This recipe is perfect to make with your kids. It’s easy, delicious, and doesn’t require any cooking. Plus, it’s a fun way to add cereal to your children’s diets. I use Fiber One™ Protein (any variety will do) to give these treats the crunchy texture that I love. A few years ago, I read that crunchy foods are relaxing, and it must be the case for me because I love snacking on foods with great textures. These balls are creamy and sweet, and they look adorable when you place them in mini cupcake liners. They’re ideal to serve when your children have friends over, or for when you go camping. Because this recipe yields so many, you can keep them refrigerated and well sealed until you’re ready to serve them. Try them out and let me know how you liked them! MORE + LESS -
