    We don't get shredded wheat in my country anymore (sadly), but I tried this on Weet-bix, using honey as my sweetener and I have to say, I love your Dad's "outside of the box" take on cereal - this was great! A wonderful way to get some extra protein into a quicker-than-quick, hot breakfast. So tasty - a definite winner and a keeper for me. Thank you for posting this recipe - I love it :)

    I tried this because I like shredded wheat and I like peanut butter, and I am looking for some quick and healthy breakfast solutions before heading out to work. I also love the heart-warming story in its introduction! However, this arrangement doesn't do anything for me, and I won't be making this again <i>for me</i>. I gave this 4 stars because I would definitely try this out on kids! I would think that kids will love it! :) BTW, the first time I made it it exploded in my microwave! Thanks, AmateurPastryChef, for posting! Made for <b>Healthy Choices Tag<b>.</b></b>

    Used 2 teaspoons of sugar and the results were suprisingly good. Will certainly do again for a quick, warm breakfast on a cold winter morning. Thanks APC.

    Something different and fun for the kids. I used natural peanut butter, and since it doesn't have sweetener, I added a swirl of chocolate syrup and a few drops of chocolate stevia. The warmth of the milk is great with shredded wheat; I would never have thought of it! Thanks.
