Yogurt-dipped cereals and strawberries

What you need:

  • 1 dozen strawberries

  • 2 cups Honey Nut Cheerio cereal

  • 3/4 cup plain or vanilla yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon of honey

Mix yogurt and honey in a small bowl. Place the Cheerios grain in a low bowl. Dip each strawberry once or twice in the yogurt and honey mixture until nicely coated, then roll in the bowl of Cheerios. Place the yogurt-dipped strawberries in a plate and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes before serving.

Gummy-Filled Popsicles

What you need:

  • Colorful rubber bears

  • Sprite

  • Popsicle mold

  • Popsicle stick

Pour Sprite into each mold about 3/4 all the way. Drop in the rubber bears (as many as you want or as many as your shape can accommodate). Place a popsicle stick in each mold and place in the freezer until it is completely frozen. Once completely frozen, remove popsicles from the mold and serve immediately!

Crispy Stuffed S’mores

What you need:

  • 7 cups of mini marshmallows

  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal

  • 1 bar of Hershey’s milk chocolate

  • 1/2 pack of Graham cracker sheets

  • 5 tablespoons butter

Melt butter and 5 cups of marshmallows together in a large saucepan over low heat. Stir in the crispy rice porridge until combined and remove from heat. Pour half of the mixture into a greased 9×9 inch pan. Spread evenly with a spatula. Make graham biscuits, chocolate bar and 1 cup mini marshmallows. Cook for 30 seconds in an oven.

When ready, pour the remaining butter, marshmallow and crispy rice cereal mixture on top of the s’mores layer. Spread evenly again with a spatula. Top with the remaining marshmallows, and return to the oven for chicken for 1 minute. Allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing.
