Yogurt-Dipped Cereal and Strawberry
What you need:
One dozen strawberries
2 cups Honey Nut Cheerios cereal
3/4 cup plain or vanilla yoghurt
One tablespoon honey
Mix the yoghurt and honey in a small bowl. Place the Cheerios cereal in a shallow dish. Dip each strawberry once or twice into the yoghurt and honey mixture until coated nicely then roll into the serving of Cheerios. Arrange the yoghurt-dipped strawberries in a plate and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes before serving. Gummy-Filled Popsicles
What you need:
Colourful gummy bears
Sprite
Popsicle mould
Popsicle sticks
Pour Sprite into each mould about 3/4 all the way. Drop-in gummy bears (as many as you want to or as many as your mould could accommodate). Place a popsicle stick into each image and place in the freezer until frozen all the way through. Once completely frozen, remove popsicles from the image and serve immediately! Crispy Stuffed S’mores
What you need:
7 cups of mini marshmallows
6 cups crisped rice cereal
1 bar Hershey’s Milk Chocolate
1/2 package graham cracker sheets
Five tablespoons butter
Melt the butter and 5 cups marshmallows together in a large pan over low heat. Stir in the crisped rice cereal until combined and remove from heat. Pour half of the mixture into a greased 9×9 inch pan. Spread evenly using a spatula. Layer with graham crackers, chocolate bar and 1 cup mini marshmallows. Broil for 30 seconds in an oven. When ready, pour the remaining butter, marshmallow and crisped rice cereal mixture on top of the s’ mores layer. Spread evenly again using a spatula. Top with remaining marshmallows and return to oven to broil for 1 minute. Allow cooling for a few minutes before slicing.
