Happy National Cereal Day!!! Did you know that March 7th is National Cereal Day? Cereal has always been a staple around my home, (growing up, and even now). It’s so easy to keep stored and quick to eat. My kids go through so many boxes each week, and I have to remind my growing teenage boys to PLEASE not have a bowl 10 minutes before dinner!  I was sent a box of cereal goodies from my friends at General Mills, and it was a compete surprise! There were so many fun things inside, I thought it would be fun to say THANK YOU by sharing this Trix Cereal Bowl recipe with you all.

To make this Trix Cereal bowl you simply need:

  1. Trix cereal
  2. mini marshmallows
  3.  butter
  4. white chocolate chips

Trix Cereal Bowl on National Cereal Day

This is DEFINITELY more of a treat/dessert recipe, since the bowl was made out of marshmallows, butter, and white chocolate.

What are some of your favorite cereals growing up? What fun cereals do you like to surprise your kids with? My best friend from high school, Natalie, still likes to remind me of the days that we’ve pull out the milk and bowls at my mom’s house, and pour ourselves a heaping bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Those were the days…

Trix has always been one of my favorites, and I seriously could.not.stop. eating the bowl part with the marshmallows mixed in–serious YUM!

GO grab a box of your kids favorite cereal, and offer it as an after school snack in a cereal bowl…or even more fun, CEREAL for DINNER!

I love the colors in TRIX, double the fun!

To make this Trix Cereal bowl you need:

  • 4 cups Trix cereal
  • 10 oz. bag mini marshmallows
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

Simply melt the marshmallows, butter, and white chocolate together. I do this in a microwave for 1 minute, stir, then 15 second increments. After it’s all melted, pour in 4 cups of cereal. I wanted to make sure the bowl stayed together well, so there was more marshmallow to cereal ration than a normal cereal treat might have (normally 6 cups).

After you’ve got the mixture, get some butter on your hands, and butter the inside of your favorite cereal bowl, and mold the mixture to the bowl, patting and pressing it firmly together. I popped it in the freezer for 10 minutes to meld together more.  I then slid a butter knife between the bowl and the treat, to pop it right out.

The kids will think this is so much fun, surprise them with a cereal bowl after school today!

National Cereal Day recipe idea

I did not pour milk in, but if you put it back in the bowl that shaped the cereal bowl, it’d be fun to eat out of it that way.

Here is a picture of some of the package that General Mills sent me:

I’m in love with that stone bowl with “Kristen Duke Photography” etched on the inside! So thoughtful…

My daughter really loved the “fortune teller”

Though I was sent a surprise box of cereal goodies from General Mills, I decided to do this post on my own, without payment, just for fun, because I love cereal THAT much!
