You Can Use Cereal To Make These Delicious Desserts
Cereal is considered mostly as a breakfast food. It's commonly crunchy wheat pieces, usually sweetened or tossed in a sweetened coating to give it flavor as well as a color. It's visually appealing, especially for kids!
However, cereal can be more than just breakfast food which you may eat in a bowl with milk. It can be an ingredient for no-bake desserts or even a substitute coating for breadcrumbs when you're making crunchy fried chicken or fish fingers.
The easiest way to use cereal as dessert is really to just eat it as is. After all, it's sweetened, it's crunchy, and it's flavored. That's not fun, though.
If you want to level up your cereal from a boring bowl of soggy wheat bits into a more delectable plate of delicious treats, here are the desserts you can make using cereal:
