These delicious bars—made with cereal and dried strawberries—are perfect for a special grab-and-go breakfast!
cup Chocolate Cheerios™ cereal
cups Frosted Cheerios™ cereal
tablespoon packed brown sugar
cup dried strawberries, finely chopped
Powdered sugar, if desired
Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. In large bowl, measure cereals; set aside.
In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add brown sugar and honey; stir until well combined. Cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
Pour syrup mixture over cereal and stir to coat evenly. Stir in strawberries. Place 2- to 2 1/2-inch round biscuit cutter on cookie sheet. Spoon 3 rounded tablespoons of cereal mixture in center of biscuit cutter; press firmly. Remove cutter. Repeat with remaining cereal mixture. Refrigerate 15 minutes or until set. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Store in covered container in refrigerator up to 5 days.
It’s helpful to use waxed paper or cooking parchment paper to press the cereal mixture into the biscuit cutter.
These tea cakes can be stored at room temperature in a covered container, but they'll hold their shape better if refrigerated.
