Good way to use up warehouse cereal that my kids had grown tired of eating for breakfast. I used Ghirardelli brownie mix, had it on hand. Turned out great! Thanks!
I must have messed this up because my cereal was soggy on the bottom... do you think I didn't crush the cereal enough? Don't get me wrong - we ate them anyway, it just wasn't "crunch" as the name promised... I'll try again - hopefully with better results! Ok... 12/8/2009... I tried them again. When I crushed the cereal this time I pulvarized it in the blender. YUMMMM! 5 stars now!!!
Fortunately I found this recipe for our Cinco De Mayo party last weekend. The adults and kids loved them. In fact I'm making it again for Mothers day. Since I wasn't sure how many boxes to get - I bought 2 - 12.8 oz boxes -used 1 box plus 1 cup of 2nd box 1 box would have been fine. Since I found the cereal also is great as a snack - I bought the 1lb 8.9 oz box which was cheaper per ld. Bad me. Crunch, cinnamon and fudge - can't beat it!
I was looking for a "Mexican" dessert for a Fiesta party and came upon these make ahead unusual brownies. I was skeptical at first but made them and boy are they GOOD! Very easy, very rich and chocolaty with that unusual crunch of the cereal on the botton. I used Sugar in the Raw on top with the cinnamon and brushed off the excess that did not adhere. Because they are so rich, I cut into inch squares and was was appreciated for a pop in the mouth size. Thanks Jenny!
