Hello Cereal Lovers! With Big G cereals, you can get creative with breakfast and snacks to help fuel your little learners and yourself during the school days. But don't think that cereal has to be just for eating as a bowl of cereal, because it can make some tasty treats too! Think about these goodies you could make:
I was sent a creative Big G Cereal back to school pack along with cereals and recipe cards. I decided to make their recipe for Cereal Almond Brittle as an afternoon treat. Oh wow, this smelled soooo yummy baking away!
Cereal Almond Brittle
from General Mills
2 cups Cheerios® cereal
2 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch® cereal
2 cups oats
1 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup real maple or maple-flavored syrup
Heat oven to 300°F. Line 1 large (17x14-inch) cookie sheet or 2 (15x10x1-inch) pans with foil; spray foil with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix both cereals, the oats and almonds; set aside.
In 1-quart saucepan, heat butter, brown sugar and syrup over medium heat, stirring frequently, until butter is melted and mixture boils. Pour over cereal mixture; stir until well coated. Spread mixture evenly on cookie sheet with rubber spatula until about 1/2 inch thick.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until almonds are golden brown. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Break into pieces with fingers. Store in tightly covered container.
The secret is not to stir the mixture the whole time it is baking and cooling. A sheet of brittle will form that can be broken into serving size pieces.
I packaged this brittle up for an after school treat for my kiddos. On each adorable line printed paper bag, I wrote silly little jokes on them. "Why didn't the teddy bear want any dessert? Because he was already stuffed!" heeeheee
The glitter smelly pens are pretty awesome too, they really smell like fruits and write so nice! The kids thought these were so cute and loved the brittle too.
