We all had a favorite cereal as a kid. My parents were pretty strict when it came to eating sugary meals for breakfast, but every once in a while I was able to enjoy a sweet treat. My favorite cereal was always Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which still rings true because I will use any excuse to cook or bake with cinnamon. Not to toot my own horn, but I make a killer cinnamon buttercream.
Recently I've been seeing a lot of really creative dessert recipes using all of the popular cereals when I was younger. Who know you could incorporate cereal into cakes, cookies, and even popsicles!
From Fruit Loops to Captin Crunch and Trix, I wouldn't pass up the chance to try my childhood cereals in crunchy dessert form. Would you? Scroll through the gallery of yummy treats and decide!
Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Paired with a cinnamon cake and Cinnamon Toast Crunch buttercream, I would use any excuse to eat these bad boys for breakfast.
As a kid, I would have LOVED this milk and cereal infused popsicle as a sweet breakfast treat, but the adult in me is screaming to spike this with Kaluha.
This toffee recipe has a nice peanut buttery crunch thanks to a healthy addition of Puffs cereal.

When baked, I'm sure these cookies make for a crunchy and gooey treat. I love the combination of marshmallows and Corn Flakes in this recipe!
