist it. While writing this post, I discovered a Cinnamon Toast Crunch cocktail. I’m doomed. DOOMED. And then there’s Cinnamon Toast Crunch popcorn to snack on. I’m envisioning a party centered around all things Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Anyone with me, …
  3. Peanut Butter Cinnamon Toast Crunch Fudge Recipe

    • I’ll admit it – this recipe is oddball, and maybe doesn’t even sound that good or interesting. You’ll just have to muster up one of those ‘blind trust’ moments. This dessert didn’t start out with peanut butter. Well, let me back up. I stumbled upon a recipe for peanut butter marshmallow squares. So technically they did start with …
  4. Nutella Muddy Buddies Recipe

    • Nutella has become one of my biggest weaknesses. I am seriously hooked on it. I can never get enough Nutella in my diet. Whether it’s Nutella popcorn, or Nutella hot chocolate, or this Nutella muddy buddies recipe, I crave Nutella constantly. I think it’s my body trying to make up for all the years of me not eating …
  5. Homemade Cookie Crisp Recipe

    • Cookie Crisp cereal is pretty much a kid’s dream. Cookies? Sanctioned for breakfast? If only my mom ever bought them. But the jig was up on that one. We never got to bask in the glow of cookie breakfasts. Now that I’m a grown-up, I get to decide if chocolate chip cookies are a breakfast item. And I say …
  6. Fruity Pebbles Sugar Cookies Recipe

    • Friends, I am pleased to say that I survived Spring Break. It was touch-and-go there for a while. There was one particular moment when my 11-year-old and 3-year-old were fighting over Xerox paper during breakfast and I wasn’t sure we’d all pull through. But here we are, all alive, and only one of us is slightly wine …
  7. Reese’s Puffs Cereal Bars Recipe
    • Reese’s Puffs Cereal Bars Photo
    • Ever since making these highly popular Honey Nut Cheerio cereal bars, I’ve wanted to make a peanut butter version with Reese’s Puffs cereal, but I REFUSE to buy cereal if it’s not on sale. This recipe has been months in the making. Not because it took that much work to develop it. Nope, these bars are ready in minutes, and …
  8. Peanut Butter Honey Cereal Bars Recipe

    • If you love making snacks out of cereal, or you just want to up your arsenal of on-the-go breakfast, you can also try these Reese’s Puff cereal bars, the best dang granola bars ever, these oatmeal raisin cookie granola bars, or these peanut butter honey granola bites. When I go grocery shopping I always spend WAY too much time in the …
