This is something I love to do for holidays. I may have over done it just a little on the marshmallows this time, but my kids didn’t complain! They keep asking for “that special cereal.” It is simply a bowl of crispy rice cereal topped with marshmallows, Fall colored sugars, and sprinkles. Now how much more fun is this than just a bowl of rice cereal?
I’m sure the kids like it.
Mmmmm … Hyperactivity comes to mind. Can anyone say “sugar high”?
What a fun mom you are! 🙂

What a fun idea! My kids would love this, especially the sprinkles.

It’s pretty, but I don’t know if I’d go so far as to give them that much sugar at the start of the day. I could totally see doing it as a special treat for a birthday or holiday though … because we could use any color sprinkles to set the tone 🙂 Cute!

You could take it one step further and microwave it for 30 seconds – Voila! Instant rice krispy treats. We made Smore Pie last night.
A layer of graham cracker crumbs, Melted Marshmallows with a little milk mixed in, and chocolate pie filling on top.
I’ll post recipe and results later. It was a hit 🙂
My kids would LOVE this!!!
I should try that for my kids! I like to make them some (plain) oatmeal and toss in a handful of chocolate candies to get all warm and melty!
Whew – what a fun way to start the day! I’ll have to see if my girls would like this 🙂
Mine would pick out the marshmallows and ignore the cereal…

JDaniel would love all of this. He loves listening to rice cereal talk.

That is really adorable!
Kids??? Who needs kids to enjoy this fantastic treat? 🙂 It’s like a bowl of rice krispie treats.
This sure beats oatmeal and raisins!
I must confess, I too have actually given my kids sugar even though some may have turned a bit green at the thought. My latest: I gave my kids CHOCOLATE sandwiches for dinner…
I guess I figured that if my generation survived pitchers of Kool-Aid, my kids would survive chocolate spread every once in a while.

How simple and fun. Bet it would be hard to find a kid that didn’t like it 🙂
Charise @ I Thought I Knew Mama says
I don’t think any kid would say no to that!
Sugar Rush! 😉
