5 Desserts Starring Your Favorite Breakfast Cereals
Enjoy your favorite morning meal as a late-night treat.
Cracklin’ Oat Bran Oatmeal Raisin Skillet Cookie
Fans of the cinnamon-scented squares will fall hard for this cookie, in which Cracklin’ Oat Bran is mixed into the dough and sprinkled on top. Baking the cookie in an oven-safe skillet makes for a crisp exterior and soft and chewy center, which tastes best when enjoyed warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Cut into slices and serve to a crowd, or have everyone grab a spoon and dig straight into the skillet.

Golden Grahams Peanut Butter Truffles
These whimsical truffles are the perfect two-bite treat, and pack easily in a lunchbox for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Thanks to their shiny chocolate coating and sprinkling of Golden Grahams, they’re also elegant enough to serve at a party as a stress-free (and mess-free!) dessert. Alternatively, divvy up into decorative cellophane bags for easy, edible presents.

Soft-Baked Froot Loops Sugar Cookies
Though sugar cookies are often seen as boring (or reserved for holiday baking), this Froot Loops-studded variety is anything but. Refrigerating the dough before baking helps the cookies hold their shape, and ensures each one bakes up into soft and puffy perfection. Feel free to swap in any colorful cereal: Fruity Pebbles or Trix would be just as fun.

Mini Honey Nut Cheerios Almond Butter Cups
Come afternoon or midnight when chocolate cravings strike, we suggest turning to these adorable two-layer cups. They’re a great way to use up the end of a box of Cheerios, which always seems to be lurking in the pantry. Allow the nutty almond butter base to firm up in the freezer as you make the chocolate topping, and store finished cups in the freezer until ready to enjoy.

Cocoa Puffs Ice Cream Sandwiches
Cocoa Puff marshmallow treats stand in as cookies in these indulgent ice cream sammies, which are filled with Nutella and mocha-chip ice cream. The treat is frozen together as a sandwich, so all you have to do is slice and serve—no last-minute assembly required. Genius!
