I loved the idea of these, but I'm really sorry to say that no one liked them that much. They were a bit too chewey for us, which I think was caused by the Special K Strawberry cereal, but I'm not sure. I used the strawberry preserves in them and they looked pretty and baked up nicely. It just wasn't for us. Thanks anyway for posting it.
These were great! I made them to have with tea for my grandparents, and they really enjoyed them. I didnt have any strawberry preserves on hand, so I used raspberry instead. I never thought of baking with cereal...what a neat idea!
